The luxury of an electric pump

Nebie (39) lives upstairs in the same house as Nefie (her mother-in-law), with the same traditional wood stove for heating. The addition of an electric pump that pushes heated water through pipes and radiators makes Nebie’s space far more comfortable and more efficient. Still it consumes about 20 m3 of wood each winter.
