Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 28, 2014

With another blast of frigid temperatures in Worcester, you may be wondering how you can keep your heating bill under control.

There are plenty of ways to save money while heating your home. The most popular alternative heating method is with wood pellet stoves. They are small pieces of condensed wood that are stored in pellet stoves, and gradually fed into a fire.

Pellet stoves give you a constant flame, lots of heat, and requires little or no adjustments. They burn hotter than open fireplaces which means they give off more heat, and they are easier to install than wood stoves or gas stoves because they can be vented through any outside wall.

Pellets stoves are in high demand because they are easy to use, easy to maintain and easy to budget. Custom Insulation can help you decide what size pellet stove you need based on how much space you want to heat. Pellet stoves can heat an entire home, or they can supplement you oil or gas heating system. Additionally, pellet stove retailers can tell you how much pellets you need to buy in order to heat that space all winter.

For those who are using pellets, it’s important to use high quality pellets, they burn hotter and create less ash, meaning less pellet stove cleaning.

A quality pellet is low ash, low moisture, and is considered a premium pellet. The price of low quality pellets may seem attractive at first, but higher quality is better.

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 05, 2012

Are you looking for different, more efficient or perhaps greener ways to heat your home? Then think about pellet stoves. This type of stove burns pellets made from wood chips, bark, compacted sawdust and other organic materials. Some of the advantages to using wood-pellet stoves are their heating efficiency; they produce very little waste; they can be installed on any outside wall, even if there is no chimney; and they use inexpensive fuel.

Pellet stoves have an average efficiency rating of 80- to 85%. The pellets are burned completely and they hardly give off any smoke, so they only need a small pipe leading outside. Pellet stoves also produce very little waste. A 40-pound bag of pellets produces less than a cup of ashes.

Because they have higher combustion and heating efficiency than a wood stove, less air pollution is being produced.
