Keeping My 2001 LXi Warm in Winter

Keeping My 2001 LXi Warm in Winter
Hi

We were always comfortable in the winter while driving my 83 FC35
My 2001 LXi does not seem to be near as comfortable. We have the engine heat on - the three furnaces on and I still get complaints.
Any suggestions?
While parked all seems to be fine. Not sure if the insulation is not sufficient or the windows.

thanks

Are you running the AquaHot furnaces and the electric furnaces or just one or the other? I haven't run in Chicago cold temps yet, but we have traveled several times in freezing temps and have been warm enough so far.

I forgot to ask, were the bay heaters going, too?

Thanks for replying. The aqua hot is on - but not the generator.
Should I have to run the generator as well?

I will check the temperature setting on the bay heaters. What temp setting do you recommend. It seems like the last time I check them they were in the 50 degree range.

Thanks

I would consider running the generator, as it would allow you to turn on the electric baseboard heaters in addition to running the aquahot heaters. When it gets colder, I will run the basement at almost what I've got he house set at. Helps to warm the floor some.
