How can I heat the house if the electricity goes out?
We’re under a blizzard watch with forecasts calling for over 30 inches of snow and hurricane force winds here in Boston Friday night and into Saturday. Obviously, with weather like that, power outages will be widespread.
We have a gas-fired boiler in the basement and the heat is distributed by a convection flow radiator system. The ignition is electric, and the thermostat needs power. A tiny motor/generator kit running in the basement with proper exhaust venting to the outside should be all it takes to keep that running. Any better ideas?
