I think you are over-thinking this 'problem'. There's no way this is
going to come out negative versus, for example, paying to store your RV.
We're not talking about very much heat here... average temperature for
Youngstown, Ohio is only substantially below 40* for 3 months ( 30, 24,
and 26 for December through February, 38 for March ). Keeping it at
normal house temperature would, I'm sure, be really expensive, but 40*F
should not be.
If you have some sort of insulated workspace, as suggested, it should
stay pretty close to that even without heat. My semi-insulated 2-car
attached garage near Chicago ( only a few degrees colder on average,
despite its chilly reputation ) doesn't go much below 30* even when I'm
not using it to park (warm) cars.
