    Just order 3 tons of Cleanfire Pacific for a price of $269 a ton delivered.

    Very low ash and good heat from these softwoods.

    Curious how many sq. feet do you heat, do you heat 24/7 with pellets and how many tons a year do you burn?

    A little over 1,200. I bought the house in November and it was a cold winter in Western MA. I stopped burning mid April and used I would say a little over 2 ton.

    The previous homeowner said he used 5 ton, but he had a wife and a few kids. It's just me and I'm okay with the second floor from the basement being 66-68 =)

    Wow 5 ton is alot! You could move the stove into the livingroom or where you spend the most time for better comfort, warmth and convenience..

    I think pellet stoves are much easier and cheaper to install than a woodstove.. My brother installed his and it only took a a few feet of pipe and it's small pipe (4" I think).. Just something to think about..

    Not to mention that your floors are nice and warm the way that it is and if you move it, the basement will be cold as hell. Three tons in a season is actually on the low end for the majority of my customers. If you are heating the basement and the main lebvel on three tons you are doing well.

    Not at this time Don but I did consider them at one time.. I like to keep my interests current just in case.. I have enough wood to heat my home for 3 full years..I do find pellet stoves interesting but I'm not crazy about the proprietary controls they use..I bet I could design a low cost PLC controlled stove that would be better than what's out there now.. I could probably repair them myself it's just the way they hold the average Joe hostage to exorbitant part prices..

    I agree, maintenance can be pricey, but if you do most of it yourself and shop around for parts you can save a fortune. Also some pellet stoves are less maintenance but may cost a bit more initially. So research and knowledge is good advice. I have learned so much more by working on many different brands and it is surprising what I have found to be the most reliable and durable that provide the best heat!

    If the American built pellet stove companies adapt the highly efficient gasification technology of the Paromax, Palazzetti and other european stoves, you may be in trouble CT pellet:p .... I hope your company lives long and prospers and wish you delivered to NY State:)

    I forgot to mention that 99+% of pellet stoves require power to operate plus you can't cook on a pellet stove. This was a show stopper for me. This past winter we lost power for 4 days from the blizzard that came through here and my stove was my only comfort item. This kept the house warm and I cooked on it a few times. I also considered fuel cost plus in an emergency I can gather wood easily but with pellets you have to use pellets period. This past winter I hauled 3 cords of oak and cherry from around the corner of my home and all it cost was my time, some fuel and hard work which I enjoyed.. Let's just say I respect pellet stoves as an alternative to big oil and wood goes further as you're dealing usually with a local guy on his own.. BTW do you pay tax on pellets for some reason wood is tax free still..
