The propane heaters heat up the house very quickly, and once the room feels toasty, they turn the propane heaters off and leave the other heaters on.
I can’t believe the financial mess that my parents have found themselves in. Now, when I was a kid, my parents definitely struggled to provide for my family. We have lived in some pretty rough houses, but never as rough as the house that my parents are living in now. I just found out that my parents don’t even have a furnace in their house. When they showed up at their house, there was no electricity, no furnace, no running water, etc. The only thing that has changed is that they have electricity in most of the rooms now. But I just don’t understand how they live without a furnace. I may be poor, but even I have a working furnace in my house that I keep in good condition. In fact, I make less money than my parents do, and they still aren’t able to afford a furnace for their house. When I went to their house recently, I learned how they stay warm during the winter. They have a huge collection of electric space heaters, propane heaters, and kerosene heaters. Early in the morning, my parents turn on all of their space heaters at once. The propane heaters heat up the house very quickly, and once the room feels toasty, they turn the propane heaters off and leave the other heaters on. They also have a small space heater in the bathroom and kitchen. During the night, they only leave one kerosine heater on in their bedroom. They are spending a fortune on space heaters and the fuel for those heaters. I know that they would save a lot of money if they just bought a furnace.
