One of the complications with the space the people I was with and I live in, is the Winter season winds. The winds can get so wild, that you hear the cracking of the trees, even from inside. Every one of us live in the mountains and any time you hear that crack, you are already preparing for needing to go without energy. When the people I was with and I don’t have power, the people I was with and I don’t have heating. Every one of us purchased a wood burning stove and had it installed into our home office. I really liked it for the looks, and not even for the use of it. I just wanted to be warm if the power went off again. That came around all too soon. Every one of us had a generator that normally turned on, so the people I was with and I didn’t go without heat. This time, the generator didn’t turn on, and the people I was with and I didn’t have lights or heating when the people I was with and I woke up. It was so nice to be able to go into the home office and get the wood burner not working. I was surprised at how efficiently the wood burner worked. The heating made its way all the way back the hallway and into the home offices. This year, when Winter season came around, the people I was with and I started the wood burner right away. Every one of us thought it would just make a fantastic addition to the gas furnace and make our gas furnace more efficient while saving on our fuel bills. It not only saved our gas furnace from now working so hard, but it saved us more than fifty percent on our energy costs and on our heating fuel costs. The wood burner is more than decoration, it is our main source of heating, now.
