I found that just the stove top burners will heat the thing up in pretty short order.
I wanted to do it with the oven once in my house during a blackout (snow storm), but on the newer gas ranges, the oven won't light w/o electricity.
stove top burners will, though..(with a match). apparently, the oven's gas valve is electronic.
anyway, power was out for 8 hours in the dead of winter, and it was starting to get uncomfortably cold. I had to shut the stove burners off after a half hour or so. It was amazing how fast they heated up the whole house.
