Fill one circle for the kind of heat used most.

[] Electric heat pump
[] Other built-in electric units (permanently installed in wall, ceiling, or baseboard)

[] Room heaters without flue or vent, burning gas, oil, or kerosene (not portable)
[] Fireplaces, stoves, or portable room heaters of any kind

"This question refers to the type of heating equipmentand not to the fuel used. An electric heat pumpis sometimes known as a reverse cycle system. It may be centrally installed with ducts to the rooms or individual heat pumps in the rooms. A floor, well, or pipeless furnace delivers warm air to the room right above the furnace or to the room(s) on one or both sides of the wall in which the furnace is installed and does not have ducts leading to the other rooms. Any heater that you plug into an electric outlet should be counted as a portable room heater."
