Re: Pellet or Wood burning stove ?

I can't help on the costs - despite having 1 house with a pellet boiler - but the tenants like it very hot so I can't give a good estimate of annual costs. Pellets are considered to be CO2 neutral as they are produced from waste material where the original process has counted for the CO2 production.

However, our main house is heated using oil, and the thermostat is set quite low. We supplement with a wood burning stove in the living room - so in the evening (around 7pm) I will light a fire. I will go through a total of 3 to 4 pieces of wood (hard fire burning wood) in an evening. When we go to bed we close off that room. It is still warm in the morning.

There are a few users on here who have houses heated by wood fired stoves - so they may provide more detailed information.
