These high-efficiency heaters let you turn down the household thermostat while warming your rooms, providing ambiance, and reducing your energy bills. Wood pellet stoves resemble wood burning stoves and fireplaces, but the similarities end there. These stoves are electronically sophisticated appliances that offer an environmentally friendly and low-cost heating option for your home.
All wood pellet stoves require the same kind of fuel – the wood pellet. These pellets are the byproduct of sawmills and are made from recycled sawdust and wood shavings. Pellets are automatically fed from a storage hopper into a burn pot, creating a constant flame that needs no tending. Heat-exchange tubes send air heated by fire into the room and a convection fan circulates air through the heat-exchange tubes and into the room.
