This morning I was busy running around the house doing chores and answering phone calls and failed to keep an eye on the pellet stove. Once I checked on it, I realized it had shut down due to being out of pellets, and the house seemed very cold indeed. It was 64 degrees, but I usually try and heat it to at least 69 degrees in daytime so when we come home from work it's still got some warmth in it.
So I turned on the HVAC, which heats the whole house using extremely expensive propane. It's now warm and toasty. A luxury I don't indulge in often, and therefore greatly appreciated. A heater which heats every room in the house, closets, and bathrooms, at the same time! I used to take that for granted.
So nice to have a really warm house, but we won't do this every day. As I said, propane is expensive and although having constant temperatures throughout our living spaces is lovely, it's not really worth going broke over lol.
