some wood heat wisdom

One of the things we sold last summer out of our brother's storage locker was a really good burn all night heat a huge amount of space cast iron stove and once in a while, as oil heating has been astronomical this winter, I wish we hadn't. Our main living room fireplace also has a broken flue and I have always feared that they would have to dismantle the stone chimney to fix it... so I haven't. But maybe I should get an estimate, it might actually pay for itself.
anyway here's some burning wood wisdom or info anyhow

I've been thinking about this a lot lately too. Beyond the cost of heating (gas for me, but it still applies), it just seems like it's a good idea to have some flexibility. I thought about it again when the pipeline exploded in Canada and so many people were without fuel for some really cold arctic weather.

My current options are electric and gas, there's no fireplace in my home. I think I want that to change. At the very least (assuming I don't move), I want to finish off the back porch and have a wood stove out there. We'll see. :-)

The men who came to survey our property for the flood insurance said they have a pellet stove. Never heard of one before.

Huh, interesting! I hadn't heard of them either, but the description at the Home Depot site is pretty complete. Interesting....
