    What do you guys use for emergency heat when your power goes off, say in an ice storm? My home is all electric & I have no fireplace, wood/corn burner, etc. Was contemplating a big generator, but $4000 is alot, for just in case.

    we bought a generator and had a second box wired for furnace use. Now all we have to do is flip a switch, plug in and start the generator and it powers the furnace. all said and done it was about $1,000. Thinking of the damage burst pipes can cause her in the winter, I thought it was a good investment.
