Some of us confrontation never-ending battles with ourselves. It could be a confrontation to prove that you have confidence, or a battle where you’re always trying to get in better shape. I know how that feels first-hand, however right now I’m dealing with a odd war of attrition – this one is with my heating system! The electric furnace that came with my house has proven to be a massive source of frustration for me, plus every Winter I have to prepare myself for the struggle. For five years, I’ve sat through many months of the furnace turning on only when I don’t need it, plus being stuck in a cycle that my temperature control won’t stop! The only way I can get the furnace to stop running is to cut power to the device via the circuit breaker box, which is genuinely not safe. This past year, I finally l gained that the best way to outsmart your enemy is to avoid them entirely. With that in mind, I decided to invest in a single electric space furnace for my house. The space furnace worked quite well to keep me warm when I used it in my home office or in the dining room, plus it used a little over one-fifth of the electricity that my furnace would use! Using that little portable space furnace made for the first Winter in five years where I wasn’t always sleeping in the cold. I couldn’t tell you how nice it was to wake up in the morning plus not believe my teeth chattering! I suppose I might just stick to the portable space heating systems, plus forgo the electric furnace altogether for next winter.
