    So as I posted before, I scored 2 tons of Somersets and was happily burning them. They seemed to burn well but they also seemed to leave a lot of ash and made the glass pretty messy. But ash and messy glass I can deal with as long as the heat output is good. Then I came across a very local place to me which carries Hamers Hot ones and I decided to buy 10 bags to try. Although they seemed to burn a little quicker they alo seemed to throw a lot more heat with a lot less ash and left the glass clean. Could this just be a rare few bags or is the difference that big? With the Somersets the house was constant 74 downstairs 73 up. Hamers I turned it off when the downstairs was at 80 and the upstairs at 78. Felt like summer!

    I burned almost 2 tons of Hamers last year with great results but around here they go for $295/ton. I'm not surprised you like them, how much did you pay?

    I've burned some Somersets this season and really liked them, especially at 209/ton. I wish I could find more.

    Both pellets have good reputations around here. I wonder if the warmer day today is influencing the extra heat you're feeling from the Hamers?

    They were about $6.00 a bag. But by the ton they are $295 delivered or $280 3 tons or more

    I burned them yesterday right after the Somersets! But I'm switching back to sets tomorrow to see if that is the case

    By the way no disrespect to the Somersets, I still like them a lot.

    Good pellets for sure, but when you can get the Sets for about $70-80 cheaper, they are the way to go, IMO.
