How well did you plan/estimate your bulk corn purchase this year? If you didn’t burn corn in your multi-fuel pellet stove or fireplace this year, how well did you estimate your wood pellet or other renewable fuel?
The use of renewable fuels for heat is meant to save you money, in addition for being a greener choice for our environment and keeping dollars closer to home. However, purchasing too much bulk fuel can mean loss of money, as it is ill advised to store corn, wheat, or wood pellets over the long, hot, and humid summer. Therefore, estimating as close as possible to the amount of fuel you’ll need is important to avoid wasting money and fuel.
What can you do to plan your bulk corn purchase better in 2015-2016?
Get to know a local farmer near you. Let him or her know that you have a pellet stove that burns renewable fuel, and you’re looking for a local bulk source to help save money and keep dollars local. As long as your fuel is dried to within 12% moisture and clean, you can buy anywhere you choose. Here is how one pellet stove owner saved money by buying corn from a neighbor.

It’s important to have a warm home during the cold winter months. It’s even more important to have a warm and comfortable home when you bring a new baby home during the middle of winter. A Magnum Countryside or Winchester stove is a great option to pumping plenty of warm, toasty air into your home and keeping your whole family safe and comfortable.
“My wife and I purchased our Magnum Winchester before the start of the 2008 heating season. We had just bought our first house the year before and were floored on the amount of money we spent on fuel oil. With a new baby in the house it is very important to keep our house nice & toasty warm. Well our new pellet stove has done just that and more. We have already saved money and will continue to save money” Matt Maneely, homeowner and dad.
“We can’t believe the amount of heat the stove puts out! This stove has fulfilled our expectations and surpassed them. And the customer service we have received has been great, the gentlemen that installed it were quick, efficient and professional. They showed us how to operate our stove and answered any question we had.”
We’re so glad that Matt and his family are warm and happy with their Winchester stove. If you have a question we can answer, please let us know. To find out how you can get Great Discounts, click here.
