Now that my fiance as well as I are both getting older, we have found that the weather affects the way we feel throughout the day. It seems that arthritis has now set into every joint in the body. And during the Winter season, both of us have had to supplement our boiler gas furnace with our wood burning heater. Since he and I spend most of our time in our living area, it seems the smartest move both of us can make. We supplement the heating in this area. Both of us are now on a set income. And so we have to watch every penny that we need to spend. Both of us are typically looking for someplace to save a little bit of money every month. Both of us have found that we were able to save a big amount of currency, during the cold season season, by keeping our thermostat set at 65 degrees. And we have a living area that includes the dining room and the living room. The small wood burning heater that we have keeps the temperature in this area around seventy degrees. And even though it’s a bit of a job to bring the wood in and make sure there is wood burning at all time, the extra work is worth more than the cost of a tank of oil and electricity use. We both have found that our energy bills have lowered by 10%. And our oil usage has been being down by nearly 25%. It is cooler in the bedroom as well as the bathroom, however we all like a cooler bedroom. And so we obtained a small section heating system for the bathroom which is able to heat up that area quickly. And plus it only runs while we are taking our showers.
