I started my search process on New Year's Day 2006 after a nice walk through my woods, contemplating the $325 gas bill we got a few days earlier. Hearth.com and woodheat.org moved me along the road toward getting the Vista. Although we only had a few weeks of using it last spring, we're looking forward to a nice, warm house this winter. All the neat stuff I've learned here makes me feel more confident that we did the right thing. My wood is all stacked in full sun on my side yard, and every time I pass it, it makes me feel pretty good.
