Very, very rarely have we run the furnace, we use an EdenPure heater and I wired the furnace blower to run without the burner to circulate the air/heat when it gets down in the 30's & 40's in FL. Keeps the basement warm also just by opening a slide vent I put in the basement. I also sealed off the area between the alum rafters and attached the round duct to it to get the duct work out of the way in the basement. Did the same on the driverside for the bathroom. Added benefit is it also keeps the floor warmer.

Unfortunately we have to use our furnace in the mornings here in Michigan this time of year hand in the early spring . The rest of the year we can get by with the fireplace to take could chill off in the mornings. I sometimes wonder which would be more cost effective, the fireplace or the furnace.

I believe you said you pay for your electric, so that makes it a tough call. For most of us non-seasonal, if we had the electric option like a fireplace then that's the best bet as almost all non-seasonal don't pay for electric.
