Some of us fight never-ending battles with ourselves. It could be a fight to prove that you have confidence, or a battle where you’re constantly trying to get in better shape. I know how that feels first-hand, however right now I’m dealing with a weird war of attrition – this one is with our furnace! The electric oil furnace that came with our home has proven to be a massive source of frustration for me, & every Winter season I have to prepare myself for the struggle. For 5 years, I’ve sat through various months of the oil furnace turning on only when I don’t need it, & being stuck in a cycle that our temperature control won’t stop! The only way I can get the oil furnace to stop running is to break power to the device via the circuit breaker box, which is honestly not safe. This past year, I finally l received 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 section furnace for our house. The section furnace worked quite well to keep me moderate when I used it in our kitchen or in the kitchen, & it used a little over one-ninth of the electricity that our oil furnace would use! Using that little portable section furnace made for the first Winter season in 5 years where I wasn’t constantly sleeping in the cold. I couldn’t tell you how nice it was to wake up in the day & not assume our teeth chattering! I think I might just stick to the portable section furnaces, & forgo the electric oil furnace altogether for next Winter season.
