I used to cringe when family came over for Thanksgiving or Chirstmas because I could just hear the propane burner in the house's boiler roaring to keep the house at 68*. This year I may have to TURN DOWN the thermostats 'cause the house may be too warm!! WHAT A LAUGH!
We're in the process of that right now. With the coal stoker going, the oven on baking and three people in the house (my mom is visiting for the holidays), not to mention the 40 degree weather, I'm opening windows and airing out the house. The stoker hasn't done more than idle all day! I'm so happy!
Normally, I'm the guy going around and turning down the thermostat -- just imagining the oil burner firing up and cringing at the dollars going down the drain. 'Tis the season and 'tis a much better season with coal!
