We have just replaced the coal fuelled central heating/hotwater system with a large MCZ pellet boiler. It also works as a room heater and looks similar to a modern designed wood burner.
It has a quick response time in heating the radiators and provides plenty of hot water having a large tank capacity. Although we can't provide definate information on running costs based on such a short time there are plenty of good things to support the move over to a pellet system. Loading up the boiler is cleaner and easier using the 10kg bags and lasts about 2 days.On present fuel costs this comes out about £10 pellets compared with £18 for the equivalent load of coal. The boiler has a cleaning programme and because there is so little waste it only needs emptying every three days or so.
The only down side so far is that it is a little noisier than what we anticipated when it is on full burn however it only lasts a short while (and you can turn the TV volume up!).
Buying the pellets in bulk a full pallet load works out cheaper and it is easier and cleaner to store and takes up less room than coal or logs. On present prices it costs more than logs (but you need more) and about £90 less a ton than coal. I think we get a good deal from Hodge Fencing in terms of cost and delivery and a bonus that Gordon is happy to help load the pellets into the shed!
