    Absolutely no where to store anything sadly. DP told me last night if we can get enough back at tax time we will look to move. I have wanted to move for over a year. So thats some good news.

    We have lots of blankets ;-)

    We are in Brisbane so it isn't too bad.. I did buy a little electric heater but only run it when DD has a bath so her room isn't cold when i dress her.

    I miss living at mum and dads where they had a fireplace!!!

    Hydronic heating is the best for sure!!!!!

    We have ducted and also a fabulous fireplace with a American style stove thing in it (does the same as those awful looking conara things)..the house is heated just with fire mostly..ducted is pricey..but worth it..especially here in Melb

    We have reverse cycle units. It is our first winter here so goodness knows what our bill will be.

    We're trying to use 'normally' to get an idea of what that will cost and then adjust as required!

    We have a gas heater in the lounge, so we Freeze in our bedroom! - I'll add that its our first winter in toowoomba from Brisbane, so we aren't used to the cold!

    We have ducted air con which also does heating.

    I have no idea how much it would cost to run - we live in Qld and it's rarely cold enough to require it.

    i dont know what they r called but the ones that r on the wall and have air con/heating. Has a remote and the motor is on the outside of the house.
    Anyways, it's pathetic. Expensive, noisy, inefficient, dry heat.
    We r currently in a rental so puttig up with it but use it as minimal as possible.

    good old fireplace. well its not old, the whole house is only 2 1/2 years old! it only costs DH time and petrol to go out and cut the wood(live on a property full of nice hot burning ironbark!), it heats the whole house (except the 3 spare rooms that we dont use and keep the door closed). the loungeroom is generally 23-27degrees, prob down to 18-20 in the morning
