    672 sqft on floor stove is on, 504 on second floor . Blown in insulation, replacement windows, house build in 1900 -1920 . I keep my living floor around 65-68 [I'm not cheap, I'm thrifty ] second floor is around 62-65 . I have alligator arms when it comes to temps in my house , lol.

    I have bought all my pellets from my local Agway the last 4 years. Most I have paid per bag is $3.90 , $3.70 this year. They tell me they are Hammer Hot ones in Agway bags.

    It will always be hard to tell how many pellets you will use because every one is differant , like I said I'm thrifty . Some one who is cold would use more.
