Pellet stoves are progressively becoming more popular. More and more homeowners are acknowledging the efficiency of pellet stove inserts for heat. A pellet stove insert is a prefabricated heater that slides into your existing fireplace. This also lets you use a renewable form of energy, which makes it more energy efficient and more convenient.

The biggest advantage of using pellet stove inserts in Boston, MA is the ease of use. The pellet stove has a hopper where you pour in the pellets, which is automatically dispensed into the fire. They are very user-friendly, thanks to the automatic ignition, the power modulation and the fact that these stoves can be programmed with a thermostat. The efficiency of a pellet stove is 80% or more, which means it has a high efficiency than a traditional fireplace.

Pellets that are used for fuel inpellet stove inserts are made from forest or farm waste product such as compressed sawdust or agricultural crop waste. Using a renewable form of energy can help provide a market for materials that might end up in landfills. Therefore, pellet stoves are highly environmentally-friendly. Because pellets are CO2-neutral fuel, they burn cleaner than wood so you don’t have to worry as much about having a chimney fire.

Most homeowners don' t invest too much in chimney cap replacements and repairs even though they are fairly inexpensive. This is because most believe that they only serve as a decorative accessory for the chimney. However, the real purpose of the chimney cap is to protect your flue from foreign objects and animals that may enter the opening that can cause problems. Here are problems you may encounter if you don’t have a quality chimney cap installed:

Water Damage - If you left your chimney uncovered, rain, snow or ice can drop inside your chimney. This can cause cracks and crevices in its interior walls and eventually weaken the overall structure.

Blockage - Fallen leaves and animals can get inside the open chimney. This can cause clogs in which will lead to fire and carbon monoxide build up inside your house.

Fire Risks - Chimney cap prevents burning embers from going up and out of the chimney and landing on the roof or in nearby trees, which can potentially start a fire. Also, uncapped chimneys are a risk for downdrafts caused by strong winds. This can lead to smoke and fire inside the home.
