  • Advantages of Pellet Stoves

    Wood pellet stoves are becoming more and more popular for very good reasons.

    There are a number of great benefits to be enjoyed when you choose a pellet burning stove over any other fuel burning appliance:

     

    • Clean– Burning pellets produces far less carbon emissions in comparison to other fuels including oil, logs, and gas, thereby reducing your carbon footprint.
    • Efficient – Wood pellet stoves are becoming more and more energy efficient. Some of the more advanced systems have an efficiency rate of up to 95%, which is better than any alternative fuel burning heater. Wood pellets are considerably more economical than either oil or gas when producing the same heat output.
    • Steady Prices – Wood pellets are cheap to buy and the great thing is that unlike all other fuel types, they do not experience dramatic price fluctuations throughout the year. With more stable prices, it is easier to plan for the costs of having a pellet stove. They are also widely available across the country, so getting hold of pellets, even in an emergency isn’t difficult.
    • Suitable for those living ‘off the grid’ – Pellet stoves and pellet burners are a suitable choice for those who are living off the national grid. Although most pellet stoves use electricity to power a fan in the stove, people can also choose to use pellets in a burner that does not require electricity.
    • Simple to use – If you have ever used another form of heater, you will find that it is easy to make the switch from your old heater to a pellet stove. There is not a lot to their operation, so even if you don’t have the instruction manual for the pellet stove, you will find that you will be able to operate it with no problem.
    • Controllable – Pellet stoves are completely controllable thanks to heat settings and fan speed settings. Turning the heat down means that you will be able to use the pellets more slowly and turning the fan down will enable you to enjoy a more comfortable heat. If you are sitting in the same room as the pellet stove, you will be able to turn down the temperature so that the air is more pleasant.
