This. Never feel guilty for running your collection in the winter.
It's more efficient than a space heater... (Though that isn't saying
much, but look at how many people use them...)

For a while I ran my large rack Onyx off a generator because my house
didn't have 220. I was measuring compute performance in instructions
per gallon.
