Firewood, wood pellet, fuels cost comparison

Comparative costs of firewood, wood pellets and other fuels

One of our clients asked us for a comparison chart for the price of various fuels so I did some maths and came up with this. The chart clearly shows that wood pellets, when bought in bulk, end up easily beating oil, gas, lpg and even a very well installed heat pump achieving a COP of 3:1 (that is 1kW of electricity in for 3kW of heat out. Actually they will often have a lower ratio than this, more like 2.3:1. These lower ratios are probably down to the installation and system design). The chart also highlights that it makes sense to source firewood in bulk quantities, sourcing it wet and then seasoning it yourself. Here is a link to the full pdf which compares the costs of fuels
