To heat or not to heat. That is the question :-)
We just moved into a house that has a ground level, up 5 steps to bedroom/bath/kitchen/dining level. Then down to a "half" basement (full view windows). My question is, would you open the heat registers in the basement level or keep them closed for the most efficient heating costs. Some people say it's less expensive to not heat areas that are seldom used (keep them closed), others say it's better to keep them open. What do you think? BTW we have forced air heating. Thanks.
