Last year my wife and I were concerned about heating costs for our home in Coralville. After going to the Energy Expo in Cedar Rapids, we met Ed Williams from Century Farm Harvest Heat. Ed sells corn burning stoves and wood pellet stoves here in the Iowa City Area. After lots of research, we decided to take the leap, and bought a corn burning stove made by St. Croix. It has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. Our home stayed toasty warm, and we did this without guilt or hurting our wallets.
If anybody would like to see my heating bill for my 2200 squarefoot home, email me. My gas company hates me because it was always no more that $55, the cost of keeping the piliot light on.
Century Farm Harvest Heat will deliver corn to you on a regular basis. Corn burns a lot cleaner that wood and it is not nearly as messy. Very little ash and dust created.
Ed's Service is fantastic. Installation was a breeze and did not require any holes in my roof. They cut a small hole in the wall and went straight out.
Anybody looking for a fireplace, I would strongly recommend looking at these stoves and furnaces. They look great and work awesome.
