Winter is coming and what better way to keep your home warm than a pellet stove. Although pellet stoves aren’t nearly as warm as small wood stoves, they definitely pack a punch for their size.

On average, the price of a pellet stove can vary between $1,000 to $3,000 and usually require installation help.
