One of the complications with the section every one of us live in, is the Winter 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 every one of us don’t have power, every one of us don’t have heating. Every one of us bought a wood burning stove and had it installed into our kitchen. I absolutely liked it for the looks, and not even for the use of it. I just wanted to be moderate if the power went off again. That came around all too soon. Every one of us had a generator that normally turned on, so every one of us didn’t go without heat. This time, the generator didn’t turn on, and every one of us didn’t have lights or heating when every one of us woke up. It was so nice to be able to go into the kitchen and 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 and into the home offices. This year, when Winter came around, every one of us started the wood burner instantaneously. Every one of us thought it would just make a nice 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 working so hard, but it saved us more than fifty percent on our utility bills and on our heating fuel costs. The wood burner is more than decoration, it is our main source of heating, now.
