As some of you may recall, a couple of months ago the Jacksonville Electric Authority got on my very last reserve nerve. The cost of my utilities was through the roof after the beginning of Hurricane Season and I could no longer afford their products. Because of the callous attitude of their customer service representatives I disconnected myself from their grid by means of the main breaker in my power panel. I soon learned that I wasn’t dedicated enough to do without hot showers, so I turned the power back on and began using it very sparingly.
I immediately sought out and purchased an alternate heating source. I found what I was looking for at Home Depot. I purchased a Dura Heat Kerosene Heater for $129.00 . Thus far I have saved nearly One Thousand Dollars in Electric Utility Cost and the cost of fuel for a week of heat is Fifteen Dollars. I expect that savings to double before the end of cold weather.
This heater has been one heck of an economic survival tool for me, but for people in areas of the country that are subject to severe Winter storms that can disrupt electrical power it can be a life saver. My heater is able to hold the interior of my three bedroom house at Seventy Degrees when the outside temperature is at freezing. A single tank of fuel (slightly more than One and a Half Gallons) will last Twelve Hours of continuous use. It even has an electronic ignition so I don’t have to waste matches. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to save money during cold weather months while insuring the safety and comfort of their home. It can save your wallet and perhaps your life.
