really cool stove thing lol

we just got this stove thing I think its called a pellet stove anyway, my grandma bought it to save on propane because its a little out of hand and I think its awesome lol it keeps the house at about 75 and rarely ever does it get below 65 even at night,
The pellets...look like rolled oats kind of and they are wood and they burn, like a fire only not so much fire its more of little embers than a fire,
Anyway I just wanted to share because I think its cool...its really heavy though I couldnt even lift it with help when we put it in lol
Here is a pic of it

Pellets are nice, but keep a check on the price /bag
Most places around here sell them by the ton.

And since it is not vented, be careful it doesn't deplete
The oxygen in the room.

Have warm times with the pellet stove !

I love pellet- or even wood burning stoves. I have a wood burning stove. Nothing's better than being cold and backing up to a hot fire and feeling all cozy and snuggly. Tho...when it gets really cold out, my hubby will get a blazing fire going and then we strip down to shorts and t-shirt and freeze when it's time for more wood!!! Hahahaha...I wish HE has a thermostat!

Congrats on the new stove!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
