Last week we had a thread about how much money people save with stoves over furnaces. I think this information needs to go into the Wiki, but to do that, we need real data. Since I have not been able to find anything on the internet, I would ask members to post the numbers from their own experiences. what i need is: 1) how many BTUs of coal/wood/pellets did you use in your stove last year to heat your house. 2) how many BTUs of oil/gas/LP did you use in your central heat furnace previously 3) how does the central heat distrubute the heat? (ie gravity feed hot water, forced hot air, steam, etc) 4) are the central heat radiators / vents located next to exterior walls? 5) how well insulated is your basement?
