Just don't get it. Why would anyone today ( at least here in New England) buy a new pellet stove, vent pipes, and pay for installation and incur a total bill of $3-5 thousand with pellets selling for $300-$400 a ton when HHO is selling for about $2.50 a gallon and Nat gas is even cheaper. I guess if you heat with electricity going the pellet route would be a bit cheaper and make sense to me, but other than that I just don't get it. I realize that just a few months ago HHO was selling at over $4 a gallon, and many of the talking heads were predicting it would go to $5.00, or higher, a gallon, and pellets were selling at $175-$225 a ton but for a number of understandable & not understandable reasons that's not reality today. The price of fossil fuels plummeted while the price of pellets and stoves (when you can get them) increased. It appears from reading this forum that there are still people willing to drive long distances, and pay unreasonable prices to heat their homes with pellets. I purchased my stove in 2004, and purchased this year's supply of pellets in April at $225 a ton delivered, and just arranged to have 200 gallons of HHO delivered. It's nice to have the option of choosing how to heat your home, but I think now is not the time to buy into this option. I don't mean to offend anyone, I'm truly glad I made my investment in a stove in 2004, and don't regret it. If the answer is you want to reduce the carbon footprint, or you would prefer not to send your $$$'s overseas I applaud you.
