Wood versus Fossil Fuels

Burning a high quality firewood in an efficient wood stove is an excellent way to cut your winter heating costs. Quality Oak firewood from Broken Branch Farms has a very high heat output with 1 cord of wood containing approximately 21 million to 24 million BTU’s of energy. To get that same heat you would need approximately 200-250 gallons of heating oil or 250-300 cubit feet of natural gas!

Electricity per KWH X 293 = $43.95
No. 2 Oil per Gallon X 9.61 = $28.73
Propane per Gallon X 13.32 = $27.84
Natural Gas per Therm X 12.5 = $48.56
Pellets per Ton X .089 = $22.25
2.5 Ricks=Cord Wood per Cord X .073 = $16.43
