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

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 09, 2012

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.

Biomass as a Fuel Source for Multi Fuel Stoves

As we attempt to reduce our dependence on oil and other fossil fuels, Biomass is one of our renewable energy options. Biomass refers to organic materials which can be used as a fuel source in multi fuel stoves.

When thinking of biomass, people usually think of wood first, but wood is a small part of biomass fuel potential. Straws and grasses, animal waste, seeds and plants can also be used as biofuel. Anything that can burn and decompose can be used as a biofuel. Biofuel is not new, but with the increase in popularity of multi fuel stoves, concern about carbon footprints and as we watch our energy bills increase, homeowners have started thinking more about it as a viable option.

Different biomass fuels burn differently, but generally each biomass in a compressed form, such as pellets, has a similar heat value, meaning they generate the same heat. The variation comes from the various biomass burners, such as pellet stoves or inserts or multi fuel stoves which have variables that affect the way bio fuels burn, such as changes in ash content, air intake, and corrosive effects.

So how can we use biomass? Biomass is clean-burning and renewable energy. Based on what’s affordable and available, you can choose which fuel you’ll use to heat your home— in a responsible way.

Bio fuel, burns much more efficiently, is much more practical to transport, and dispensing or feeding the fuel into the appliance is easier and efficient as well. With a compressed and uniform material, the fuel can be used in automated combustion systems such as multi fuel stoves.
