How do you keep warm, and what’s your bills like?

We're into our 3rd winter here in Canberra and I'm interesting in how others stay warm and keep their bills down. Got any tips and tricks?

    1st year our gas bill our ducted heating $1200 for the quarter after running it 6am-8am, 6pm-10pm at 23-24 degrees. We’ve dropped this to around $400-450 quarter by running it only from 6-10pm and at 19-20 degrees.

    Is this the norm for others?
