When the power goes out, the NG generator kicks in. And the Geothermal heating and cooling keeps on rolling............

Kerosene heaters are $100- ish ea . Big @$$ wired in whole house generators are several $ thousands . You pays your money and takes your choice , but the cost effectiveness difference is pretty blatant .

I have a wood stove in my living room that may not heat whole house but definetlly will keep it warm to survive

Wood stoves are a bit labor intensive keeping fire wood in stock.

I also have a kerosene heater that I use I shop that can heat house if needed along with a propane salamander for Forced air heater that will really heat up a space when needed. Propane tanks readily available and easy to store
Those options along with generator that will supply 208/110 back fed thru garage panel to power forced air gas furnace if needed.

If using kerosine heater as back up,use kerosine heater fuel from Lowe’s,ect. Instead of kerosine. Much cleaner odderless fuel and have co2 detector in house to be safe.
Those are my back up heat options.

Personally with cost,no reason to not have have a portable generator of some capacity on hand to power frog and few lights in case of power outage imo 😊

The downsides of the 3 alternative heat sources:

Ventless propane - carbon monoxide. Do not go to sleep with it on.

Kerosene - black soot, when the wick needs maintenance.

Wood stove - dusty smoke goes through the house, when opening the doors.

Actually $12K installed with the automatic switch. The switch was almost as much as the generator.

We have medical issues that require electrical power, so a generator was a no-brainer choice for us. It might not be the best choice for someone else.

Gas furnace requires electricity to operate the fan so it won't burn up. So, a generator is also the best way to heat our home. Also, Netflix.
