    Question:

    Hi- hope you can help... Do you folks sell- (and suggest) multi-fuelstoves; that can burn wood when that is what is available- and can burn pellets when available- and can burn any other fuel? What are prices? What is efficiency with different fuels? Finally- given oil at$1.00/gal and wood at $100/cord - which turns out to be less expensive? THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP.



    Answer:

    There are multi-fuel furnaces that can burn oil/wood or coal. There are also stoves that can burn both coal and wood..none can burn Pellets and Wood or oil. A cord of good oak burned in an efficient stove can equal 150-175 gallons of oil.<p>
    See links below for one multi-fuel central heater and also a calculator to compare fuel costs.
