 I like that it keeps my house warm.  I hate that it is 20 years old, and I'm going to have to break down and replace it soon.

I have gas force air (duct work) heat.  I pay less than $50 a month, so it is really cheap.

The only con about our heater is the fact that it can get expensive. We have central heat and air.

It's propane .. my dh is in the propane business, he's a service tech and if something goes wrong, if it's with the propane end of it he can fix it.  If it's the system itself ... well, we call our friend Jim who has his own heating & a/c business and he takes care of us for a good  price.

It takes a long time for our house to warm up. That is the biggest con. They heaters do stay warm once they are there, though.

When we bought our house, the boiler was from 1948. The house was built in 1939 with a coal burning furnace, and switched to natural gas.

I have electric heat, since there is no gas where I live. It is a good heat except it is very dry and we have to have a humidifier with it.

We love wood heat. The smell, the feel of it. But the wood through the house is a bummer...
