According to an article I read awhile back, heating oil averaged $3.527 a gallon in 2008.
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.
