I currently happen to live in the northern region of a southern state. The weather around here is almost regularly hot plus humid, so it’s quite unlikely for myself and others to need any heating system to keep myself and others regularly comfortable. Our winters are rarely cold enough to even justify using it, although I do have a fireplace in our house. It’s really entirely hot plus comfortable, plus it adds an aesthetic appeal to our home office just from existing that I simply couldn’t do without. Sure, it’s mostly for decoration, but this thing really helps out. It does a number for myself and others when I need to be warm. See, a few years ago, there was a time when every one of us had one of the coldest winters I’d ever even known here. It was cold, even by northern standards, as there was already an entire month where the temperature never creeped over forty degrees on any day. While the weather was fair as long as you had some kind of heating system, of course several of our neighbors overclocked their systems in an extreme effort to hot their cabin for hours on end. Most people have tiny gas furnaces down here that aren’t meant to perform at that capacity at all, so several of the folks in our neighborhood managed to break down their heating system just due to the abuse. I, on the other hand, relied on our fireplace during that time for its intended purpose. After starting the fire, really it only took about twenty minutes to hot up completely from the cold outside. I bet our neighbors were terribly jealous, as they saw the hot smoke coming from our chimney indicating our ability to cope with the chilly temperatures.
