This! And the cat and dog do a good job of chasing the bugs around that hitch a ride on the firewood... Not a big deal as most of the winter here is sub freezing. Now and early fall the bugs are a little more present...
Also, I grew up with the early pellet stoves and they sucked! I've heard the new ones are better but you still need power for them to work.
