Take a look at any “top home features list” and you’re likely to find home energy improvements somewhere on the list. Homeowners see the value on long-term comfort and savings that certain features provide. Read HGTV’s 30 tips to increase value of home, and you’ll see it includes cutting energy costs (#5).

If you are considering switching to pellet stove heat, it’s a good investment now and for the future. You’ll immediately save money on cheaper fuel and heat efficiency when the colder weather hits. Later, if you decide to sell, buyers look at heating costs. They often factor in utilities, and a pellet stove provides more heating options than most homeowners have because of the flexibility of fuels as well as being able to switch between pellet stove, furnace, or both depending on needs.
