I would invest in a small space heater. A simple ceramic space heater from Home Depot, Target or Wal-Mart will only run you about $50 and is very energy efficient. Get one with a thermostat on it so it only turns on when you need it to.

i know this sounds ridiculous but...i have a minor in sustainable design and have came accross two really good methods of keeping a greenhouse warm during cold times. 1) have two 55 gal drums of water in the greenhouse. during the day the light will travel into the greenhouse and heat the water drums...and at night the heat will dissapate out of the drums and into the air. or 2) you can have two or three rabbits in a cage in the green house. feed them food scraps or cheap rabbit food. see rabbits have a metabolism thats far greater than than of humans, so just them breathing and living will give off mass amounts of body heat. its enough to keep the greenhouse warm during the winter. and i HAVE tried both of these ideas and they both work. probably not as easy as a heater, but way cheaper and no power lines running out to the green house. anyway good luck.
