“Amish Heaters”: Hogwash in a box


Mike’s mentioned those “Amish Heaters” lately. Here’s a video clip from a few years back from Consumers Reports, an unbiased source. Nothing wrong with these heaters per se, but you have to read pretty carefully not to be mislead.  I do have to say they are awfully expensive for what they do.  You might be better off with a $20 dollar electric space heater.  As the video points out, you won’t save any money unless you turn the heat down in the rest of the house.  Hmmm, sounds uncomfortable.
