Heating with WoodSubmitted by Samuel Howell Jr. on Wed, 01/26/2011 - 14:38
So, we have electric heat and, of course, the winter time bills are outrageous. The biggest bill we had last year, heating 2100 sq/ft, was $730 for January.
Well, this past December I installed a Hampton HI300 wood burning stove insert in the living room fireplace. Since then we have gone from 5,188 kWH last January to 2,886 kWH this January. The bill was still for $434, but with the recent increase in electric costs, this bill would have been closer to $800. We only use the heat at night as supplement.
So, I was just curious if there was anyone else in the DP family that is heating with wood?
Edit: What kind of stove are you burning?
