Tennessee is just one of those states that always has crazy temperature spikes. One day the low is 28 degrees and the next you wake up to a pleasant, yet unexpected surprise of a 65-degree day and cloudless skies. It can be quite confusing as to what to leave your heat on during the day while you are working. You definitely don’t want to come home to an ice-cold home that takes hours to warm up after a long, hard day. Then again, you don’t want to overheat the house if it does happen to be one of those spontaneous warm weather days in the middle of January. But mostly, you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg to the electric company, because it’s impossible to predict how much the temperature will rise or drop even just within working hours.

It is hard to prevent your funds disappearing to the electric company during the winter. Even you set your central heating system in the 60’s in the morning before you leave and turn it back up to a comfortable temperature in the evening when you return home. HVAC systems easily become confused and over cycle or link when the weather constantly changes like that in Tennessee. However, there are other ways to heat the house, and one in particular can save you hundreds of dollars! Not to mention this ancient method of heating is also environmentally friendly and will reduce your carbon footprint while keeping some extra change in your pocket.

All right already, what’s the big secret! Wood burners! Just think about it, your grandparent’s generation used them for all kinds of things. Not only to efficiently and very effectively heat their homes, but also to heat their water and cook their food!

Wood burners have many advantages. First, they are extremely effective in heating homes quickly. Therefore, if you are gone all day at work and can’t afford to have the heat running all day you won’t have to worry about the house being cold all night. Just throw in a few logs and start up the burner, within a half-hour the natural heat will be filling the entire home with cozy warmth. Second, all you need is a whole bunch of wood. Even if you don’t live in an area where you can go outside and chop it down yourself, all the home improvement stores sell pre chopped firewood. If you see a wood truck on the side of the road don’t forget to stop and stock up, they’ll give you a much better deal than Lowe’s or Home Depot! Third, it’s the best type of heating for the environment. Burning natural firewood is carbon neutral and doesn’t release harmful gases into the atmosphere that add to the depletion of the ozone. Finally, you don’t even have to go camping to make s’mores on a real fire! Just grab the coat hangers, plop on the marshmallows, and enjoy your favorite All American past time right from the comfort of your couch.
