"Will a wood, multi-fuel or pellet stove
really save me money?"

   We've all heard  many of the great reasons for purchasing a wood (or wood pellet) stove.
      A few of the more popular reasons are:
      -It uses renewable fuel
      -The fuel is widely available
      -It makes you more self-reliable and independent from oil, electricity, etc.
      -The heat just feels "better" and the flame is cozy and beautiful to look at

      But the main thing on many people's minds who are considering the purchase of a wood, pellet or multi-fuel stove is:
   "Will a wood stove, multi-fuel or pellet stove save me money?"

   Please take a few moments to look below at some of the resources we've gathered that address the advantages of heating with wood or wood pellet fuel.  They cover many of the great perks of burning with wood and pellets, including the reasons listed above - and, yes, we've even included handy fuel calculators, so you can get an idea of how much money you can save.
