A new breed of modern stove is now in vogue – meet the stylish, dependable and warm wood pellet stoves.
Many people are turning to clean-burning wood pellet stoves to heat their homes as an alternative to conventional log burning stoves.
Sales of house coal and wet wood in the UK will be phased out by the government from next year to cut pollution, encouraging the use of cleaner fuels.
Wood pellet stoves are a smokeless 21st-century heating solution – replacing old-fashioned, log-munching wood burning stoves. Heat your whole house – or just a room – and spread a background warmth around the house. Woodlets, mixed with the ultimate in modern stove technology, make for wonderful, naturally-warm rooms.
Wood pellet stoves are efficient and easy-to-use. They are safer, cleaner and produce less air pollution by efficiently and cheaply converting wood pellet biomass fuel to heat while giving off almost no wood smoke, helping to protect the environment. They produce very little creosote build-up in the flue and they do not require cleaning as frequently as conventional wood-burning stoves. The small amount of ash they do produce should be removed periodically but can be used as a garden fertiliser.
Installation is not expensive and they are very cheap to run
There are numerous state-of-the-art stoves on the market today all renowned for their reliability, efficiency and value for money. Turn your pellet stove on and off at the flick of a switch. They are totally programmable and thermostatically controlled, giving you the satisfaction of knowing that you are heating your home in the most environmentally responsible way using a low carbon, sustainable fuel.
Modern wood pellet stoves are stylish and contemporary with large glass windows with ceramic cladding which come in a variety of colours. Pellet stoves have remote controls for electronic ignition and temperature control making them safe and easy to use.
Old wood burning stoves don’t hold a candle to the efficiency of pellet-burning stoves. And the wood-fuel Woodlets are denser than the wood they are made from and contain less water because of the compression process. Wood pellets have less than eight per cent internal moisture. Regular wood, even dried, holds between 20 and 30 per cent internal moisture, meaning they can’t burn as hot as the dryer wood pellets.
Top-of-the-line pellet stoves have an overall efficiency rating higher than 90 per cent.
Pellet-burning stoves are designed with an internal hopper that will usually hold a day’s worth of fuel. Fill it in the morning and leave it for the rest of the day.
Which wood burning stove is more eco-friendly?
The clear winner is the pellet stove. They are inherently more efficient than wood burning stoves, emit less smoke and carbon dioxide – and are more straightforward to use. All you do is load them with Woodlets and away you go.
Choosing a stove and what to look for…
First, look at the size of the stove compared to the size of your room. You don’t need an enormous stove for a small house, so choose one that’s sized appropriately for the square footage you need to heat. A large stove might warm your house quickly, but you don’t want to waste fuel and heat inadvertently increasing your carbon footprint.
Keep in mind that the more efficient a stove is, the fewer emissions it will generate. These higher-efficiency stoves tend to be safer because they don’t produce creosote, which can create a fire hazard.
Finally, look at the efficiency of the stove. The higher the efficiency rating, the hotter it will burn and the more heat you will get for each unit of fuel.
