I have to confess that I am feeling much better since we quit using the fireplace
For the last several years, we had been using portable humidifiers all Wintertide long. All of us have a fireplace that works attractively for heating the house. The problem was that a fireplace pulls all the moisture out of the air. All of us had to have humidifiers to put the moisture back in the air. My partner started tiring of trudging down the stairs into the basement. He would carry the water back up the basement stairs plus up the steps to the cabin landing, where he filled the humidifier. He followed this routine several times a day for at least more than three weeks a year. I understood how tired he was of this routine, but he took a absolutely expensive route. He called the Heating plus A/C supplier plus told them he needed a humidifier that would run with the gas furnace. I had to confess that the humidifier worked well, plus I was no longer itchy all the time. I just couldn’t figure out why he had done such a rash move. When he finally fessed up, he told me that he figured out how several times he had climbed the stairs over the last several years. He figured how several gallons of water he had carried. He also figured out how much wood he had split plus carried for the fireplace. He thought that a current gas furnace that had a humidifier attached was better for both of us. I have to confess that I am feeling much better since we quit using the fireplace. I don’t suffer from asthma plus pollen irritations all winter. He made a great decision with the gas furnace plus humidifier.
