    After reading this forum it seems like this is really a good topic to have a poll on.

    If push comes to shove there will be a stove available somewhere in the country that can be shipped to you. Not so, at least cost effectively, four tons of pellets.

    Or the lusted for Harman XXV with chrome wheels, DVD player and wide-screen TV option can be downgraded to the stove the guy at the stove shop or the box store has in stock.

    I would have to agree and just what I am going to do. After reading all the replies by members and the comments by the admin on here I am going to pick up a cheaper Englander stove from a big chain store, first time Englanders avaliable in Canada, install in myself, save at least $1500.00. Going to rip apart my 20 x 15 Dining Room lathe and plaster walls, ceiling and take the savings and insulate it. This house was built in 1920 or so, township has no records of it being built.
    Harmon is suppose to be the class of stoves but I have read a lot good about the Englanders also so worth the shot for difference in price, if even can get one by Nov. or Dec. where as Englanders are around.
    Also I think they will be able to push out more pellets easiser and faster then they can make more stoves and stoves of somekind will be out there and pellets will show up in areas with a shortage.

    It's easier to get pellets than a stove. Supply might be tight, but they can be found.

    I am sure you will find pellet even the price is not good. But you may not get a stove if you want to buy a popular brand now. Don't worry about the pellets. Now is the peak of the demand. it will cool down after Fall, I think. We have more choice in pellets. And if the price is higher here, pellets from other states will flow in. So you will be fine in pellets.

    A pellet stove won't be needed until at least October in most parts of the country. In the NE it has been warm all of September in recent years.

    No extra charge for the termites and ants imported into your home either.
