Pellet burning products are hearth products that make the use of electronically-controlled blowers, combustion systems, and heat exchangers. In layman’s terms this means that pellet products burn fuel slowly, and release as much energy as they can from the wood pellets, and draw in cool air and release out as hot air.
Use this exclusive tool that visually displays the potential cost savings that are available by switching to a pellet heater:
Pellet Stoves – A freestanding units that are similar to wood stove, but burn a manufactured wood pellet made from sawdust. They also require electricity to operate.
Pellet Inserts – A pellet stove that is designed to be installed in an existing fireplace, masonry or factory-built. A few models are allowed to be installed as zero clearance units meaning they can be install with minimal clearances to combustibles.
Pellet Furnaces – A Pellet Furnace takes pellet fuel heating to its optimum level, operating automatically to give you warm, comfortable temperatures throughout your home. Simply fill the hopper with pellets and set the temperature dial on the wall mounted control to the desired setting. If heat is required, the fire will automatically light and burn at the proper rate to produce just the right amount of heat. If heating demand is reduced, the unit will reduce the fire. If no heat is required, the fire will go out and light again automatically if more heat is needed.
Pellet products are considered to be automated wood burners. They operate with an easy-to-use convenience while proving a rich, radiant and convection heat. To use a pellet product simply load a supply of pellets into the hopper and start the stove. Once the unit is operating, an automatic feed system delivers the wood pellets into the burn chamber. In newer units the ignition system is automatic increasing the convenience factor.
- They are relatively safer for families with children compared to traditional wood stoves. They use convective heat so the outlet at the back or top of a unit stays cool to the touch.
- They are very convenient to use and maintain. Unlike in a traditional wood burning stove wherein you have to chop wood every now and then to feed to it, pellet products don’t require their pellets to be prepared in any way. Thus, by using a pellet product, you are making the process or heating up your home less of a hassle.
- The exhaust pipe or chimney for a pellet product is much smaller and less expensive than a typical wood chimney and in most cases cam be install directly out the rear of the unit to the outside.
- Pellet products are "environmentally-friendly"
