Final degree day calculation.

Now if you find the yearly number of heating degree days for your area, you can multiply that by 1.03 to get yearly consumption.

Based on 7000 HDDs it looks like I'd need 3.6 tons to make it through the year if I used coal exclusively. I have too much "free" wood to do that though.

Thanks,

Sell the wood... preferably to a campsite at a high price.

There is a stand down the valley that sells 7 small piece bundles/ $5 and they always sell out.

I'm looking into selling some wood this summer. There are quite a few summer homes in our area. I probably could set up a self serve stand at the end of our driveway. It looks like most bundles sell for $6 to $8 around here.

Thanks for the idea guys!
