For thousands of years, people have burned wood for heat. From campfires to fireplaces, people love the idea of a wood fire heating their house. But wood-burning appliances and fireplaces may emit large quantities of air pollutants. Wood smoke contains hundreds of chemical compounds including nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, organic gases, and particulate matter, many of which have adverse health effects. In many urban and rural areas, smoke from wood burning is a major contributor to air pollution.
Because of so many adverse effects wood burning for home heating has since rebounded with a newer method of heating; pellet burning. If you don’t already use this method, here are some reasons why you should consider using wood pellet heating for your house.
WHAT ARE PELLET STOVES?
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. In a time when environmental awareness is at the forefront and families are keeping a close eye on their finances, wood pellet stoves have become all the rage.
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. They are eco-friendly, cheap and easy to manufacture. Plus, they have a very low pollution rate.
WHAT DOES A PELLET STOVE OFFER YOU?
Pellet burning has a lot that it can offer a home owner as an alternative to oil heating.
● Ease of use. A pellet stove is easy to load, and easy to maintain. Most stoves will take about 2 bags of pellets a day (which is about 80 pounds). The pellets are loaded into the machine and automatically fed through an auger into the flames. This allows for a smooth, consistent burn all day, with very minimal involvement.
● Environment friendly. They boast an impressive efficiency rating. This means more of your moolah is being converted to heat, which is what you’re looking for! Since we’re burning the pellets, we’re also burning off a lot less of a chemical called creosote. Creosote is used to treat wood to keep it from drying out. Since the pellets we use are dried to begin with and tightly packed, a lot less creosote is used, and subsequently released.
● Money saving. No matter which way you slice it, pellet burning is going to come out cheaper than oil. The upfront investment of a pellet stove may seem a bit hefty, but the long term investment is going to save you money in the winters to come. The energy cost from running the machine is also very minimal, and guaranteed not to put a dent in your electric bill.
