Mr. Heater to the rescue again!
Once again, an ice storm moved in this week and I lost power for most of the night. It was late enough that I decided to not run the generator but the house was getting cold. So I brought out my 30,000 BTU LP portable heater, and set it on the hearth. It is ventless and has a carbon monoxide sensor but to be extra safe, I cracked open the flue. Last year, I posted about using this heater and my generator at my mother-in-law’s house. This year it was my turn. It has a thermostat and set on 2 out of 5, it kept the center of the house toasty warm and ran for about 3-4 minutes every 15 minutes. This Mr. Heater is probably the best prepper investment I’ve ever made… and I’ve made a lot. 🙂
So typical of a prepper, I had my generator ready to run if needed. I had both Humless solar generators in use. One was just running a few LED lights and recharging other lights. The other was beside my recliner, keeping my phone fully charged and powering my CPAP. I’m one of those that can not sleep without a CPAP anymore. Without it, I start snoring as soon as I fall asleep and the snoring now wakes me up. So if I’m gonna sleep, I have to power the CPAP. Having solar generators allows me to use such equipment without running the generator. I prefer to not run the generator overnight, while I’m sleeping.
