When we found our house (we're not owners right now), there was already a pellet stove. I don't really appreciate it because it uses electricity (I don't know how much but we now depend on it) and I don't know if pellets are very sustainable. If we buy the house, is it better to change for a wood stove or to keep the actual stove.
Edit : we live near the mountains, there's a lot of wood here, not difficult to find a local retailant. We are in the middle of the France. After reflexion, we can't use solar panels to produce electricity for our own house : the electricity compagnies must buy it and then re-sell it to us. The stove is use to warm the house, not just a as decorative.
