Heat Without Electricity

Where the people I was with and I live, the winters can range from mild to brutal and the people I was with and I never know what to expect as the cooler weather creeps in, since the Wintertide weather is so unpredictable, we’ve had to set up our Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system to handle all conditions.

When the people I was with and I purchased this house, there was a standard Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system set up, however both the heating system and a/c ran off of electricity.

The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system was only many years ancient and it ran great. Both of us never experienced any problems with it and did an excellent task at heating and cooling our house efficiently. There was no reason to substitute the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system, but the people I was with and I did have one major concern! During the occasional Wintertide storm, our power would go out, causing our heating system to stop running. Occasionally, the power would come on within a few hours, but sometimes it would take hours. There’s nothing worse than a house without heat during a Wintertide storm. To overcome this issue, the people I was with and I decided to install a gas heating system in our bedroom. It’s mounted to the wall and runs off a propane tank at the back of our house. Using gas, we’re able to heat a small portion of our house when the electricity goes out. Over the years, we’ve used our gas heating system on many occasions and we’re typically thankful to have it. We’ve even convinced a few friends to have one installed too. It’s comforting knowing that you’ll have heat even in a awful storm that causes the electricity to go out.
