Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
Fuel oil prices have been very volatile over the past few years. The price of electricity has increased dramatically for some areas recently and it will increase for many other areas in the near future. LP gas or Propane has jumped around with the changes in the oil pricing. The prices of natural gas have been fairly stable recently, but as fuel oil and electricity rise in cost the natural gas prices will follow as more and more large use customers convert to it to save money.
Even though the costs of many other home heating fuels has continued to rise the price of wood has stayed the same or even become lower. If you have easy access to this cheap fuel then you may want to consider burning wood as the way to heat your home.
The one fuel that has remained stable or dropped in price has been firewood. Because of the slowdown in the housing market many loggers that have been very busy for years cutting for lumber mills, now have time on their hands and are cutting firewood for some side money to survive and to just stay busy. Many timber stands that were under contract to be harvested are still standing because they are not worth cutting. All this means that if you are thinking about burning wood to heat your home, then now is the time to do it.
Check out the many possibilities that are available to use to heat your home comfortably and effectively. There are many ways that you can use to burn wood and heat easily and efficiently. Each home and situation is different. Make sure that you get the right wood burning appliance for your home.
