CHOOSING ALTERNATIVE FUELS OR SPACE HEATING
Space heating with a wood, gas, pellet or coal stove in your main living area is a great way to stay comfy and warm while saving money. Major sources report that you save an average of 30% by space heating. Simply stated, heat the space where you spend the most time! Using alternative fuels can also provide savings in heating costs, but the real savings comes from using a combination of Space Heating and alternative fuels.
A good way to understand the price benefits of space heating with wood or gas is to compare it against other home heating fuels. The Compare Fuel Costs chart (from the Pellet Fuels Institute) can assist in comparing home heating fuels.
