Room heaters vs. natural gas furnace?

I'm trying to save money this winter. Our gas bill jumps drastically when we turn on the heat. Would an electric (infrared) room heater with a 1,000 sq.ft. capacity (my entire house is not much bigger than that) help keep costs down? Here is an example of the type of heater I'm referring to...... show more I'm trying to save money this winter. Our gas bill jumps drastically when we turn on the heat.

Do any of you use these as your primary source of heat? Do you have a preferable brand? Any information you can give me will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
