While the boys in OPEC are giving Dick Cheney a priapism with talk of oil prices reaching $200/barrel soon, I’m bailing on their little pyramid scheme and going wood. Pellets or regular wood, haven’t decided yet. Wood is cheaper and easier to source, pellets are neat and clean but have to be processed and the price is determined by a non-transparent market.
Here are a couple of great resources I’ve come across in my travels, deserving of a link:
Wood Pellet Info (with a very neat heating cost comparison tool)
And my future supplier of an insert: Home Comfort Warehouse in Sharon, VT — great service.
