December Gas Usage

The month of December was cold in the Frozen North, and we saved about $220 on our natural gas bill through the wood burning stove.

This bill marks almost exactly two years since we got the wood stove installed, and we're closing in on paying for it through fuel savings. To date we've saved about $2,600, and kept something like 25 tons of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.

The stove is starting to show some wear, though: a piece of fiberboard in a baffle in the firebox is disintegrating, and needs to be replaced (about sixty bucks for the part, and probably ten minutes to install). This is apparently expected to need replacement from time to time, since the manufacturer excludes it from the warranty.
