Well, actually, Bacia, it's AIR CONDITIONING, not heat,
that is the big gobbler of electricity. My house is, except
for some bathroom vent/heaters, entirely heated with
wood and electric bills are lower in the winter.
Now, my wood supply would be another story, and I
frankly can't imagine cutting, splitting, and stacking
enough wood to get me through a winter in International
Falls, Minnesota. It sounds like a full-time job and I
might have to retire from pottery.
