Pellet Stoves Are Better for the Environment and Your Budget - Seekonk, MA

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 04, 2015

As the expenses for heating homes rise and the complications of climate changes increase, more and more homeowners are looking for an environmentally-friendly heating alternative that will also fit their budget. Due to the advances in technology, there are many more choices for homeowners to keep homes warm and comfortable during winter. However, not all are equal. While some heating options are best for new construction, some are ideally suited for retrofitting existing homes. One of these options is pellet stoves in Seekonk, MA.

If you are looking for a safer and cleaner way to heat your home, pellet stoves are a good bet because they use renewable energy as fuel. Pellets are made of compressed wood byproducts and other biomass materials. This means that there are less particulates in the smoke as it is released into the air so the waste going into the environment is greatly reduced. Using these free-standing pellet stoves reduces home energy costs, because pellet fuel is not expensive.

Heating with pellet stoves is more convenient when the temperatures drop and you want to stay comfortable and warm. It takes just a few minutes to start-up a pellet stove. The auger automatically feeds pellets into the burn pot as needed. All you need to do is fill the hopper daily. You no longer have to hassle with handling firewood and tending the fire.

Many homes can be heated almost entirely with a pellet stove. To find out more about pellet stoves for your home, visit The Fireplace Showcase.

Pellet Stoves are a Greener Alternative to Traditional Fireplaces and Wood Stoves - Providence, RI

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 26, 2015

Pellet stoves in Providence, RI are a budget- and environmentally- friendly approach to heating homes during the cold season. These stoves conveniently convert biomass to heat in order to warm a living area with minimal smoke particles and less ash, making them a greener alternative to traditional fireplaces and wood stoves.

The biomass products that serve as fuel for pellet stoves are made from renewable substances such as waste wood, logging leftover, and sawdust. Wood pellets are compressed and less expensive biomass fuel that are produced with low moisture content. This means that a high percentage of combustion efficiency is achieved; this means that most of the pellets are burned and turned into heat, leaving less ash than wood and emitting less particulates into the air.

Pellet stoves make your home cozy and comfortable while generating very efficient heat, these pellet stoves also fall well within the clean air standards. Pellets are sold in bags so they are easy to store and transport. Pellet stoves are easy to use. Fill the hopper with pellets each day, and the flame is automatically ignited. Additionally, pellet stoves can be placed against any outdoor wall. There is no need for a masonry chimney, which means that you can put a pellet stove in any room in your house.

Pellet Stoves have Advantages in Cost and for the Environment - Seekonk, MA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 05, 2014

Pellet stoves in Seekonk, MA serve as a supplemental or primary source heat in many homes during the winter which is much less expensive then heating with traditional fossil fuels. Pellet stoves look like wood stoves but rather than burning wood logs, they burn wood pellets which is made from wood scrap. Pellet stoves actually use recycled sawdust, wood shavings, corn shells, and other similar bio-mass waste thereby helping reduce waste in the environment while reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

Over time, pellet stoves can pay for themselves because you will save money on heating over the course of a few winters. Pellets are poured into the “hopper” and in many models can burn for an entire day or two. This means they require less work and maintenance than wood stoves as well.

The consistency of pellet fuel allows pellet stoves to generate heat at lower cost, with much less ash and less smoke. Once the pellets are loaded into the hopper, they are transferred to the heating chamber at a controlled rate. There is also a built-in thermostat that gauges the heat level keeping your home consistently warm.

Pellet stoves are available as either freestanding or as pellet stove inserts. For information on the right style and size pellet stove for your home, visit The Fireplace Showcase.
