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

5 December 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.
