We moved to a new homestead in NE Ohio in August, and are slowly making improvements to the property for self-sufficiency. We're currently looking at options to add wood heating to the house, as currently, we only have electric heating and want an alternative form of heat for the eventual snow storms and possible power outages. There's no natural gas run to the property, nor are there any existing gas lines to the house that would allow us to use a propane tank. Previous owners had a wood stove removed from the house and walled in the old chimney, so we're looking at having that chimney access restored and putting in a new wood stove. What are the best options for small-scale, temporary heating while we're working on getting wood heat? I've looked at kerosene heaters, but the house is REALLY air-tight, so I'm not sure that's the best option.
