Wood vs pellet or corn....arg?
Well I'm glad I waited through last years crisis but I still seek opinions. I have a Squire wood burning insert. Wood is a bit of a mess and I'm just looking for some thoughts...its really most about the money. And the fact that my wife is tired of carrying wood in once or twice a day and shes thinking the pellets are an attractive alternativeÂ..but it canÂt end up costing us more(she does the bills to). We live in western PA in a 12 room VictorianÂ. The stove really supplements the main daily living quartersÂat night we heat stones and place them at the foot of the bed (just kidding) If I do an ROI (return on investment) it appears as though IÂm looking at 3 years payback minimum. ThatÂs assuming 300$ for a ton of corn or pelletsÂand by the way, can I store that outside without inviting the varmints? IÂve already got termitesÂperhaps I can train the varmints to root up the termitesÂ.okay IÂm off a bit here, but you get the idea. Should I pursue the change? Remove the Squire insert and replace it? And if so with what? Your opinions are highly regarded since I have read through many of your forum responses in the past. Thank you in advance!
