    New England (MA, CT, ME, NH, VT, RI) Has anyone heard of 2019-2020 pellet shortages?

    I think he, like me, is referring to the people that 'can'... but do not. When someone comes in with a 2 year old, 3/4 ton pickup, and 4 wheel trailer, I'm thinking he can afford them in June.. Same with the people that have a 2 acre place, that I drool over.. Right now, deliveries, both in...

    Smoke smell

    Not to get into a competition about this, but I use tape all the time, and it comes right off. It sticks to itself, like shrink wrap, but does not stick to the pipe.. no cleanup. I have also tried taking pipe apart for others, with RTV, and they would not come apart without destroying the...

    Any of these pellets good?

    I do like LaCrete.. If it were the only pellet I could get, I would never complain. :) Did not use many last year, only because I tried some others. The LaCrete, often seemed like more ash, however, I always found it to be very fluffy.. meaning, to me, there was not more ash, just more volume...

    Installing pellet stove in basement

    Sure. Standard 3" pellet ... the most common. About 5' of straight, 2 - 90's. 8x8 clay liner all the way up. 6" metal thimble through wall, into the liner. Real tall! Old New Englander house... goes from basement up to beyond 3rd floor. Dan

    Installing pellet stove in basement

    That is how I did mine.. Save about 30 bucks... Goes in to the masonry chimney that I had a wood stove in for years, then a coal stove.. now pellets. Have had zero issues with any of them.. Dan

    Significant difference in heat output with different pellets

    Yeah... different regions, certainly have different materials/brands available. A lot of places around here do not even carry hardwoods.. Little demand. Dan.

    Significant difference in heat output with different pellets

    You won't find many people claiming that a hardwood pellet is hotter than a pine.. If you are on setting #1, I would bet that if you played with your air setting, you find that to be true. I have an Englander in my shop, and burn softwood only.. The hardwood/hardwood blends that I tried just...

    When do you buy your bulk pellets?

    $100 less? is that on your whole order, or one ton?? If it's one ton, your guy is charging a lot this time of year... I don't know how you can slice 100 bucks off a ton, unless the higher price is absurd.. Dan

    Vertical exhaust (vent) pipe..??

    I have an Englander in my shop that has no vertical.. It works fine. They have blowers in them.. They aren't relying on draft to run.. I agree.. if there is a power outage, you may get some smoke... fortunately, it has never been an issue here with my situation.

    North country soft wood pellets

    North Country's here are at $5 a bag.. Cheaper than Green Supremes, and in 'my' opinion, are much better... Bags are not the best, will give you that. But I don't burn the bags.... Dan

    1000sq/ft = one 50lb bag pellets per day???

    Depending on brands 1 ton 1.2 tons 1.5 tons. A waterproof container for a full pallet is going to have to be a pretty good size!! Dan
