My husband & I are contemplating getting a pellet stove, with the idea of cutting costs in 2010 when prices for utilities are supposed to increase dramatically. Anyway - we have a 2 story townhome that's approx. 1700 sq ft. He woud like to put the stove in the basement & hook it into our current ductwork to heat the entire house that way. Is that even possible? Has anyone ever done this? Would you reccommend doing that? I've never heard of that & he says he hasn't but was wondering if it could be done.
