Back in early December we had an ice storm that took out our power. There are times when being without power isn’t a bad thing. Unfortunately, the early part of December is not one of those times. It got cold. Really cold. That I can’t pile on too many blankets to get warm kind of cold.
Those in our family with fireplaces faired better than we did. Did I mention that it was cold? So I got looking around for a way to not have that happen again. Our house is electric, and to put in another electric heater would mean running another line to a new breaker. Way too much time, effort, and cash to do that. Then we looked at gas fireplaces. That sounds like a better idea.
And the way we are going to go.
