Pellet fuel appliances burn compressed pellets usually made of wood, but in some cases, from other organic materials.
Pellet inserts can be more convenient to operate than wood inserts, and as with modern wood inserts, they produce very little air pollution. In fact, pellet inserts are among the cleanest solid fuel, residential heating appliances you can buy. More advanced models have a small computer and thermostat to control the feed rate of the pellets controlling the heat output. Pellet inserts meeting EPA standards are usually in the 70% to 83% efficiency range. Pellet inserts have significant heating capacities that can range between 8,000 and 90,000 Btu per hour and may be capable of operating for up to 3 days on a single load of pellets.
Our experts can help you choose the pellet insert that best suits your needs and budget.
