Never misses a beat. My car is not garaged. Should I chance it when its -15 to -20 degrees, or is it time to replace the battery before the bitter cold gets here?

Run the appliance as low as you can to maintain dwelling temp - longer circulation times = not herkey jerkey on/off pump cycles = are the key to efficient and comfortable operation

Burn as you need,but do stay ahead of the Conditions you're combatting. To me,it takes much less time to get behind,so allow more time for pushing the Heat outward prior to the Hard Cold and 20-40 MPH winds that have been called for !
