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.

Reasons to Switch to Pellet Stoves for Heat

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 19, 2013

If you heat your home with oil, gas or electricity, your home heating costs have only been going up over the years. Fossil fuels prices are subject to uncontrolled environmental factors which make it impossible to budget for your home bills.
 
With pellet heat, not only is your home heating more efficient, it is more affordable and the prices for pellets won’t go up as winter goes on.  If you're looking to save money, consider heating with a pellet stove. There are so many benefits that heating with pellets can bring.

Here are some things you should know about heating with wood pellet stoves and furnaces.

Good for the environment. Wood pellet stoves use wood waste, like sawdust, that is turned into pellets. Wood pellets are a renewable energy.

Lower heating bills. Heating with pellet stoves will save you money on your heating bills.

Efficient. Pellet stoves are very efficient with a rating of more than 80%. St Croix pellet stoves are over 83% efficient.  With this efficiency you will get a lot of heat for the pellets you use.

Durable. Pellet stoves are very popular and are built to last. Your new pellet stove can give you a lifetime of less expensive, efficient heat.

Availability of pellets. Wood pellets are readily available. The price will not fluctuate during one winter, and you will always know what you are going to spend. If tow pallets are going to heat your home for a winter, you know that is all you need, and you can buy them at any time knowing that that is a fixed cost for the rest of the winter.

A pellet stove will cost you less to run, they are attractive and they good for the environment. In fact, right now there is even a federal tax credit of up to $300 for your new pellet stove purchase, making it the perfect time to buy.

Ae you considering a pellet stove to heat your home this winter? If so, here’s what you need to about wood pellet stoves, and whether the money-saving and efficiency claims are really true.

Automatic

Pellet stoves from St Croix Stoves are fully automatic. This means that all you have to do is fill them with pellets. You won’t need to light it yourself, or remember to let it die out if you are leaving for a while. You’ll also be able to wake up to a warm home without having to light the fire.

Fully programmable

Modern wood pellet stoves often take advantage of the latest technology and have display panels, and are fully programmable. You can set your stove to a thermostat and you can set it to go off and on when you want.

Ideal for homes

Pellet stoves provide enough heat for most homes. Be sure when purchasing a pellet stove you know how much square footage you want it to heat.

Attractive and stylish

You’ll soon find that modern wood pellet stoves are available in attractive and stylish designs and trims. You’ll be able to find something that blends in with your decor, or perhaps you’ll want your stove to be the focal point of the room.

Large capacity hopper

Choosing a wood pellet stove with a large capacity hopper will mean that you don’t have to fill it as often, so you can enjoy the fire and heat provided by your pellet stove, with less work.

Storage

When stored in a dry environment, you can keep your pellets indefinitely. They stack and are easy to store and transport.

Efficient

A pellet stove is likely to be over 90% efficient, and so will provide you with much more heat and hot water than you would expect.

Easy to clean and maintain

Many stoves have a self-clean feature, so that you don’t need to get your hands dirty keeping your pellet stove in good working order. You’ll need to empty the ash pan in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, but that should only take a few moments a week.

Wood pellet supply

Wood pellets and multi fuel pellets are easy to find. There are many different suppliers, and some even offer next day delivery, and fixed price contracts for several years, so that you will have the peace of mind knowing that you can get the wood pellets you need when you need them.

Value for money

If you’re currently using oil or LPG for your heating, then you’ll be able to save a considerable amount on your energy costs when you switch to wood pellets. Your pellet stove will soon start to pay for itself.

With cheaper fuel, and a more efficient heating system, perhaps now is the time to get a wood pellet stove installed to provide your heating and hot water.

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.”
