A half cord of firewood for $150 will heat my house for a full year. I like to heat with wood because it isn’t a fossil fuel and doesn’t add to the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. My wood stove is EPA approved.
I’ve been experimenting with the new FlirOne IR camera module for my iPhone 6 plus. It is actually extremely useful for scanning a room for hot and cold spots; for example, I never realized my DVD player is always on and radiating heat. I also see where my fridge is not so well insulated (no wonder it’s running practically all the time). Click on the image to view the gallery.
