I heat the house here in Vermont with a wood stove at one end, and a wood pellet fireplace insert in the other. It saves me quite a bit, and the wood stove at least uses wood mostly from our own woods. As for the pellets, I’d rather pay Canadian lumbermen than Arabs.

My son-in-law built a house nearby. He heats it with a wood stove, but he uses a propane heater for the hot water. It has one of those outside vents, and uses very little fuel.

We live too far out to ship in pellets but I’ve had friends back East talk about them (we live where the Yukon comes into Alaska from Canada) but I have over 25 cord stacked and covered, so minus 65 come on. Actually, I go out behind our place a few miles every day it’s above minus 10 and bring back a sled load with skandic; about 5 nice birch trees.
