Is your house old and drafty? Did you give up a long time ago on trying to save money while heating your drafty old house?
There’s something to be said about living in an older house with tons of charm and loads of character, often featuring open staircases, big windows, built-ins, and two stories. Drafts are not part of that charm, however, and many people find that updates to the insulation and roof don’t completely eliminate those pesky drafts.
Many people, grain farmers included, have discovered that the warm heat of corn or pellet stoves works well in heating drafty house. If you have corn or wheat (or both) that you’d like to use to heat your home, then the line of Magnum flex-fuel heating products is an excellent solution.
According to Holly Harz, “The Countryside stove keeps us warm even in our big old drafty house! It’s our primary source of heat all winter, and it even LOOKS nice in our central Family Room. I miss the fireplace from my childhood home, and being able to see the flames warms me inside as well as out. The Countryside paid for itself in savings the first year, and continues to keep our heating costs down. It has it all; lower cost and ease of use! Thanks for your service…”
“We have a Countryside Magnum,” says Lee Horton, “and we love it. Your safety measures work. Ran the stove on higher setting than they said we could, the stove got hot, shutdown and restarted with no problem. We had a different stove 2 years ago, and was nowhere close to being as good ~it keeps this old farm house warm.”
We had no trouble finding people willing to share their positive experiences with heating older homes. It seems that people across the country are finding corn, pellets, and wheat a viable solution to a warm, toasty home. “We purchased a Magnum Countryside. We don’t even turn on our other heat! If you don’t have a Magnum bio-fuel stove then you are throwing your money away! What a superbly engineered product!” words from Pete Raskovic another happy Countryside owner.
Hearing a lot about Magnum Pellet Stoves? That’s because customers rave about the heat and savings, and we think you will too!
