I am looking to install, or have installed a Harmen PF100 Pellet Furnance this fall. My main objective it to lower my heating costs.
My house is a 1800 sq ft L-Ranch 1 story with an unfinished basement. New windows and doors and appx R27-30 insulation in the attic. The house has a LP water heater, LP rheem furnance 90+% effieciency, LP dryer, LP range and LP fireplace insert. The insert rarely if ever gets used. I have a family of 4 and the house is in western mass.
We are averaging about 1200 gallons of propane per year. In the heating season, we get filled up almost every 30 days. (2 100gallon tanks, normally 150 gallons + per fill up)
Our 1st year we paid 1.99 gallon. This past year we paid 2.19 and this season the contract price is up to 2.69. The bill is getting a little hard to swallow.
I am hoping to get the PF100 and run about 6-7 tons of pellets/ year and cut my heating bill in half.
