Pellets used to run around $200 a ton here last I looked, but that was a few years ago. What are they up to now?
I have access to free firewood, but cutting, hauling and splitting it is getting to be more of a chore as I get older. Neighbors ditched their wood burner several years ago for a pellet stove and seem happy. Looks like they do at two or three skids per year.
Main reason I haven't tumbled for a pellet stove yet, is the cost. Think she said the one they got cost over two grand. I've been using the same wood stove we paid $200 for, 25 years ago. Double door Schrader, takes up to 30" firewood. Barely used at the time we bought it and in mint condition. It will also burn coal, but haven't done that in years.
