Winter Warmth


Today I am sitting inside, watching the snow fall. We don’t usually get much snow, so a foot of snow is quite a treat. The snow is falling in big fat flakes, and outside, everything is covered in icy white cold. But inside I am nice and warm. Staying warm on cold days like today can get expensive. One of my favorite ways to save money on winter heating bills is by using “zone heating”. With zone heating, instead of heating the whole house, you only heat the rooms you will be using. So during the day we heat the living room and kitchen. In the evening we heat the bedrooms. That way we are not spending money on heating rooms that no one is using.

For effective zone heating we make good use of room heaters. A good source for attractive room heaters is They have a large supply of vent free, gas propane heaters. The room heaters come in a variety of styles, including wall mount, freestanding, stove, and fireplace models. You can find room heaters that run on natural gas, propane, and even electricity.  My favorites are the fireplace heaters.  You can have the warmth of a wood fireplace, with clean and safe propane or  natural gas.

The snow is still falling. Time for a cup of cocoa, a good book, and a nice warm fire!
