Rule # 1 People will buy anything they think will save them money. Tell a lot of nice things about it,true or not ,wrap it up pretty and charge enough so they think its worth a lot and you got a sale.
It is curious Amish would make a heater that is electric being they dont use power from the wires strung up all over :roll:

I have some Amish friends & the big thing with them is no electricity. If a Amish buys what they consider an English house they will go so far as to rip out the wires in the house. I never asked one what the major evil was, they will use batterys. I was in one of their wood working shops & all the motors were removed from the equipment and they used a belt drive system run off a diesel engine. Kind of what the early american textile industry used except water powered. But electric is a big no-no, so I`d say the whole thing is staged.

"Why don't the Amish use electricity?"

"Amish people interpret linking with electrical wires as a connection with the world - and the Bible tells them they are not to be "conformed to the world." (Romans 12:2) In 1919 the Amish leaders agreed that connecting to power lines would not be in the best interest of the Amish community. They did not make this decision because they thought electricity was evil in itself, but because easy access to it could lead to many temptations and the deterioration of church and family life.

Most of us today would think it impossible to live without the modern conveniences such as electricity and cars. What makes the Old Order Amish unique is not that they get along without modernity, but that they choose to do without it when it would be readily available. The Amish value simplicity and self-denial over comfort, convenience and leisure. Their lifestyle is a deliberate way of separating from the world and maintaining self-sufficiency. (Amish are less threatened by power shortages caused by storm, disaster, or war.) As a result there is a bonding that unites the Amish community and protects it from outside influences such as television, radios, and other influences."

I have heard, "That the Amish farmers are the only farmers, who operate 'in the green'" :!:

I would guess, that the economy and oil prices mean little to them

Definition of Cured Copper--Copper that has been softened and shaped like a penis and comes from Intercourse, PA in the heart of Amish country. It is then installed in the Amish Surge Heater with a Genuine Imitation Amish Made in China Mantle. It is then sold to many people looking for the ultimate bargain.

Actualy my amish carpenter states the parts are from china and the amish put them together, we live in NE ohio and a friend bought one and said it cost her about $60 a month this last winter and it heated her 1500 sq foot home, very comfortably, I would like to know if there is a comparable furnace that is cheaper- I do not know how it works

Look no further as you've come to the right place. The electric for that unit will cost you about $30 per million BTU, coal will cost you about $8 at it's lowest cost or $16 at $320....

I live in a 1000 sq ft. condo. I never get enough heat, so I suppliment it with a Amish Type heater from Home Depot [$89 on sale]. Max output is 1500 watts. It barely does the job. My benefit is that I do not pay for electricity. I have not found the wattage output for the Amish heater. "If it sounds too good to be true, it probalbly is"
