If you are looking at better, more effective and more economical ways to heat your home, you should consider wood pellet stoves. The benefits of a wood pellet stove include a higher combustion and heating efficiency than your traditional wood stove. As a result, little air pollution is produced. Heating capacities for St. Croix pellet stoves range up to 40,000 BTU’s per hour.

Pellet stoves can fit in traditional or modern homes and the large windows allow you to relax and enjoy the fire, just like with a wood stove.

Incentives for Pellet Furnaces in New Hampshire

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Multi-fuel furnaces are a dependable and renewable alternative for heating your home. These multi fuel furnaces can heat your home while being cost-effective and reliable. Best of all, they burn any of six renewable, natural fuel sources—wood pellets, distillers grain pellets, corn, wheat, rye or cherry pits—with minimal emissions and clean-burning, long-lasting fuel. And in New Hampshire, you get an incentive for installing one in your home.

New Hampshire’s pellet and wood pellet furnace industry will be getting a boost, thanks to the Public Utilities Commission which will fund a former federal stimulus program with $450,000 from the state’s Renewable Energy Fund.

Under the program the PUC will rebate the installation cost of fully automated wood pellet heating systems, to a maximum of $6,000.

That’s a full heating system, with a pellet furnace in the basement being fed automatically, controlled by a thermostat in the home.

The program will provide rebates to the first homeowners who sign up.

This is the second go-round for the program. The first program had some 96 homes switched to wood pellet furnaces.

About two-thirds of the state geographically and about 40% of the population don’t have access to natural gas.

Full details on the rebate program can be found on the PUC website.

Ae you considering a pellet stove to heat your home this winter? If so, here’s what you need to about wood pellet stoves, and whether the money-saving and efficiency claims are really true.

Automatic

Pellet stoves from St Croix Stoves are fully automatic. This means that all you have to do is fill them with pellets. You won’t need to light it yourself, or remember to let it die out if you are leaving for a while. You’ll also be able to wake up to a warm home without having to light the fire.

Fully programmable

Modern wood pellet stoves often take advantage of the latest technology and have display panels, and are fully programmable. You can set your stove to a thermostat and you can set it to go off and on when you want.

Ideal for homes

Pellet stoves provide enough heat for most homes. Be sure when purchasing a pellet stove you know how much square footage you want it to heat.

Attractive and stylish

You’ll soon find that modern wood pellet stoves are available in attractive and stylish designs and trims. You’ll be able to find something that blends in with your decor, or perhaps you’ll want your stove to be the focal point of the room.

Large capacity hopper

Choosing a wood pellet stove with a large capacity hopper will mean that you don’t have to fill it as often, so you can enjoy the fire and heat provided by your pellet stove, with less work.

More are Using Pellet Stoves as Heating Costs Rise

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 13, 2012

More Americans are turning to burning wood, in the form of wood pellets, to heat their homes in winter. As a result, demand for wood pellets could be on the rise. All this according to National Geographic.

The rise in prices for traditional home heating fuels is driving demand for wood and pellet fuel. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that after declining in use throughout the ’80s and ’90s, wood for fuel has been on the rise for the past decade. It noted that households using wood as a main source of heat, including wood pellet stoves, increased from 1.87 million in 2005 to 2.47 million in 2011.

As wood experiences a resurgence in use, more Americans are turning to pellet stoves and furnaces to heat their homes. “Pellets are much cleaner in terms of emissions,” John Ackerly of the Alliance for Green Heat, a nonprofit organization that advocates the use of high-efficiency wood for home heating, told National Geographic. “They are a low-moisture, consistent, dense wood product. Wood can be variable, and when people burn wet wood in a stove they produce a lot of emissions. Wood can be very operator-dependent.”

Pellet Stoves Let You Go Green and Save Money

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Many homeowners are looking for ways to make their homes more eco-friendly, renewable, green, sustainable - the list goes on. Homeowners are also looking for ways to lower home heating bills. Do both at the same time.

Pellet heat: the clever alternative

Pellets are small and generally made from recycled wood or agricultural products, like wheat or corn. They burn in pellet and multi fuel stoves, inserts and furnaces to help heat your home.

Positive Environmental Impact

Pellet stoves are an extremely clean-burning heating option. They are also a “carbon neutral” fuel, meaning the amount of carbon emitted from burning pellets is equal to, or less than, the amount of carbon plants need to make the fuel. In fact, research showed heating with wood pellets emits about 90% less carbon than oil, and 84% less carbon than natural gas.

Making the switch

If you’re tired of relying on foreign oil and want to help the environment, you’re not alone. Approximately 1 million homes in the U.S. currently use pellet stoves for heating. That number is expected to rise as international oil prices remain volatile, and the ill effects of environmental pollution and outsourcing remain.

Pellet appliances – pellet burning stoves and multi fuel furnaces allow homeowners to tap into this efficient, eco-friendly trend.

Extended burn times and high efficiency ratings make pellets a viable option for heating your home.

Do something to help the environment that actually makes sense and saves you money. Pellets are a practical option to help heat your home. For more information, contact St. Croix Stoves.

