The Southern Burner is Back at Work.

Just before New Years my gas heater stopped working. I ordered a new controller and it just arrived and has been installed. I replaced the pilot sensor at the same time so it should be good for a few more years.

I live in a state where electricity is expensive. I didn't want to really know, but I finally had to face it. When I calculate it, the power I was using came to $.50 per hour. The weather has been cold enough that it probably ran 24 hours a day. It managed to keep the greenhouse at 40f so I am hoping for limited damage.

  1. We're having the opposite affect here in central Florida. The weather has been so warm that we have plants starting early spring growth without much dormant time. Don't know how it will affect growth and blooming this year.
