Spazz knows heating and cooling, oil burners suck! Right?
Oil and propane are the two most expensive fuels you can use for heat. If you have natural gas, you can get a high efficiency gas furnace. These things have a pvc flue pipe, not metal. The flue pipe barely gets warm due to the efficiency of the heat exchanger.
But yeah, if all you can get is oil or propane? Pellets are the way to go. Heating with oil I spend around $1000 a month. Heating with the pellet stove?
A 40 lb. bag costs about $4.50 and will burn for 24 hours or more.
$1000 vs $135?
Okay, so I have to empty the ash pan every other day. Where's the problem here?
This is the one I have. It's direct vent. (no chimney) The pipe sticks outside about 2' out the wall. It's even rated for a mobile home, meaning the back and sides don't get hot. It has a convection blower that blows air through the heated pipes at the top that you see in the vent.
It will heat 2200 sq. ft.
I have a wood pellet grill.....Super sweet, Stays clean, And twenty pounds of pellets leaves a little more than a hand full of ash......I mix cherry, Hickory and apple wood pellets together....Set the computer and walk away till it's done....Don't buy one of the "Designer" Models that run into the thousands.....I bought mine at Lowes for 500 and the value is outa-sight.....Auto auger and computer controlled temps...
Best grill I've ever had.......Here's the link to Lowes....
Do you have any trouble getting pellets in summer, or do you stock up during winter?
Read your post again, Snotty.
I guess they sell all the specialty pellets in 20 lb bags.
Nope....Lowe's sells them and will have them delivered to your door.......They're just down the street from me.....Spazz no shit....This is the ultimate for outdoor grilling....It's completely contained, Has a slanted deck above the cooking element, That's the run off bucket hanging off of the left end....You just wipe it off when needed....After about twenty pounds of pellets I just lift the deck and shop-vac the ash out.....Easy-Peasy, Lemon Squeezy...........
The heater is only on a few days a year here, since it's mild winters most years, our house seems to soak up solar energy, we like it cool and don't mind bundling up inside. Even then with (I assume) inefficient electric heat pump I doubt my entire electric bill has ever been even $200/month in the winter, even when especially cold. No wonder so many people move south. $1000/mo for a long winter is a lot.
AC, 72 day 68 degree nights......Electric even in the high nineties......120.00 month
Heating gas, 78 degree constant day/night......130.00 Month
pellet stoves are great and all but can you use them to make funnel cakes or cotton candy?
I can't wait to get down south. $1000 a month for heat. Just under $6000 a year for property taxes.
Excuse me neighbor, but could I borrow a cup of vaseline?
This Okie has had enough of NY state.
We have propane at our cabin but keep it running all winter at 50 degrees so we can still go up there. Would it help to have one when we are only there 2 weekends out of the month?
