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.

Efficient and Beautiful Pellet and Mulit Fuel Stoves

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 03, 2013

We have a cold winter headed our way.  Over the last decade we had very few options to lower our heating bills. But today, as technology advances, more homeowners are looking for better, cheaper ways to heat their homes and stay warm. The cost of heating with oil, gas and electric is just too expensive.  

Wood pellet stoves and multi-fuel stoves give us a new, efficient way to heat our homes and cut down on our energy costs. Wood Pellet and multi fuel stoves have considerably more efficient heat output and can replace traditional ways of heating. Additionally, they add an attractive focal point to any room while doing it.

Heating with stoves has become very popular over the last few years, and pellet stoves are high on the list of favorite fuel types. As a result, pellet stoves and multi-fuel stoves have become more attractive and efficient over time, fitting into any home, any space and any décor.

The good news for consumers is that the pellet stove industry has had to remain very competitive, constantly updating, enhancing and improving the stoves on the market while keeping them affordable.

Depending on the size of the home and the pellet stove, homeowners can heat their whole home or they can effectively supplement their existing heating system, increasing their home’s warmth and their heating efficiency.  

With all the options for pellet and multi fuel stoves available, choose the right stove for your home and lifestyle. For more information on high quality, beautiful and highly efficient pellet and multi fuel stoves, contact St. Croix Stoves.

Pellet Stoves or Furnaces to Replace or Supplement Inefficient Heating this Winter

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 27, 2013

The Farmer’s Almanac says this winter will be “Cold.”  Home heating can put a big dent in your budget during the winter. But, in order to save money, you don't have to sit around wearing layers either. You can more efficiently heat your home without going broke to do it.

Most homes have one central heat source. A furnace that is fueled by gas, oil, coal, propane or electricity have been the most common options. But not anymore. Homeowners are starting to understand that pellet stoves and pellet furnaces are an efficient and economical way to heat in the winter.

In every home there is a place where people tend to congregate, the kitchen, family room, den, or great room. But sometimes, your central heating source does not heat your home evenly. Maybe your living room is the coldest room in the house in the winter. Turning up the heat is an inefficient way to get your favorite warmer. Now you have options.

Wood pellet stoves are a perfect option for heating one or two rooms of your home. If you want the cozy feeling your favorite room can offer, but you just are not warm enough a pellet stove is the perfect solution. A traditional open fireplace is inefficient, allowing most heat to go up the chimney. An open fire in an open hearth can even make a room colder! Pellet stoves are easy to use and force the heat out into your home. Better yet, you won’t be unnecessarily heating unused areas of your home.

If you have an outdated furnace that needs replacement, a pellet fueled furnace is worth taking a look at. They are an efficient and cheaper source of heat that can be used to heat your whole home more economically that an older furnace using fossil fuels. Pellet furnaces can actually be used to replace a furnace in a forced-air heating system fairly easily.

An old oil, gas or electric furnace can be replaced by a more efficient and environmentally-friendly central heating pellet furnace, which will produce the heat need to heat your home all winter for less money. And, they work in the same way as a normal forced-air system.

Pellet Stoves and Furnaces Taking Over the Northeast Corridor

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 15, 2013

A revolution is taking place across the Northeast corridor: heating with wood pellets. From residential wood pellet stoves and pellet furnaces, to institutional and industrial pellet heating of schools and factories, to college campuses.

Fully automated pellet stoves and furnaces of all sizes are steadily making inroads and are on the cusp of becoming very mainstream.

Winter is on the way, and for many, the answer to the cold is turn up the heat. The problem with that is that for blue collar families, employment can be cyclical. Families must budget money accordingly.  

When it comes time to fill up a 275 gallon tank, the heating bill is hard to swallow during a time of budgeting. When a family fills the oil tank up to 4 times in one winter, they can start talking about paying some bills rather than others.

The answer: buy a pellet stove. As the price of oil heads well above $3 a gallon, pellet heat is an economical option that is easily budgeted for and will pay for itself in just a couple of years.

The numbers speak for themselves. Figure in the cost of a pellet stove, and the cost for 2 tons of pellets to heat an average home. Consider that most homes will fill the oil tank 2.5-4times per winter. On the low side, oil is almost $3000 to heat an average home in one winter.

The numbers speak volumes for how cost effective pellets stoves can be.

It is no wonder why universities, factories, and commercial buildings are slowly switching to wood pellets as a source of heat and energy? It's because it saves money.

Benefits of Pellet Stoves Over Wood Stoves

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 06, 2013
Pellet stoves make low-smoke and are easy on the environment, but what exactly makes them different from wood burning stoves?

Wood pellet stoves are generally smaller, and the bags of pellets are about the size of a bag of mulch. This makes pellets easy to store and transport. Pellet stoves are also easy to use; you just fill the stove’s hopper with pellets and push the igniter to start the fire. Depending on the size of your stove’s hopper, it may only need to be loaded once a day.
 
The fire is contained in a heat box inside the pellet stove so there is a minimum of smoke. This also keeps the outside of the stove cool. Pellets create considerably less ash than firewood and they also create less creosote, which is the most common cause of chimney fires.
 
Wood pellets are made from recycled materials and they have very low moisture content. Because they are so dry, pellets burn hotter and cleaner than wood burning stoves. Wood pellet stoves also emit fewer pollutants than traditional wood fireplaces. Many environmentalists also consider pellet stoves to be carbon neutral. Wood pellets are also inexpensive. You can purchase them in small quantities, versus the costs of purchasing a cord of firewood, or you can buy them by the ton.

Pellet Heat Can Save Thousands of Dollars in Home Heating Costs

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, June 12, 2013

A quiet revolution is taking place: heating with wood and wood pellets. Pellet heat ranges in application from residential pellet stoves and pellet furnaces, to institutional pellet furnaces heating schools and factories.

Fully automated pellet systems, bulk wood pellet delivery, and advanced technology pellet furnaces and boilers with engineered emissions controls, are steadily making inroads and on the cusp of mainstream acceptance.

In the winter, when oil prices are high and inches of snow have covered everything, filling an oil tank is a hard bill to swallow. When you have to do that several times every winter, it gets very expensive.

The answer: buy a pellet stove in the summer. In the summer there is time to do your research, time to weigh the pro’s and con’s of pellet heat, and there is no wait for installation.

As oil prices continue to rise ever winter, this will be one of your smartest home purchases.

Between the cost of the pellet stove and the cost of an average of two tons of pellets to heat your home all winter long, the cost of the pellet stove will pay for itself in savings in no time. In fact, by replacing oil heat with pellet heat, you will save thousands of dollars over the life of the stove.

The numbers speak volumes for how cost effective pellets stoves can be. There is a reason why pellet stoves and pellet furnaces are taking over home heating as well as industrial heating.

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.
