Efficiency And Economy
For many families, pellet stoves represent the ideal heating choice for several reasons. The first and foremost is that they’re efficient. Because of the way a pellet stove is designed, there is very little fuel waste. Unlike more traditional fireplaces, the fuel is fed little by little to the flame by a hopper. This not only ensures that the flame (and heat) is constant, but that pretty much all of the fuel is burned. Did you know that some pellet are between 75% and 90% efficient in terms of combustion efficiency? This efficiency means that when you decide to go with a pellet stove, you’re also choosing to go with economy. Greater combustion efficiency means that less fuel is wasted, and that can only be good for your wallet!
Pellet stoves are also a good choice for more environmentally conscious families too. Typically made from recycled materials, fuel pellets consist of sawdust, wood shavings, and nut shells depending on the brand. These materials are ground up, compressed, and extruded to produce fuel pellets instead of taking up landfill space. Even better, these tiny wood and biomass pellets are not subject to sales tax in the state of Pennsylvania!
Finally, because of how the pellets are constituted and their combustion efficiency, less ash and creosote is created. This makes pellet stoves less susceptible to chimney fires than fireplaces that use more traditional solid fuels such as cord wood.
