For those of you that live in a similar climate I was wondering how many tons of pellets I should be ordering since this is my first year. 1300 square foot home ranch home, built in the early 1960's. New windows and doors. Harman Accentra free standing stove. We reside in the Lehigh Valley in PA. I plan on burning 24/7 and will try to keep my home between 72 - 74 degrees during the winter months. Im not sure how much insulation is in the walls but we did add insulation to the attic a few years ago. We are only heating one floor.
