I am building a house in Charlotte, NC and I am seriously considering installing a wood pellet/corn stove into the plan. I would like to use the stove as an adjunct to the central gas HVAC system.
The house will be 3300 sf and the stove will be located in the 2 story family room.
Can you make a product suggestion keeping in mind up front costs, fuel consumption and repair?
I am hearing conflicting thoughts about which is better, corn or wood pellets. I like the idea of having the stove to save money, as compaired to the costs of gas. However, is the upkeep on the stove, whether it is wood or corn a large chore and expense?
