This house has 2 fireplaces and a reverse cycle unit. I don't use either of them. The reverse cycle thingy costs too much to run, and makes the house stuffy when it finally starts to warm up, and I didn't want to even bother. We used the fireplace at our last house, and it was just a heap of trouble for me. Buying wood, cutting wood, storing the wood, hauling it inside, bla bla. We have no carpets at all, high ceilings and live in a cold area, but we deal. We wear socks, layers, walk around in bathrobes. Sit with blankets on. When it gets really bad I set up a little electric heater in the girls' room before they go to bed and turn it off sometime before I go to bed, so that they are warm at least.

We have hydronic ducted heating, one fireplace and a coonara. The hydronic heating is good in that is a lot quieter than normal ducted heating but it's pretty useless at one particular end of the house. The fireplace is huge and would work probably too well if it in fact worked at all. The chimney is blocked so it's just a old ATM. The coonara is awesome though we do go through a fair bit of wood. But it heats the end of the house that the hydronic doesn't so we use it a fair bit. We also have a reverse cycle air con unit that never gets used for heating. It would be useless in our house.
