Hello All, I just recently bought myself a mobile home. It has forced warm air electric heat. I really don't want to have to heat with that. So I have been looking into alternatives. I have been thinking about either a pellet or a coal stove. Went to a local dealer today and talked to them. After some research on the internets I have a few questions that I am hoping some people here can help me with. The first is storage. I do not have an outdoor shed or garage, so if I store outside it would be on the ground. According to the dealer it shouldn't be a problem as long as they are covered. From what I can tell that seems to be some what true. Does anybody have any real world experience with storing them outside not under any kind of protection? Or what if I stored them underneath the house on the cement pad? It does get wet under there and I am not sure what the snow what do either. If I put them on the pad then it would have to be just bags on the cement. There is no real room to get them off the ground and stack more then one bag. The other question is price. From what I can see 1 ton of hardwood pellets runs around $250ish. Now if I enter that into some cost comparisons per million BTU it comes out to be around $20. With a coal system it would be around $10 per million BTU. Do you have any opinions on this? Is the cost difference going to be really apparent? I think I am more concerned with the storage of pellets rather than the price but I am trying to think in the long term. Thanks for all of the help.
