What is a wood pellet stove?

Wood pellet stoves are  an excellent addition in reaching net zero by 2050. Wood Pellet stoves are eco-friendly alternatives as they are not fuelled by fossil fuels.

A Wood Pellet stove is efficient, convenient, and operated by wood pellet fuel. Wood pellet stoves produce little wood smoke and provide an exceptional amount of heat compared to open fires.

As technology changes, recent wood pellet stoves are now trendy home fittings with current styling, huge glass windows, and finished with ironstone covering in striking colors. As the look of pellet stoves has changed, so has the operations. Up-to-date biomass stoves may have the option of remote controlling for electronic ignition and temperature control making them safe, attractive, and easy to use.

How do I use a wood pellet stove?

What are the key advantages of wood pellet stoves? 

Cost-effective

Wood pellet stoves are flawless for providing supplementary heat between seasons. Wood pellets stoves avoid you having to restart the central heating at the beginning of winter and can be stopped earlier than expected.

Easy to use

All stove models have a thermostat so they switch off and on automatically. Some models also have advanced functions: programming, remote control, smartphone/internet control, and more making it easy to adjust without getting off your seat.

Excellent performance

The efficiency of quality wood pellet stoves can exceed 90% with only 10% of the energy contained in the pellets being lost in the chimney.

No need for a traditional chimney

Smoke is emitted to the outside by forced ventilation through an 80 to 120 mm tube which can be placed vertically or horizontally. This is a great addition for biomass stoves as they can be installed wherever best fits.

Carbon neutral

Wood Pellets are procured with the sawdust created from the wood processing industry. Pellet stoves are carbon neutral because the carbon released during combustion is equivalent to that absorbed by the tree during its growth. Per annum, Balcas Energy produces over 200,000 tonnes of wood pellets. This has a massive impact on the environment as our customers save almost 300,000 tonnes of CO2 (when compared to burning oil).

What is the difference between wood pellet stoves and wood stoves?

When it comes to wood pellet stoves, these burn environmentally friendly wood pellets, whereas wood stoves burn seasoned firewood. One of the main differences between wood stoves and wood pellet stoves is the type of fuel they require.

Why should you choose Balcas Energy wood pellets?

Many companies import wood pellets and then sell them as renewable fuels which can cause your biomass appliance problems. This makes it very important to know why we at Balcas Energy promote the importance of sustainable manufacturing of our wood pellets. As we produce wood pellets locally with high-quality material from Balcas sawmilling activities, our pellet fuel is 100% Carbon neutral.

Why does this matter?

  • Less CO2 – Shorter distances mean our carbon footprint is less than any other imported pellets, which can travel halfway around the globe.
  • The highest quality possible of your delivered wood pellet fuel – Buying from a sustainable manufacturer, who also delivers directly to your address, reduces the risk of cross-contamination.
  • Environment Friendly – Using green energy to make the wood pellets, by powering all our manufacturing activities within our CHP plant (Combined Heat and Power) and the sawmill plant.
