I did burn wood for 20 Yrs in the living room stove.
Now since then I burn bagged anthracite in the same living room. If comparing to the full job from wood burning, there is no comparison with anth.
Cleaner to operate if wanted. I saw some videos showing very poor ways to work with anth.
Easier on the back,shoulders, elbows...
2 anth pellets are inside in about 1 Hr max, for the same 24/24 STEADY heat( but impossible to realise from a wood stove) = 2days of labor
No insects in anth
Less expensive when comparing to the 24/24 anth heat at the same temp, easy to regulate.
According to an article I saw last week, wood pellets is not that green as some want to beleive...
