When we built our house near Fethiye we had full gas central heating installed. With the huge rise in costs of bottled gas over the years we can no longer afford to use it. A couple of Sobas burning wood and coal now provide all the heating we need in the house.

I have also heard that in the cities that have natural gas many people are returning to use the wood and coal burning sobas (stoves) because of the cost of using the gas.

We have the heat system in the air conditioners, so will wait until we spend a winter there and see how we get on.

What I would say is the most important is to check your insulation (walls, doors and windows). There is no point investing in a good heating system when it is all seeping out the windows.

Running costs should be far lower down on the coast.
You're not kidding! It cost me 350TL for enough firewood for the winter. I started lighting the stove in November and I ran out of wood last week, got a few scraps from scavenging around my garden and using some of the offcuts from my house build (wooden house).

So hopefully we will be kept nice and warm.
