I went with pellets because I wanted to be warm. My wife would set the t-stat @ 65F when I was on the road and sit and freeze. I'd come home and turn it up to 74... i was a trucker for the better part of 41 years and I slept in a freezing cold truck six nights per week because I couldn't afford to idle and stay warm... when I got home I wanted to be warm. Now I heat this old barn with 2 1/2 - 3 tons of pellets every winter with the living room at 76F and the upstairs at 68-70F. I could care less about being "green"... I just want heat.
