This is an all electric house as exists in France too unfortunately.

monthly bill of € 193 with combination meters more than € 2300 Budget heating all year ... to nuclear power.

First purchase in order to lower the EdF bill: a good wood stove paid € 1500 September 2004.

During the winter 2004-2005 we consumed 10 400 cubic meters is about € at the time (since prices have flamed, as if the loggers were taken for oil sheikhs ... well ...).

First effect on the invoice: decreased Edf monthly bill in January 2005, 140 € reduced to bi-hourly.

annual gain of wood heating: approximately € 300.
