    The amount of wasted heat from a wood stove varies with the quality of its design.

    I'd get a pellet stove before wood or coal. JMO.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    You Are

    Still going in reverse, don't know about you but we are in the central heating business.

    Wood burners, coal, and kerosene are all old crap and going in reverse in my estimation, unless you're a backwoodsman.

    If oil and gas heating prices keep going up, we'll have to become backwoodsmen again!

    At least wood is a renewable resource. I'd rather we re-seed the forests for fuel then build housing developments over every inch of open land so we we can let more of the 3rd world into this country.

    At 2.70 a gal, I'll glady move to the woods, and be a back woodsman.

    Our heatpump sales have incresed since the gas, and oil prices went up, and more duel fuel request are also coming in.

    doesnt matter.....i just spent the last week or so blowing all my walls with insulation (100 yr old home), and insulated the attic last winter. its alot better, but with a 100 year old house, theres only so many things you can do. besides that, if my furnace only came on once an hour, i would still hate it.
