Hey, for the Ice Road Truckers
among us -- and I know you're out there -- I gotta say DW and I learned a great neophyte lesson during last year's record-setting blizzard: when it's REALLY cold, bite the bullet and use coach heat. As the temperature drops below 10F or so, you might curtail the portable source all together.
Why? Because, at sub-freezing temps, every BTU your portable heat source puts out upstairs means the basement heat
comes on less; it's easier to freeze pipes/pumps downstairs.
