Re: need some help with heat

Your air conditioning system is not designed to circulate heat from the wood stove, so it is not surprising that it does not do a good job. The air intakes may not be in the optimum place. They might be picking up the warm air that you want to circulate, or they may be picking up cooler air. You ar...

need some help with heat

So i am moving to the mountains of North Georgia. The plan was for me to get a good wood stove in the main room and run it hot and turn on the central fan (the one used for my AC).

Re: Cheap ways to fertilise

I was thinking that i could get duckweed growing in a small pool of water and just keep removing a third every time it got full. I understand that it grows very fast but dont know if it would work for fertiliser.

Wood burnning stove question

I will need to buy a wood heater very soon but the more i learn the less know what to buy. I dont know about other parts of the world but here in the USA we have a "cat" and a "non cat" stove. From what i understand the cat is the best way to go because it burns less wood and the heat last longer, b...
