    I grew up with a fireplace and the pellet stove brings back the flame effect along with clean economical heat. When the power is out we can run the pellet stoves on a UPS until I fire the generator up as they use very little power. We have 90+ percent natural gas forced air heaters but run our pellet stoves mostly. As far as cost to heat it's probably a toss-up between the two but for some reason we use the pellets most of the time..

    I like that we can actually afford to be warm this winter (over our oil heat).
    I like the flame & heat to get dressed in front of.

    The looks. The efficiency. Using 4-5 ton ($1,000) instead of $4,000 a yr on LP. I think thats the biggest thing I like. The $3,000 in my pocket.

    That says it for me too. Plus I just love sitting and watching it burn on a cold winter evening.

    I had an coal fired Alaska stoker stove for many years and liked it, but once you started it in fall it was on till spring!
    Pellet stove is off many times all day in spring and fall saving alot of time and money.

    Was a great deal, clean energy, low oil consumption, much safer than a wood stove, and very easy to heat the house.

    Clean lines and european look without the price. Quiet operation and reliability (4th burning season and no issues whatsoever). Very easy to clean and maintain.

    Love the look and flame of the wood pellet stove and getting off the oil/crack addiction. Besides, I like playing the pellet game all year. Trying different brands and seeing how much I can stock pile in my garage. Plus, I get to keep the house toasty warm and not worry about the oil gauge dropping like a rock.
