The next time an ice storm knocks out the power grid have a way to keep your home warm from an alternate source. Many people in colder climates already have a fireplace, wood, or pellet stove. Those who live in the warmer climate zones probably won’t have an alternate heat source. We still must be ready for any climate situation wherever we live. Climates are changing all the time.
