When I was a kid, my dad used to have a hopper that he would fill with coal. Throughout the night, the coal would slowly transfer into the gas furnace plus provide us warmth plus comfort all through the night. Both of us had a thermostat in the residing room that was far away from the door so it didn’t get any cold drafts. Both of us spent many afternoons curled up on the old sofa bed. The stairway would be blocked off with blankets to keep the heat from going up the stairs. Both of us would have long afternoons in the residing room, pretending every one of us were camping, on the afternoons when the un-even temperatures would drop below zero. Tending to that old coal gas furnace seemed easy plus although every one of us didn’t sleep upstairs in the winter, every one of us were moderate plus cozy plus every one of us regularly enjoyed the night time. Now every one of us have an oil burner plus whenever the power goes out, every one of us don’t have any heat. The gas furnace often glitches if every one of us have a power glitch plus after that every one of us need to go downstairs plus reset the gas furnace. Both of us never had that problem with the coal gas furnace. It didn’t rely on electricity to run. It was all done with enjoyable old gravity. As much as I care about the new gas furnaces plus their ability to provide enjoyable heat to every room of the house, I appreciate having heating no matter what the weather, or whether or not every one of us have electricity. If I could go back in time plus find a new coal gas furnace that worked without any needing to load coal once or twice a day, plus still ran without electricity, I would cheerfully buy one.
