  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I been hearing about these heaters for a number of years. They supposedly run much more efficiently than other heat sources. A local shop was running a end of the season sale on the Liberty brand models at 50% off. My apartment is electric heat, so my hope is that it will save me so cash on my...

    I use fuel oil and electric heaters. I keep the thermostat set at a low temperature, and then I use electric heaters around the house as needed, so that I'm not heating the whole house up. The furnace requires a fan to blow the heat. I'm looking to add some options for heating, in case the...

    Tis the season once again to start looking for deals on fall and winter preps like thermal undies, hats, gloves, shovels, etc etc etc, blah blah blah.. Because of the most unusual freak storm we had last December (thunder & lightning followed by a massive snowstorm of Biblical proportions), i'm...

    While our preps were already at a good level and we don't ever prep for just one or two things, we did take a good look at our preps for this winter storm. The NWS is predicting over 14 to 18 inches of snow over up to 2 inches of frozen sleet on top of 1/2 to 1 inch of freezing rain that should...

    They seem to be all the rage now. I see infared heaters advertised everywhere now. Factory representatives come to small towns hawking them, truckload sales in the small town near me, "Amish built" mantles for them advertised in the local rag and displays of them in larger home improvement...

    Right now, I'm storing pellets (stove) and gas (generator) in case of a power shortage, but I've also been looking into a small catalytic heater in case we have to huddel in the bedroom. Just wondering what people here at SB have discovered about these heaters: safety, BTU output, reliability...

    Have you given any thought to how you will keep warm next winter? What if, between now and then our cities infrastructure goes to hell and your electric heat pump/gas furnace no longer functions? Do you have a back-up plan? If your back-up plan is to purchase a wood stove maybe you better...
