My next door neighbor sure seems to need a lot of help their heater. They keep coming over to our house because their house is freezing. It's kind of funny, we've never had so many people over at our house. Thank goodness for a great heater! They've been looking at this site: http://www.wightmanmechanical.com/ , what do you think?

Not enough information provided to make an educated guess. Is your heating system electric, gas, or some other energy? is it forced air, convection, baseboard, etc? The bottom line is, the home owner is responsible for his/her heating system unless you hire a company to maintain your home heating.

No trouble at all with my home heating system.
It's very low-tech and requires little to no maintenance. I put in wood, oak, cedar, manzanita logs or any tree trimmings and wood scrap. Then just light up the fire.
Depending on the temperature I add more or less wood to the fire box to keep the house comfortable.
It's cheap and requires no outside power source bills.
PLUS, when the utilities go out in a storm, my wood stove just keeps on working.
Very good stuff, others should try it.

Of course, please send me an E-Mail when your house burns down from all the crap you're putting in your wood stove.

CRAP!?! That's called wood, woodenhead.
It's the original renewable fuel, time tested.
Been heated by fire for more than thirty years and I ain't burned yet.

The stove is metal, bricklined and the triple wall flue gets cleaned regularly.
Get actively involved with your life and you won't fear fire so much.
Even the aborigines learned to control fire over 40,000 years ago.

Catch up man, evolve while you still have the chance.

"Crap"? I understand that people get tired of paying high electric bills, so what do they do? go out and buy a wood stove. Brill! You'll pay at least $1500+ for a good wood stove, WAIT! you need a chimney or flue to remove the gasses from the wood stove, at least another $5000. Now what? OH!!!! you need wood!! Shop around, you'll pay at least $120/ cord for seasond firewood, usually fir or pine, it burns hot so the "experts" tell you to damper it down. Great advice!--NOT! now the chimney flue gets coated with unburned wood tar (creasote) and the house burns down.

So, tell me, who needs to "catch up"?

You city slickers sure get brainwashed by consumer propaganda and fear.
My stove and flue cost less than $900 installed and there's plenty of dead wood on my ranch to supply the fuel.
Break out of the box of commercial consumerism syndrome and become independent.

ps: dragging some manzanita brush sticks tied to a rope up and down the cold flue once a year or so removes the creosote.
SO does a cup of Red Devil lye on a hot fire.
Live a little and learn.

This will be my last post to you on this subject.

"city slickers"? FYI, I have lived in the country since 1973, I have harvested my own firewood from my own property every year. I've got a pretty good idea of what kind of wood provides the best heat and burns safely.

Well if you're afraid of woodstoves, what in the heck do you burn your firewood in?
A brazier in the middle of your front room floor? LOL!
