I just started up the Hitzer this morning since its got cold again, and then started washing a load of my sweatpants and shirts. I was remembering my dad telling me my granddad would have to undress outside after a days work down in the PA mines and
I went out and picked up a folding clothes drying rack. I put the rack a few feet away from the fireplace insert with the clothes hanging on it. Within an hour the house was "downy fresh" smelling, and after 6 hours the heavy sweats were completely dry. So besides saving oil and now I can save a some kwatt hours during the winter months and add some moisture into the air. I got an idea my dad and granddad would be saying "what took ya so long to figure this one out?"
