    I live in a part of California that produces lots of olives. My land has oaks. I want to heat a 1500 sf well-insulated one-story house with a stove that can use the pits and pellets. What's the best? It seems almost no stove can also use my oak wood. Is that correct? What other questions should I be asking as someone new to stoves.

    What do you have the most of, pits or oak wood? If it's wood then get a decent wood stove. You can burn the pits together with the wood or in a stainless pellet basket. If you want convenience then get a pellet stove. That will leave you with the pits and the oak wood, but it will burn the pellets with just a filling a day and most can be set up to work off a thermostat.
