Q: I have a really good question as the cooler weather approaches. We are looking into alternative ways to heat our two-story 2,300 sf home. It's a really old farmhouse, so not very efficient. Plowing through 4 tanks of oil per winter is brutal on the checkbook, so I'd like to add either a pellet stove or wood stove. I'm sure the good readers of Apartment Therapy (especially those in cooler temps! I live in Maryland, btw. I have researched and experienced the pros and cons of each I would not be cutting my own wood -- either cords or pellets would be delivered. What would be best from a cost and ease of use perspective?Sent by Meredith
