    Last 24 hours used 70 KWH. Base line on the house is about $3.00. Add a bag and a half of pellets I'm at 10.50
    At .139 per KWH that's $9.73 and no getting the pellets and no cleaning the stove, it seems like its not worth the effort...

    I'd like to know what heat pump you have. When it gets down to the single digits outside mine can't extract enough heat from the air and ends up turning on the heat strips.

    below 25 degrees my heat pump is worthless without the heat strips kicking in.
