If you are worried about heating costs this winter, you are not alone.
Everywhere you look there are forecasts about how cold and snowy it is going to be. What makes this worse are the reports that heating costs are also on the rise as well.
If you’re using propane – you’ve likely already felt the pain of handing over that monstrous check. Propane prices have been on the rise for several years now and people are desperate to find some relief.
That relief has come to some, in the way of wood pellets. But new reports indicate that wood pellet prices are on the rise. Due to an abnormally cold winter last year, they were not able to harvest trees as they normally have in years past. In addition, the demand from overseas has also been rising.
But I am not here for doom and gloom. There is some good news. Some folks in the business of selling pellets have come up with some ideas to help out:
- Make sure you plan ahead (like NOW). Start to pre-order your wood pellets where it’s available.
- DON’T HOARD! It makes it difficult for everyone to obtain a fair share of pellets.
- Consider your options. Wood pellets are processed wood, hence the cost. If you are in an area that has plentiful wood, you may want to consider today’s log-wood fueled appliances like the Greenwood Frontier CX.
