One Million BTUs

By | On Oct 11, 2011 | Comments (0)

You want to buy a million BTUs of heat?  That’s approximately what an average size, normally insulated home in Vermont would require to keep warm in mid-winter for 4 days.  Obviously, we don’t buy BTUs, we buy fuel.  But comparing the costs of all fuels to provide an identical amount of heat is a very easy way to see the differences.

Here’s what you’ll spend:

  • Electricity         $43.46            Hope you’re not heating this way…
  • Propane             $41.11             Not very pretty, huh?
  • Oil                         $32.29            Think this price is on a downward trend???
  • Pellets                 $18.83             Least expensive way to heat, next to…
  • Wood                   $13.64            Not for everyone, but what a difference!

Remember, this difference is coming out of your pocket every four days! During our six month heating season, this 4 day difference comes out 45 times!!!

So, in dollars and cents (sense???), turn off the propane furnace, use your new wood stove, and save $27.47 (that’s $41.11 – $13.64) 45 times, for a total savings of $1,236.15!!! And that’s every year!

Don’t just take our word for it…these costs come from a monthly report, courtesy of the Vermont Department of Public Service.  See the September 2011 Vermont Fuel Price report for more details!

Until other renewable, less expensive ways of heating are developed, biomass (wood, pellets, corn, agricultural wastes, wood chips) represent the most economical and environment-friendly method of heating!  Come in and explore all the new ways, as well as the tried and true, to heat your home with wood and pellet fuel!