Pellet Stoves are Popular for Home Heating

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 30, 2012
hastings-pellet

We’re well into fall and that means chillier days and nights, so attention is now turning to sources of heat.

For most people that just means turning on the gas or oil heat, but others are choosing alternative sources for warmth, such as multi-fuel and pellet stoves.

Though colder, winter-like temperatures are still probably several weeks away, people are starting to buy new pellet stoves or they are getting the maintenance done on their existing ones. The sales of pellet stoves have been up for the last three months or so.

The popularity of pellet stoves started back in the 1980s and their popularity has remained mostly because they’re generally regarded as cleaner and more convenient than wood burning stoves or fireplaces.

While in recent years more pellets have been made through environmentally-friendly processes such as using pressed sawdust, traditional wood pellets remain the best seller. Most wood pellets are made by producers who obtain leftover sawdust from manufacturers such as furniture makers.

Wood pellet stoves are by far the most popular stoves. However, depending on the availability of fuel, multi-fuel stoves are also becoming more and more popular.

High Heating Costs Expected This Winter

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 23, 2012
hastings-stove

Mother Nature might not be as friendly toward Midwestern homeowners’ heating budgets for the 2012-13 winter as she was a year earlier.

One way to avoid the increasing prices of fossil fuels is by heating your home with pellet stoves, mult-fuel stoves or multi-fuel furnaces. Pellet and biomass heat allow you to supplement your current home heating or to heat your home off the grid altogether.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration recently released its Winter Fuels Outlook, which offers year-to-year projections of the costs U.S. consumers will face to heat their homes.

The federal agency predicts that this winter won’t be as mild in many parts of the US as last year’s, resulting in heavier use of home heating systems.

“EIA expects higher average fuel bills this winter in states east of the Rocky Mountains,” the fuels outlook noted. “A return to a near-normal winter is the main driver of higher expenditures.”

In the Midwest, the Energy Information Administration predicts that prices for natural gas and propane will be up slightly compared to last year. Heating oil’s price trend is expected to make a sharper climb from last year than the other fuels.

But when consumption levels are factored in along with raw fuel prices, overall bills for all heating types are expected to move upward from last year’s.

In Northwest Michigan, the cash price for heating oil stood at $4.19 per gallon, up 43 cents from a year ago.

Heating oil is expected to move upward in cost in the months ahead. But like other products that incorporate crude oil as their primary ingredient, marketplace conditions can cause sharp price variations.

Spend Less for Heat with Multi-Fuel Furnaces

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Home owners are tired of spending so much on energy.

Have worked in the commercial side of things; why not heat your homes with a multi fuel furnace? Multi-fuel furnaces are a dependable alternative. Available in two distinct models, these furnaces can supplement your current source of heat, while being cost-effective and reliable.

Costs to heat and cool homes takes a larger chunk each year from increasingly tight budgets. There is interest in finding fuel sources and equipment that are environmentally friendly and low-maintenance. The answer, both literally and figuratively, is in the backyard. Multi-fuel furnaces burn any of six renewable, natural fuel sources—wood pellets, distillers grain pellets, corn, wheat, rye or cherry pits.

There are many benefits of saying goodbye to fossil fuel and embracing wood heat. Since residential pellet stoves have become commonplace, more people have found out that heating with wood pellets is clean, safe, less expensive and makes sense.

European countries have used biomass heating and cooling for years, because they have fewer resources and always have had to conserve energy. With the rising prices of oil and the realization that oil won’t be around forever, more and more U.S. communities are beginning to make the change to biomass.

Fuels include wood, corn, grass, manure or other biodegradable fuel sources. Wood pellets are readily available and, for the environmentally conscious, there’s an added bonus. After the pellets burn, only recyclable ash remains because drying the wood reduces the moisture content from 42% to 5%.

Heating with a pellet or multi fuel furnace can cut heating costs in half.

A Cold Winter is Expected – Multi Fuel and Pellet Stoves For Better Heat

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 09, 2012
greenfield-MF

Energy industry analysts consider the home heating season to be Oct. 1 through April 1. Home heating prices vary from fuel to fuel.

The real issue is the likelihood we’re in for a colder winter. Last winter was warmest winter we’ve ever had in many parts of the nation.

Homeowners shouldn’t expect two years in a row of record-breaking warmth. And while it is hard to put much stock in long-term forecasts, a developing, weak El Nino may offer clues to what the coming season holds. If it’s a weak El Nino, we get slightly more snowfall than normal and slightly cooler temperatures. More oil customers are signing up for budget oil plans in anticipation of higher heating bills. Prices for wood pellets are stable, while firewood prices are harder to gauge. The Energy Information Administration reported that propane stocks nationwide are 32% higher than they were at this time last year. Residential heating oil prices, as of August, stood at an average of $3.92 per gallon, about 10 cents higher than at the start of the 2011-12 heating season.

Alternative heat

The relatively high cost of propane and home heating oil has some residents considering supplemental heating like pellet stoves and multi-fuel stoves.

With pellet stoves and multi-fuel stoves, you can heat your entire home, or you can use pellet stoves to supplement the heat that you have.

Pellet and multi fuel stoves have the same or better heating energy as wood, and they are considerably cheaper than fuel oil or propane.
