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.

Homeowners are Choosing Pellet Stoves

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 26, 2012

A lot of homeowners are thinking about installing pellet stoves to stay warm this winter, and for good reason: They burn cleanly, produce tons of heat, and require little maintenance. And people who own pellet stoves absolutely love them.

A pellet stoves is a heating appliance that’s similar to a wood stove, but instead of burning firewood, it burns compressed hardwood pellets that are considered carbon-neutral.

Pellet Stoves

Here’s how a pellet stove works: You pour pellets into the storage hopper located at the top. An electric auger delivers the pellets from the hopper to the burn chamber. Sensors within the stove monitor the fuel supply and tell the auger when to drop a new pellet. It will put in just enough pellets to keep the fire burning small but extremely hot. There are never more than a small handful of pellets in the burn chamber at any one time.

A pellet stoves has a combustion blower that pulls outside air into the stove through a fresh-air vent and then blows out smoke and fumes through a stainless-steel exhaust vent. There’s also a convection blower that draws room air into the stove and blows heated air into the room through a series of heat-exchange tubes. The stove will automatically deliver heat, based on the thermostat setting. All you need to do is keep the hopper filled with pellets.

There are two basic types of pellet stoves: freestanding models and pellet stove inserts that fit into existing fireplaces. And while pellet stoves are typically installed as a supplement to the home’s primary heating system, that doesn’t mean they can’t heat your entire home if you want it to.

Pellet stoves burn so hot and clean that there’s very little ash left behind, especially compared with woodstoves. The owner usually has to empty the pellet stove’s ash pan just once a week, even if the stove is used every day. And pellets produce virtually no creosote, which is a major cause of chimney fires.
