More are Using Pellet Stoves as Heating Costs Rise

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 13, 2012

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.”

Pellet Stoves are Popular for Home Heating

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 30, 2012

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.
