To be more specific, burning wood to heat the home.
As many of you know, we have a wood stove which is our only source of heat at the moment. When I bought the wood stove, I knew that the furnace we had was on its last leg. But I had no idea that it would would go up as soon as it did. It is/was original with the house, which was built in 1986. As one of the guys who came to look at it said, it’s “ancient”.
So, I thought I’d share some of the benefits of burning wood to heat the home!
Hope you enjoy!
Many people see using wood to heat as an evil, even though it has been a source of heating and cooking fuel for forever! Many people are starting to burn wood again to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, and save money on energy bills. There are many benefits to wood heat as a primary or secondary heating source. There is also annual maintenance to be done on the system.
All info comes from https://www.builddirect.com/blog/home-heating-with-wood-stoves-benefits-and-maintenance/, if not my own words.
At the moment, it is 77 degrees in the house and 49 degrees outside. Most days, if I can help it, shorts and a sleeveless tee are my normal dress. Even during the winter. This wood stove is very efficient – most days I only have to put a new log in the stove every few hours. Load it up at night before bed (around 830pm) and it’s good to go until morning. Of course, someone is usually up around 330am.
