(I'm resurrecting this poll for newer members to weigh in.) Poll Description: How long have you been heating your home, at least partially, with a fuel 'slightly different' than most? Alternative fuels are kind of hard for me to pin down exactly, but I think you know what I mean. Mostly I'm talking about fuels OTHER THAN natural gas, propane, and heating oil. This would include, but might not be limited to, wood, coal, geothermal, solar, other alternatives. Please answer the POLL question based upon how many years, going backwards from today, you've been heating your home with alternative fuel. If you need clarification before responding to the poll, ask a question by replying to this post.
