Stay at Home Date Night

If you want to heat your home in the most natural, environmentally friendly way consider a top rated pellet stove. By burning pellet fuel, you are making an eco-friendly and cost effective decision that’s good for your wallet and the environment: we can’t think of better causes. A pellet stove is a new acquisition in our home, hence the mention of it in this blog. We had been over to a friend’s home and they had their pellet stove in operation and we loved the ambiance it created not to mention the warmth. It was a cold winter’s night and it sure beat messing around getting a wood fire going in the fireplace. It was fast and effective. To us, you can’t beat it as a source of a fire. It was very relaxing. So much so that we decided that for our “date night,” after Mary was asleep, we would turn it on. It was phenomenal.

The pellet stove comes in many models. Some stand on feet, some have a pedestal base. They can run from one to three thousand dollars, but a modest one should do fine. As the company Harman states it, a pellet stove is built to a standard, not to a price. Needless to say, we didn’t spend the maximum. Here’s what we got:

  • Heats up to 2200 sq. feet
  • 200 CFM blower spreads heat evenly
  • Automatic igniter
  • LED display with thermostat
  • Adjustable air intake

The pellet stove has an old-world appearance and if this is the type of décor you prefer, you can’t go wrong. They can be moved to any room of the house but you most likely would want it in the rec room or basement. Any place you want to make cozy is perfect. When relaxation is a must—who doesn’t have a stressful life—you have to make time for yourself and your spouse or partner. Date night doesn’t have to be a frenzy of dinner and a movie and rush home to put the kid to sleep. You can stay right in the bosom of your own home and enjoy the warmth of a fire. Visually, it is also hypnotic and very relaxing. It is a time for the two of you to talk, share your day, reminisce, and plan for the future. Most of us do not take a moment or two to engage one another. We are used to the same old situation. A fire puts you in an altered state of consciousness in a way that can’t be beat. You can precede your fireside chat with a walk and/or a meal at home. There is nothing that says home more than a cozy fire. Mary, of course, was fast asleep and we were worried that our oohs and aahs at the beauty of the fire would wake her. I think she would have enjoyed it herself in any case. We should consider including her at least once or twice in the future.
