So... I’ve been thinking on why I heat with wood, is it for the money saved and if I really do save at all or is it for the ambience of the soothing fire? I thought about the thousands I’ve spent on three pro saws that all have been wood ported and the big wood splitter, numerous racks, the not so fancy Drolet stove and the stove and chimney pipes, and soon the $3000 30X24 car port I’ll build to keep my wood stores dry. Plus all kinds of wood handling tools and can as tarps to cover the wood. Up here propane is cheap, the summer fill price has been under a buck since the winter of the big LP shortage (when I did save a bunch by burning wood) and just a bit more during the winter months. Even though most of my wood has been scrounged in our vast hardwood forests here I still think I would have spent less if I just set the thermostat on the drafty furnace and just heated the place like I did for decades when I lived in the suburbs of St Paul Minnesota. One thing I thought of though was the saws and the splitter and all are tangible things I can have and take care of instead of just paying the LP co for gas that I’ll get nothing but boring heat from. I’m sure you get what I’m saying, chime in with your thoughts. cheers!
