Have you been heating your home with wood pellets? This year, many pellet-users are switching to heating oil because the price of pellets has gone up immensely. Formerly, heating with pellets was known for being able to save you money. More recently, it has been noted that the prices of pellets have been increasing since earlier this year. Despite the fact that pellet stoves generally cost less to install than oil heaters, the price of the pellets themselves are the problem. When you combine that with shipping costs, it is clear that it is becoming more cost-effective to use oil heating systems as opposed to pellets.
Some of the benefits of heating oil include:
- Environmentally friendly
- Energy efficient
- Virtually unlimited supply
- Safe (non-explosive)
