My Renewable Resource

christopherhJuly 21, 2013

Time to get the firewood split for the coming winter. A real renewable resource for warmth here in northern New England.

A modern EPA rated woodstove is my primary heat source and I'll use about 3 cords in an average winter. And it works just fine during a blizzard or power outage.

I have oil as backup and last year my total heating costs were under $400.

But the best thing about the woodstove is that sometimes that fire is a lot more entertaining than what's on TV today!

I am trying to get my chimney built this year for just that reason.

christopherh, I agree with about TV. I canceled my cable TV and my land line phone last year and saved over $100. a month. I have bought a few movies and some series with the money I save and no commercials. LOL

I have books, movies and music, what else does anyone need....well maybe the PC.
