Aloha Friday- Home Heating

Kailani over at An Island life likes to take it easy on this day. We ask a question for our visitor to give their two cents. For more followers click on the Aloha Friday banner.

There are all kinds of Home heating in the market today. We are a very diversified world. Some heat with Oil, Gas, Wood , Hot water or Heat Pumps. A newer one on the market, for some years, is GeoThermal. Of course there are some who still use Electric heaters.

Here's Your Question of the Day:

What type of Heat source do you use in your home?


We use a Heat Pump however we are thinking about going GeoThermal. Looking into it now. It is suppose to be a more Greener choice. My parents have had it for some years and their Heating bill has gone down. They use to use Oil. I have lived in homes that have used all the above listed. I really think Gas heat is Warmer. We also have a pellet stove. We use that all winter long. It is also a much warmer heat source. Even though we do have a fireplace,our use of it is limited. I feel too much heat is lost, but it is nice to cozy up by it on a snow blowing day with a cup of Hot chocolate....Oh I must stop now.

  3. Aloha. We are using gas fireplaces and electric. Having the gas makes heating this mountain house cheaper. But, we will be buying or building a house, hopefully in the new year, so I need to research what I want long term.

  5. We use propane since we live in the boondocks. We're hoping to go geothermal though w/ a well on our property that didn't produce enough for consumption but does produce enough for the other.

    Love your new solar panels!

  6. We use electric, but we do live in a cookie cutter house - the neighbor houses all look similar and have the same appliances.

  7. I don't really know what kind of heater our house has, I live in military housing. I'm in Hawaii, haven't had to turn the heat on yet and I don't know if I ever will.

  8. Do I sound like an idiot because I don't really know? I know that we use gas - so probably gas.
