Pellet Stoves, So Many Reason to Have One

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Heat, beauty and efficiency are all reason enough to heat your home with a genuine pellet stove, but there are plenty of other benefits, features and advantages of pellet heat this winter.  Flexibility and practicality fuel the function of these stoves.

The cool weather is fast approaching, and many are considering a newer, better way to heat their homes. The most advanced wood burning technology is pellet stoves. They are used for space heating, efficiency, beauty and they use a renewable form of energy. The answer is wood pellet stoves as sustainable home heat.

Right now, there's a considerable amount of interest in alternative energy sources because the price of oil is unpredictable and both oil and electric heat are expensive. However, even if you have an older model wood stove or insert, it is important to know that wood stoves and fireplace inserts made before 1994 are not as efficient and cause more air pollution than newer, certified pellet stoves.

More and more people are putting in pellet stoves; mainly because there is more interest in how to bring the soaring cost of home heating down. And pellet stoves and multi-fuel stoves can add to your home’s comfort, value and enjoyment.

While many people are interested in lowering heating and energy costs, and others are interested in getting their home “off the grid,” there is some skepticism about alternative energies. But many homeowners are curious about it, and when they see the benefits, they're more interested.

Benefits of pellet stoves include their efficiency, the convenience, their ease of use, and that pellets are renewable. But on top of all this, pellet stoves are attractive and clean. Pellet stoves are extremely efficient, making costs of ownership low. Wood pellet stoves are great for the home or cottage because they are attractive as well as functional.

Most parts of the country experience unexpected weather from time to time, some parts more than others, and everyone is interested in maximizing their heating efficiency. Pellet stoves are distinctly suited to homeowners who like comfort and convenience, and want an excellent product that is durable and well suited to their family's personal or entertaining needs.

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.

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.

Multi-Fuel Stoves Save You Money on Heat

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 21, 2013

With the ever rising costs of fossil fuels, many are looking to more efficient, green, biomass heat. What does that mean? Biomass heat is heat fueled by renewable resources. Wood , wood pellets, and corn are examples of biomass fuel for heating your home. Biomass creates energy from the burning of bio fuels like excessive corn. Corn is a popular fuel source.

As we look for alternative ways to heat our home, biomass is becoming a popular choice with the use of multi fuel stoves. Corn is an excellent biomass power source because there is a large amount of energy in each kernel. When used to in a multi fuel stove, corn can produce as much heat as traditional pellet stove, but at a much lower cost.

Generally, using corn for heat will cost you half as much as oil, 30% less than coal and 70% less than natural gas. For more information on saving money on heating your home with a multi-fuel stove, contact St. Croix Stoves.

Advantages of Multi Fuel Stoves

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Multi-fuel stoves look similar to wood burning or pellet stoves. The fire is contained behind a glass door, and there is a flue or chimney for the smoke to escape. However, multi-fuel stoves, as the name suggests, can be used for burning different types of fuel and many people burn wood pellets as well as corn, cherry pits and wheat.

multi-fuel stoves are popular because the fuel they burn is renewable. The value in Multi-fuel stoves is their convenience and efficiency.

Advantages

A oves are popular because the fuel they burn is renewable. The value in multi-fuel stove has the flexibility of enabling you to burn the fuel that is most affordable and available where you live.

Multi-Fuel Stoves are Gaining in Popularity

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Multifuel stoves are fast becoming the new trend. With the prices for gas and electricity getting higher,multi-fuel stoves are the new alternative source of heat.

Over the last few years many modifications have been made to multi-fuel stoves making them easier to use, more modern and ultimately much more efficient and attractive.

Pellet Stoves Let You Go Green and Save Money

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.

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.
