One of the problems with the area the people I was with and I live in, is the Winter winds. The winds can get so wild, that you hear the cracking of the trees, even from inside. Both of us live in the mountains in addition to 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. Both of us bought a wood burning stove in addition to had it installed into our home office. I particularly liked it for the looks, in addition to 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. Both 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, in addition to 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 in addition to get the wood burner working. I was surprised at how efficiently the wood burner worked. The heating made its way all the way back the hallway in addition to into the bedrooms. This year, when Winter came around, the people I was with and I started the wood burner instantly. Both of us thought it would just make a superb addition to the gas furnace in addition to make our gas furnace more efficient while saving on our fuel bills. It not only saved our gas furnace from working so hard, however it saved us more than fifty percent on our yearly bills in addition to on our heating fuel costs. The wood burner is more than decoration, it is our main source of heating, now.
