In their bedroom, they have another electric heater and kerosene heater.
I really don’t know why they won’t just fix their furnace. Don’t they know that fixing their furnace would be so much easier than trying to live with all of these random space heaters around their house? My parents haven’t had a working furnace in their house for nearly 5 years. When they told me that they didn’t have a working furnace, I nearly died. I couldn’t believe that someone could live without a working heating system for as long as they had. I asked them what they used to heat their house, and they gave me a very detailed and complicated description of the multiple heating systems that they use to keep their house warm. They use a collection of nearly a dozen different space heaters to keep their house warm. In the living room, they have an electric heater, a kerosene heater, and a propane heater to keep their room warm. They start by turning all of the heating systems when they wake up. Once the room gets warm enough, they keep only the electric space heater and the kerosene heater one. In their bedroom, they have another electric heater and kerosene heater. In the kitchen, they have a kerosene heater, and in the bathroom, they have an electric space heater. They told me that although they cannot afford to fix their furnace, they can afford to use these spaces heaters. However, if you do the math, they are paying a fortune to use all of these space heaters. It is no wonder that they cannot afford to fix their furnace.
