Pellet Heat Can Save Thousands of Dollars in Home Heating Costs

A quiet revolution is taking place: heating with wood and wood pellets. Pellet heat ranges in application from residential pellet stoves and pellet furnaces, to institutional pellet furnaces heating schools and factories.

Fully automated pellet systems, bulk wood pellet delivery, and advanced technology pellet furnaces and boilers with engineered emissions controls, are steadily making inroads and on the cusp of mainstream acceptance.

In the winter, when oil prices are high and inches of snow have covered everything, filling an oil tank is a hard bill to swallow. When you have to do that several times every winter, it gets very expensive.

The answer: buy a pellet stove in the summer. In the summer there is time to do your research, time to weigh the pro’s and con’s of pellet heat, and there is no wait for installation.

As oil prices continue to rise ever winter, this will be one of your smartest home purchases.

Between the cost of the pellet stove and the cost of an average of two tons of pellets to heat your home all winter long, the cost of the pellet stove will pay for itself in savings in no time. In fact, by replacing oil heat with pellet heat, you will save thousands of dollars over the life of the stove.

The numbers speak volumes for how cost effective pellets stoves can be. There is a reason why pellet stoves and pellet furnaces are taking over home heating as well as industrial heating.
