I used to wonder why every one of us had many sources of heating in our home when I was a youngster.
That was until every one of us had a power outage while in a serious Wintertide storm.
With the power being out, the Heating, Ventilation & A/C system was no longer working, even if you had solar panels, they would be virtually useless with no sunshine, but at least you would be able to rely on your battery power reserves until they could be charged back up when the sunshine eventually came back, and unluckyly, every one of us didn’t have solar panels as well as every one of us didn’t have a backup generator either. But luckyly, every one of us did have a couple of fireplaces in the house. With a fireplace at both sides of the house, every one of us were able to keep the home nice as well as warm. The fireplace provided a satisfying glow as well as every one of us were able to use candles until the power eventually came back on. I realized that if every one of us didn’t have that fireplace, every one of us genuinely would have froze to death. With the severity of the Wintertide storm, the roads were basically impossible to drive on. Every one of us couldn’t get emergency Heating, Ventilation & A/C repair as well as every one of us couldn’t go anywhere to be warm, however all every one of us had was our home with our many sourcing of heating. Eventually when I got my own locale, I made sure to have fireplaces as well. I also made sure to have a boiler system that could really run even if the power went out. There was no way I wanted to ever be at risk of having my family freeze in the cold weather.
