Every winter I vacation to my family’s cabin near a lovely lake. It’s an annual tradition that I really look ahead to. The cabin really has some wonderful views, and it is extremely cozy. The only difficult part about staying there is that it does not have a regular HVAC system. It has a fireplace to make sure the the entire cabin stays warm. As someone who is used to having the capability to adjust the heater from your heating and cooling thermostat, this is always a pretty difficult thing to get used to. To keep the fireplace jogging during the really cold nights, I really need to get up every so often and throw new logs on it. I also have to make certain there is always enough firewood out with the yard. I will usually spend about 40 minutes to the hour each day chopping wood so that there are always enough to keep the fireplace running at full crank. Keeping the fireplace operating is a real chore, but it is in addition quite charming. I enjoy sitting next to the fire and swapping stories with my loved ones each evening. I really don’t believe that our trip to the cabin may be quite the same without the idea. Although it would be much easier to possess a regular heating and cooling system installed in my place, there’s something I really love about this fireplace. At this point, I do not think I would have a regular furnace installed even if I could. The rustic field at the cabin emits is something that I don’t get to experience every day, so it makes the trip a little more enjoyable than it would if we used a standard heater.
