The Hondas are out of my price range - way too expensive. I'm not worried about the noise - when the power goes out there are a bunch of gennys running in my neighborhood anyhow.
Unfortunately my house is not insulated well at all - my kitchen used to be a screened in porch (now all windows) and it didn't even have heat in it when we bought it. We did put some vents in there but it's still extremely cold in there as well as on the 2nd floor. Heck I'm wearing thermals right now, lol, and I'm still cold. We need to insulate the attic but my husband can't do it, I can't do it, and eventually you run out of money to pay people to do these things.
