Adding fuel Wood stoves filled in by hand, in this case, the fuel is taken from the outer container (baskets, etc.) and loaded into the furnace as a result of: trash on the floor. In pellet stoves is much easier to fill the tank, designed for a specific duration of combustion, and ignition by pressing a single button.
Fuel storage Firewood should be stored in a special dry. This room should keep firewood in ideal conditions, preventing them from moisture. To store the pellet fuel requires a minimum space, for example 650 kg of granules occupy about 1 cubic meter. Pellets should be stored in a dry, such as a basement, the room also can buy them at any time in a different rasfasofke (15 kg, 30 kg, etc.).

    Along with what was said, I was hoping for the BTU’s for each,. I’m leaning toward the pellets, but I do have 6 acres with some dead wood on it and could probably get 3 years of heat out of that and then switch to the pellets. But then, I would need to purchase a chain saw & gas for the critter as well.. Maybe I just talked myself into a pellet stove.. LOL
