SO we have been heating with our woodstove for nearly 9 years now.It is hard for us to come across wood but we manage.NOw,I have a propblem with the dust from when we clean out the stove.It is awful,I seem to find a black film on the windows and dust everywhere. How do you manage to deal with these issues???I know that it is nicer than paying for propane.The stove that we have doesn't have a ash tray so we have to shovel it out.We will be looking into a newer stove with an ash tray. Do you think it's worth having a wood stove over paying for propane OR do any of you all have pellets stoves???????
