Ha! try an ALL electrified house ( "the wave of the future" they told us in the early 80's)
The rate I'm running at I think the 2 ton @ $250 per, will get me thru till the end of February and possibly the small amount needed to get thru March. I say this only because I've tested at dead idle and getting 4 days burn out of 100lb. hopper when the temps averaged high 30's at night and 50's/low 60's during the day (typical mid March temps around these parts).
So $500 for Coal heating, I'm clearing $1800 not including the Stove Cost.....Break even if I include the Stove cost, What a Deal!
