Wood Pellet Furnaces Save You Money on Heating

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 09, 2013

A project to install wood pellet furnaces in northern New Hampshire has reached out to an apartment complex in Berlin.

The Berlin Housing Authority’s Welch apartment complex expects to save $11,000 a year on heating fuel with the installation of the wood pellet furnaces.

The project is part of the Berlin Model Neighborhood Project, which is helping the region move away from dependence on imported oil toward a local energy source to help create jobs and strengthen the forest economy.

The Welch complex, which houses 55 elderly and disabled people, also plans to upgrade its hot water system, insulate crawlspaces, add water conservation features and program thermostats.

‘‘The Berlin Housing Authority is leading the way in energy efficiency and their investments are helping residents lower their energy consumption and costs,’’ said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen,.

The Neighborhood Project has funded installation of the boilers in 37 home. It plans to complete conversions in three more homes and renovate the Notre Dame School this fall.

Multi-fuel furnaces and wood pellet furnaces are a dependable and less expensive alternative to heating with fossil fuels. Available in two distinct models from St. Croix Stoves, these furnaces can supplement your current source of heat, while being cost-effective and reliable.  If you are interested in saving money on home heating this winter, you need information on wood pellet and multi-fuel furnaces from St. Croix Stoves, contact Us.

Corn Fueled Multi-Fuel Stoves are an Inexpensive Way to Heat Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 04, 2013

While crude oil prices continue to climb there is another way to heat your home that is inexpensive: corn.

Heating with corn used to be more popular, but it is experiencing a resurgence from multi-fuel stoves. Multi-fuel stoves are an alternative way to heat your home. With the rise in heating prices, more and more homeowners are looking for alternative ways to heat their homes.

Oil prices have risen every year, as a result oil has become an expensive way to heat your home all winter long.  The price of corn futures has stayed fairly consistent. As a result, mutli-fuel stoves using corn as fuel, is an efficient, cost effective, way to heat your home. With the steady price of corn, it is also easy to budget for. Multi-fuel stoves use the same amount of corn every year to keep your home warm.

Therefore, you know with consistency how much you will spend each winter on home heating. Corn is not subject to the regular and consistent price fluctuations that oil is.

Homeowners who heat their homes with corn like mulit-fuel stoves as a heat source. Not only is corn less expensive, it is also a green fuel, it is renewable energyMulti-fuel stoves take your home off the grid and lower your dependence on foreign oil.

If you live in the Midwest, heating with corn could be very economical. Additionally, when you heat with corn fueled multi-fuel stoves, the money you spend to heat your home stays local.

Do you’re your research and contact St. Croix Stoves for more information on multi fuel stoves to heat your home next winter.

Summer is the Perfect Time to Make the Switch to Pellet Stoves

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 31, 2013

There are a lot of benefits to heating your home with pellet stoves. And this is the perfect time of year to consider making the switch. But let’s talk about the benefits of pellet heat first.

Pellet heat is far less expensive than other home heating options like gas, oil, electricity and propane. If your home heating bills are taxing your wallet in the winter, it is time to consider a less expensive option. Pellet stoves can be used to heat your home entirely, or they can be used to supplement your existing heating system. Either way you will save money. Additionally, pellet heat is easy to budget. Wood pellet and other multi-fuel stoves are not subject to price fluctuations. The prices of pellets stays constant all winter long.

Pellet stoves are a green source of heat. Using renewable fuel sources reduces your carbon footprint. As a result, you can feel better about heating your home. An added benefit to pellet heat is that it also keeps you ‘off the grid’. If you are interested in a sustainable fuel source for heating your home, pellet stoves are the answer.

Pellets are easy to use and easy to store. Pellets are delivered to your home on one-ton pallets. To use, grab a bag and empty it into the hopper, all done. No stacking, no lugging, no cleaning up wood debris. Pellets are clean and easy to transport, making  using your pellet stove easy as pie.

Pellet stoves are beautiful to look at. While heating your home, you can relax in front of a roaring, relaxing fire. And to light that fire, you only need to flick a switch. Many pellet stoves can be controlled with  remote and/or by a thermostat. No more struggling to light the fire after a long day at work.

Summer is a great time to consider converting your heat to a pellet stove. Avoid the rush and the stress. The summer gives you the time to do your research, time to do price comparisons between heating with pellets and your present heat source, and time to have it installed before you actually need it.

Pellet Stoves Are More Popular

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Today, nearly one in three stoves sold are pellet stoves, up from just 11% market share in 1999.

Pellet stoves have lower emissions profiles than wood burning stoves. However, pellet stoves have rarely been recognized in rebate and incentive programs as distinct from wood stoves. Distinct incentives from manufacturers or retailers could increase pellet stove sales. Incentives have consumers inquiring about pellet stoves. Once consumers understand how easy to use and efficient pellet stoves are and how easy to store pellets are they are more interested in buying pellet stoves over wood stoves. When consumers find out about the benefits of pellet stoves, the decision to buy is an easy one. Lower heating bills, more heating efficiency and ease of use are just some of the benefits of pellet stoves.  

Pellet stoves are an example of a new and effective renewable energy technology. Pellet stoves should be treated like solar and geothermal in the federal tax code, then many more consumers would have a very affordable way to reduce fossil fuels.

Switching to Pellet Furnaces Saves Money on Energy Bills

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 07, 2013

A project to install pellet furnaces in over 30 homes in New England, is saving money on residential heating bills. The homeowners participating are on track to save more than $50,000 a year on home heating now that they've replaced their oil burners with wood pellet furnaces.

St. Croix Stoves has created two different multi-fuel furnaces, the Revolution and the SCF-050, to help you save on your energy bills. Spring is the perfect time to make the switch. Both of our multi fuel furnaces are designed to burn pellets, corn, wheat, cherry pits, distiller’s grain pellets or rye. Using renewable fuels is an environmentally wise choice and can reduce traditional heating bills.

The “Revolution” multi fuel furnace virtually runs itself. It has a rotating ash and clinker removal system and is self-igniting as well as a revolutionary, patent-pending burn-pot and a dual hopper ignition system. Pellets are used for lighting the furnace; it then switches to the chosen fuel in the main hopper. The “Revolution” pot rotates every two hours without the unit ever shutting down.

The innovative features of the SCF-050 multi fuel furnace include: extended heat exchange surface, large clinker and ash pan, convenient fire viewing glass and direct thru-the-wall venting. The SCF-050 multi fuel furnace also includes a manually switchable two-speed room air blower. The digital control board can also be connected to an optional room thermostat. A unique clinker and ash removal system allows continuous furnace operation.

The “Revolution” multi-fuel furnace can be used for supplemental heat or as a stand-alone heater.  Our SCF-050 multi-fuel furnace supplies supplemental heat in conjunction with your present heating system or it can be used as a stand-alone heater.  

Keep more cash in your pocket and make an environmentally sound decision.  Choose one of our St. Croix multi fuel furnaces for your home.
