Hi everyone, Thanks in advance for any assistance. I had a Hampton GC60 installed this summer to wean us off of oil heat (actually, trying to make a clean break). We have a 4BR twin home about 2,000 sq. ft, with stacked floors around a central staircase. It's supposed to get colder this week (thought not really cold), so I want to get a bit ahead of things. After disliking the big box pellets I tried first, I sought out Hamer's which I like much better, and bought my first ton. But reading reviews, I'm extremely curious to try softwoods - Spruce Pointe, Vermont, Okanagan, any of the top varieties really. But I can't find them anywhere around here. In fact I can't find any softwoods at all. I've heard rumors of an Energex softwood, but so far no can find. what's he Southern-most point I can find a softwood? Is it just too costly to have a couple of tons of ultra grade softwoods shipped from NY? Will anyone do it? Any tips for best operation or things to look out for about my stove greatly appreciated as well.
