You might assume that firewood is a rather economic option for home heating. It can be, but only if you purchase the firewood from the right source. Buying your wood at the grocery store is far more expensive than other sources at roughly 50 cents apiece, although the grocery store beats all other options in convenience. If you are willing to chop down the wood yourself, you can often pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $25 to cut down as much as you’d like. If you’d prefer not to cut it yourself, you can have some delivered to your house for roughly $100.
