Benefits of heating with biomass
What is biomass? Stoves and stove inserts that heat with either wood or wood pellets are considered biomass heaters. Wood and pellets are renewable energy. Pellets are made from wood scrap and are a growing source of heat in Massachusetts. Biomass is desirable to homeowners because they are not fossil fuels, so homeowners are not dependent on fluctuating fuel prices.
Additionally, biomass heat means the money you spend on heating your home stays local. Most states don’t truck firewood over state lines and many New England states have their own pellet factories. If the pellets are made out of state, they often use wood and trees harvested right here.
Wood stoves and inserts and pellet stoves and inserts are a more economical way to heat your home as well. In the fall you place your pellet or firewood order, and you are done paying for your heat for the winter. No surprises, no fluctuating costs, no unbearable heating bills.
