Hi, I just recently purchased and had a quadrafire santa fe wood pellet insert installed in my house. I am coming from baseboard heat with a normal fireplace that would typically smoke us out of the house and/or send a flaming log rolling onto the floor. I figured a wood pellet insert would be way more efficient and cheaper (baseboards were running around $200/mo to heat my 800 Sq/ft house with the use of the fireplace on weekends). I'm hoping I can use the wood pellet insert for the majority of the time and only use the baseboards when we go away for vacation. I realize buying pellets in bulk is my best and cheapest option for fuel this winter. I have a few vendors around where I live (Annapolis Md) and am just trying to find the best pellet to use. I have narrowed it down to: Hamers Hot ones (read that the 2016/2017 quality of the pellets went down hill from previous years so I'm hesitant to buy a ton of them if they're going to be crappy) American Energex pellets and Lignetics pellets...any input on these pellets and how they run in a quadrafire santa fe will be greatly appreciated. That being said there are other brands available, so if anyone has any input on any of the following brands working well I would greatly appreciate it! The other brands are Power Pellets, Easy Heat, Turman, Golden, American Wood Fibers, Ultra, Easy Blaze, Wow/Blazer (somehow $349/ton...a good $100 more than most of the brands), Lignetics Gold, and LaCrete Sawmills.
