as I’m sitting here thinking about my dwindling heating budget, and watching the snow fall yet again. I’m wondering if this is a “normal” winter? Have we been so spoiled the last few years that we were lulled into false confidence when an actual winter hits? There are a thousand questions are running around in my head, most revolve around our current un sustainable heating methods. We currently use a mix of oil heat, and wood pellets.
I feel like a switch to wood is the way to go, but at the same time we lack ample forest around us to make this hugely affordable.
After a bit of research I’ve found that creating your own pellets versus buying them could be the way to go. The only thing left is to decide on a pellet burner that can handle the whole homestead. More to come soon.
