Pellets as a Fuel Source

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Biomass, a renewable energy option, allows us to reduce our dependence on oil and other fossil fuels. People usually think of wood when they think of renewable energy. Biofuel is not new, but we have started thinking more about it as we watch our energy bills rise and hear more about carbon footprints.

Different biomass fuels burn differently, but generally they generate the same heat. The variation comes from the various biomass appliances: pellet stoves, fireplaces and insertsPellet Stoves, inserts and fireplaces have variables that affect the way the pellets burn, which is what changes the heat output.

So how can we use biomass? Although burning logs saves in energy costs and is a form of renewable energy, the answer for many is pellets. Pellets burn much more efficiently, are easier to transport, and dispensing or feeding the fuel into the appliance is easier and efficient.
