As we go deeper into winter, it brings with it colder weather. Due to rising energy costs, many are looking at alternative power sources, and one of those is pellet stoves.
A pellet stove is most commonly fueled by different types of materials that would otherwise go to waste. It could be food waste, sawdust or wood shavings that are formed into pellets.
Since these are usually materials that are discarded, it is very beneficial for the environment to use them in this way.
The pellets are compacted which makes transportation and storage much more efficient.
A pellet stove radiates most of its heat from the front of the unit, so it is not necessary to have it as far away from the walls as you would a regular unit.
Since the stove uses electricity for its function, if there was to be a power outage, you would need a generator or a similar backup for power.
