I have a wood stove, my brother has a pellet stove. I don't like the sound of his fan, that everything weighs 40 lbs., that he has to pay for all his fuel, has to clean it a fair amount, or that it doesn't work without power.

He doesn't like that my wood stove takes longer to heat further areas, that wood is messy, that I have/choose to scrounge or don't have a reliable source, or that it takes adjustment to burn properly.

There are definitely pros and cons with no clear winner.

I will say this, though, if you're doing research: make sure to look at the latest of both. My guess is that the newest pellet stoves are quieter and the newest wood stoves have both increased efficiency and automation.

Godspeed!
