It’s a bit early I know, but Fall is slowly creeping upon us. Up here in Northern New England it seems that summer only lasts two months… actually, that might be more of a fact. So, anticipating fall, which leads to planning for winter, is truly a year round process.
If you read my earlier post you know that we have a large pile of freshly delivered wood sitting off the side of our driveway. I imagine at some point in time, hopefully within the next month, (hint, hint, o’ manly husband of mine) it will get stacked.
For the past three years our home has run solely on wood heat. The only exception we’ve made was this past spring. My husband was away and the chimney needed some serious cleaning. Completely lazy, and having no idea what to do, I closed up the wood stove for the season and ran the furnace for about a week.
Earlier this summer my husband and I decided to upgrade our wood stove. Our current stove runs well and has been excellent to us. However, knowing that we use this as our primary source of heat, we decided an upgrade was warranted. After weeks of research and negotiating back and forth with one another on style we made a decision. Our choice: A Harman Stove. I’ll spare you all the details of this highly reviewed stove. Bottom line, it meets the needs of our home. This means we can continue to run solely on wood heat and keep the oil in our tank as an emergency reserve.
One detail I will share is that it comes with a cooking grill attachment for the top loader. Yep, you guessed it, the good ole’ husband got his way again…
But, that’s okay, this stove was Made in the USA and that’s worth it’s weight in gold compared to a cooking grill!
Happy winter grillin’ everyone!
