Save money & secure your family’s energy needs – make your home a hybrid

One of the most common questions we get here at WoodPellets.com is: “How much will I save on my heating bill when I switch to wood pellets?” And the answer is, LOTS. Our average customer will save $682 this year by heating with wood pellets instead of oil, and even more compared to propane.

BUT, there’s another benefit to heating with wood pellets that’s a little less tangible, but just as important: the security of knowing your home is a hybrid. When you diversify your home energy system with a highly efficient and renewable source like pellets, you’re declaring your energy independence. You’re ensuring that you have options to keep your family warm, your lights on, and your costs down, no matter what’s happening with oil supply or propane prices.

We just read a pretty inspiring blog post by Martin LaMonica of CNET, explaining why he made his home a hybrid. His honest assessment of payback and benefits is a great indicator of what you – the typical homeowner – would likely see.  And we think it’s exciting to know that taking a few steps to supplement your heating or electricity systems with a renewable source will secure your energy needs, on the grid or off, no matter what.
