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.

Pellet Stoves have Many Advantages

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Pellet stoves offer an alternative means for heating your house. They are traditionally compared to the wood burning stove, because the heat they put out is similar, but there are those who believe pellet stoves offer some advantages over traditional wood stoves.

At the top of the list of advantages is the fact that pellet stoves are easy to load as compared to wood burning stoves. The pellets themselves are small and can be stored in a small space efficiently. Wood needs to be stacked and hauled, and needs a fairly large space to be stored. Pellets burn very hot so they burn very efficiently, because of this they create very little ash or waste.

The pellet stove hopper electronically feeds the pellets into the stove. The hopper can be programmed to evenly and consistently dispense the pellets, so in effect pellet stoves can be programmed to burn at an even rate and can remain at a consistent temperature over time. Many consider this the largest advantage because it allows pellet stoves to be very economical.

Overall pellet stoves can save people quite a bit of money in Massachusetts which is a region where heating costs are typically higher. If you are considering adding a pellet stove to your home, contact Custom Insulation.
