Just got her hooked up yesterday. I was using an 18 SEER heat pump for heat. Until yesterday, the heat pump ran constantly and I had it set to between 65 & 68 F. The kids slept in sweat shirts. Now, we sit comfortably in t-shirts with the temp. set to 73 F day and night. The heat pump is no longer used for heating. And, I can take 4 hour showers if I want and wash clothes in hot water!
Wood doesn’t need splitting…if you’re stout enough to pick it up, the wood boiler will accommodate it. My goal is to be pretty near self-sufficient with home energy. Electricity rates here are set to rise 10% January 1st. A wind mill may be my next project.
I love this thing!
