Pellet Furnaces - A Better Way to Heat

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Home heating with wood pellet furnaces is a growing trend. Europeans have been using this technology for years and it is now beginning to catch on in the US. Why? Because Americans are interested in cost savings and a more environmentally friendly way of heating their homes.

Once you make the decision to heat your home with a pellet or multi fuel furnace, you can forget about rising heating costs and the price of oil. The cost of home heating has been going up for years, making homeowners interested in exploring their heating options; many have discovered pellet and multi fuel furnaces.

Pellet furnaces give homeowners a higher return on investment.  Pellets are cheap, easy to find, easy to store and easy to use, taking the stress out of heating. Multi fuel furnaces burn any of 6 renewable types of fuel, making them a dependable and economical alternative.

The Pro’s of Pellet and Multi Fuel Furnaces

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 06, 2013

If you have been considering an alternative way to heat your home, you have probably heard of pellet furnaces or mulit fuel furnaces. This is a more efficient and more environmentally friendly way to heat your home. Why is this becoming a popular way to heat?

Pellet furnaces are environmentally friendly - Wood pellet and multi fuel furnaces are environmentally friendly. They burn wood for fuel. The pellets are made from wood, or you can use cherry pits, corn, rye or wheat, or distilled grain.  

Heat output – A pellet furnace can heat your entire home more efficiently.

Efficient - Many wood pellet and multi fuel furnaces are upwards of 80% efficient. This means that more than 80% of the heat from the furnace goes to heating your home. Older furnaces can be as low as 60% efficient, this means you are paying to create heat you are not using to heat your home.

Less expensive to run - As well as being more efficient wood pellet and multi fuel furnaces are less expensive to run than traditional furnaces, especially if you're currently using oil. Pellets are around 30% cheaper than the oil needed to produce the same amount of heat.

Availability of wood pellets or multi fuel options  - You can fuel your furnace and heat  your home with the most cost effective fuel in your geographic area. These fuel options are also readily available and from domestic sources, which means they are much less expensive than gas or oil.

Incentives for Pellet Furnaces in New Hampshire

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.

More are Using Pellet Stoves as Heating Costs Rise

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.”
