We did until we finally turned our heat on.. But I like them when it is really cold and you just want that little extra warmth.

Only electric ones. They were necessary when we lived in Alaska. It just wouldn't stay warm in some rooms.

The only place I have one is in our Florida Room which is my sons playroom.  We have a fireplace in there, but I'm to afraid to use it with him running around so we have a space heater on top of the mantel which does little more than take the chill off for him.

I got one of those electric fake fireplaces. I'm loving it!

I've had to use them fine. Last winter I stayed with my mom and the insulation in her house was very poor. Like you could see sunlight coming in the outlets.

I don't like them, but I have to use one all year long in my office.  If I get too cold I hurt worse, but I'm not going to make my son have a heat stroke because of something he can't help.
