Wow, Don: A man after my own heart - heating redundancy! Do you live rural or will they let all that stuff burn in a NH city? And, 2 CLEAN burning pellet stoves. Nothin' burns cleaner than a pellet stove, according to web propaganda. But TWO pellet stoves with 3 tons of pellets for the winter! I'm on my 6th heating season with my original order of 3 tons of anthracite for my basement wood/coal burner (above). You're probly close to the cost of a masonry heater with those 3 stoves. Ever price it out? Is maintenance on those pellet stoves a headache? Aye, Marty Grandpa used to say, "It's better to have 2 of #1s, than 1 of #2s."
