Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 14, 2013

If you are thinking of improving the heating efficiency in your home, you may be trying to decide between a pellet stoves and a wood burning stove. There are some distinct advantages to pellet stoves and inserts that you should consider.

Pellet stoves have around a 90% efficiency rating and their BTU output, or heat output is about s 4 to 5 times greater than most wood stoves with far less air particle pollutants. Pellet stoves are the most efficient stoves on the market.

Easy to operate, once the hopper is filled a pellet stoves turns on with the push of a button and require far less loading than a traditional wood stove. Many pellet stoves and inserts can be used with a thermostat as well and have built in fans to help circulate the warm air.

Pellet stoves are generally more expensive than wood burning stoves, but the venting is significantly cheaper, balancing out the cost. Additionally, because pellet stoves are so efficient, they are also very economical to run.

Both types of stoves require maintenance. However, pellets create far less ash than wood burning stoves, so they need to cleaned less frequently. Because pellets are self contained, there is no mess in the storage and transporting of pellets, making for a much cleaner home.
