Advantages of Pellet Stoves

- Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Pellet stoves are the perfect way to enjoy a nice, cozy fire while increasing heat efficiency. They offer an alternative means for heating your house. Pellet stoves combine beauty with convenient, user-friendly operation, and powerful heating. And, are helping the energy conscious home owner reduce home heating bills and bring ambiance to their living space.

Pellet stoves are traditionally compared to the wood burning stove, because the heat they put out is similar, but many believe that pellet stoves offer some advantages over traditional wood stoves.

The main advantage 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, whereas wood needs to be stacked and hauled, and needs a large space to be stored. Pellets burn very hot therefore they create very little ash because they burn very efficiently.

Pellet stoves run on electricity. The hopper electronically feeds the pellets into the stove and 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 which is a huge advantage.

Overall pellet stoves can save people quite a bit of money in regions where heating costs are typically higher than in other parts of the country. To take your time making an educated decision on your home heating options this fall, call Fireplace Showplace today.
