Cost of burning Wood vs Heating Oil

According to an article I recently read, heating oil averaged $3.527 a gallon.

How does this compare to burning wood in a catalytic stove?
According to the experts, 166 gallons of oil equals one cord of wood.
This is $585.48 compared to the price of one cord of wood.

Do the math and compare your cost savings.

Wood heat in a catalytic stove is the least expensive heat available.

Further, wood is an entirely domestic resource.

Nearly half the households in the northeastern region of the United States use heating oil to provide part or all of their space heating needs. As the weather gets colder, consumers should be mindful of what they’ll be paying for heating oil.

Hi there! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about heating oil in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about heating oil. Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
Heating oil is known in the United States as No. 2 heating oil. In the U.S., it must conform to ASTM standard D396. Diesel and kerosene, while often confused as being similar or identical, must conform to their own respective ASTM standards. Heating oil is widely used in parts of the United States and Canada where natural gas is not available and propane is priced higher. Where other fuels are not available, it is sometimes referred to as the unit cost per unit (BTU=British thermal unit or BTUH / h per hour), and can be less than other fuels.
