Our reverse cycle aircon died a few weeks ago so ATM we are using a portable fan heater in the lounge room and column heaters in the bedrooms. I hate winter!!

So no heating at all in your place? I would go crazy!

I know it's old and a rental... But come on.. Show some respect! The poor house is in need of some fixing up.
It's nearly 9am here and it -2 degrees, so yeah, the no heating is really hurting us today.
Our lease runs out in 1 month, we pay $400 a week here and DH just found a house 15 mins down the road with heating and air con, it's newer, bigger and a lot more pleasing on the eye and only $280 per week as it's a little more rural, I've told him to get some application forms ASAP.

I'm in sydney and use no heating. Just warm clothes.
I can't afford to have heaters going.

We live in Adelaide, and are currently using no heating - just warm clothes.
I'll admit, it's cold, but we'll survive. I think the coldest night we've had so far was about 8.
We have a fantastically efficient gas heater, but had to remove it to replace a window. It hasn't yet gone back in, and there's no way we're using the oil heater unnecessarily. It's gone on a few times in our daughter's room on chilly nights, but that's it.

We have a new house and use the gas heater which is one of those 'fake' fireplaces. It's brilliant, heats up an entire 2 storey house. We have ducted air-com but never use it in winter, the heater does the job. Not sure how the gas bill go this quarter, I'll have to report back...

Gas heater, but it isn't built into the house (and there isn't a gas supplier here, just big bottle swaps). It's expensive and bit of a pain. We've just installed a reverse cycle air conditioner (window/wall kind), it's usable year round and should be pretty efficient. It'll probably be expensive to run as well, but at least we won't get caught out and be without heat for a few days
