    17 bags so far here in North Western Connecticut. Still burning oil in my second zone due to my single floor layout. Waiting for a back-orderd programmable thermostat from my dealer which I'm sure will slow pellet my consumption. Thermostat has been sitting at 70 since the install.

    38 bags, was a learning curve for me. Testing a few different brands of pellets and varied settings. Yes, we ran the house too warm. Glad it wasn't from oil!. Heating two levels with a total of 2160 sg ft.

    15 so far in Southern NH. It has gotten fairly cold at times. I have to say that I'm enjoying knowing how many bags I have left at the end of each week. No more wondering how much propane they'll be dropping off.

    Maybe only 6-7 bags so far and mainly cause it`s a new thing.
    The sobering fact is that using my 85% efficient oil furnace presently at -$3 a gal which is approx equal to my $300 per ton pellets. The central oil heat is far more quicker , even (comfortable) heat to *all* areas of the house , for the same cost and is so much quieter than the pellet space heater is. And it`s absolutley no bother at all.
    I`ll put up with the pellets when it gets colder. I got 4 tons to burn and it will be nice supplemental heat come the winter.

    1/2 a bag so far. Still running on the heat pump, but not even that has been running with temps in the 60's lately. If things don't turn around soon, I'm going to take the savings from not running the stove and pay to have some snow shipped in.
