When it comes to using energy one of the biggest things is heating! So chosing a heating method that is efficient and economical is very important. Right now we have a wood stove as the only heat source in our finished basement. It does a great job of heating the space, but the chores of hauling wood and building and stoking the fire get old very fast. Many days we don't even bother to start a fire in it, and just bundle up in blankets when we want to go downstairs.
So we are looking into alternative ways to heat the area, and one of the best is adding a free standing stove. Stoves can burn coal, wood or wood pellets, and come in lots of styles and sizes to provide an efficient, clean burning fire. Wood pellets have become a popular heating alternative over the past few years, because they are convenient and can help reduce your carbon footprint.
So I have been reading up on Harman Pellet Stoves, to see what would be right for our basement. I like the idea of continuing to use a renewable energy source like wood, but a pellet stove would elminate the whole chore of splitting and stacking wood. It would also we much easier to start and keep going, so we wouldn't have to freeze in the basement all the time. My husband and I hope to get a new and better heating source installed by the fall, so we will be toasty warm all next winter.
