Wood pellets are manufactured from the sawdust and end cuts, produced in the lumber manufacturing process, that would have otherwise been waste material. Wood Heat evaluates various manufacturers to offer the best quality pellets. BTU's vary only slightly from brand to brand, but ash content, length consistency, and impurities may vary greatly. Impurities increase "klinkering" or "caking" of ash in the burn pot. There is a huge difference between 1% ash and 0.25% ash.
In addition to being stylish and efficient, pellet stoves are also considered to be a carbon neutral heat source. There has never been a better time to invest in a pellet stove or fireplace insert. Wood Heat carries Pellet Stoves and Fireplace Inserts from Quadra-Fire, Heatilator, and Ravelli. Stop in and see them burn!
