There are about 1/2 a dozen ways to heat your home; gas, oil, electric heat, and pellet stoves are a few of these options. With the price of oil and electric these days, adding a wood pellet stove to your home can help reduce your monthly bills drastically. If you currently use electric heat, pellets can reduce your heating costs by almost 2/3 and they are about 1/2 the cost of propane. Unlike chimneys, wood pellet stoves can be placed just about any where in your home. All that needs to be installed is a tin metal liner. The emissions are not nearly as great as that of a regular wood stove. The pellets themselves look like rodent food. They are created out of recycled, compressed sawdust from lumber mills and come in 40lb. bags. It is a lot easier and cleaner to store pellets than it is to store a cord of firewood. Froehlich’s Farm & Garden carries a premium brand of clean burning pellets made by Pennington. The ash content is less than 1% and they are made of hardwood. Each bag is $7.00 and a ton is $285.00. This may sound a lot more expensive than what you get at major hardware stores, but the quality makes up for the price discrepancy. Stop in and try a bag! We also deliver!
