The yotul gas stoves saved us

When they built my house the builder skimped on the insulation in the soffit above the kitchen cabinets. There wasnít any. The kitchen was always cold, the dishes freezing. The Mrs had pneumonia some years ago. So when we moved in and discovered that cold it concerned me. Thus I added the big Yotul Gas stove in the back of the house. It worked, it stayed comfy back there. Later noises from a bird in our stove vent had me open soffits and discover the missing insulation and I replaced it. Over time i adopted that back room as TV viewing room. The Mrs and kids took over the living room up from. I felt a guilty hogging the stove so i bought them a small yotul (at a super discount) just for that room.

I have the furnace set to come on at 5:30AM so my daughter doesnít get up t a 58 degree bathroom. The other day I realized I hadnít felt the heat come on for a while. I thought it was the polar vortex. I discovered this morning that the furnace isnít working. I donít believe its worked in weeks. Iíve called for service and they are supposed to come this afternoon. It appears those stoves saved us from a disaster. Itís snowing and 17 degrees out there now .. We are having a heat wave.. 59 degrees next week? Crazy.

The truth is if it wasnít for DD we wouldnít have noticed.

rayinpenn,
I thought Yotul only made wood stoves. What is the model of your gas stove?
I'm considering heating options for my silly old cabin.
Thanks, JP
