There are alternatives to heating your home without compromising warmth, comfort and convenience. Pellet stoves are very efficient in keeping entire homes warm even on very cold days.

Pellet stoves look like wood burning stoves. As well as being efficient and using renewable energy, this is where the similarities end. Pellet stoves are actually far more efficient than wood burning stoves. As a result their popularity is increasing.

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.

As Warm as a Wood Stove, But Easier and More Efficient

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 14, 2011

There are many home owners who want a fire, but the hassle of stacking fire wood, lighting a fire, and then keeping is lit is too much for many. Fortunately for them, pellet stoves came along.  A pellet stove is very effective and practical, it is also the perfect addition when you want to cut down on your heating expenses.

Pellet stoves look like wood burning stoves. But that is where the commonalities end. Pellet stoves are far more efficient and secure so are becoming increasingly popular.

What sets pellet stoves apart from an ordinary fireplace is the fact that it uses convection technology to heat up living space.
 
Basically, it draws cool air from the room into the firebox. This helps make the fire even hotter and that heated air is sent out into the room. But the outside of a pellet stove never becomes hot, which is perfect for families with kids or pets.

Pellet stoves also have a thermostat which is perfect for use during the night. You can program the thermostat so that the pellet stove operates at the lowest speed. You will use minimal pellets, stay warm and the stove will operate at its most efficient.
