wood pellet stove

The wood pellets prices and stoves are important to take into account when researching new ways of producing heat for your home.

How efficient are wood pellet stoves?

The idea of an efficient wood pellet stove often appeals to homeowners who are tired of paying high home-heating costs during long, cold winters. The initial cost of the stove might be a little high, but the reliability of fuel throughout the year compensates for these costs, making the wood pellets stove an efficient heating option.

By steadily feeding fuel from a storage container (hopper) into a burn pot area, it produces a constant flame that requires little to no physical adjustments. Today’s central heating systems operated with wood pellets as a renewable energy source can reach an efficiency factor of more than 90%.

Are there different types of Wood pellet stoves?

It is important to acknowledge that wood pellets available on the wide market are not the same.  Different pellets will have differing burning behaviours and performance levels.  If you have a pellet stove it is important to use pellets of the highest quality to minimise your maintenance costs and ensure the sustainability of your investment.

We encourage everybody to study well the existing types of stoves and based on your home, heating needs, and personal preferences to make a good decision. Once you choose your stove, we recommend using ENplus A1 wood pellets, preferably not imported from distant countries. This is why we are proud we can produce our pellet fuel locally, to minimise de risk of cross-contamination and dust.

Do you need a chimney for wood pellet stoves?

Wood pellet stoves do not need a chimney as the smoke can be vented out through a sidewall. This is very beneficial as it allows flexibility on installation and reduces installation costs. Many property owners find it very easy to install pellet stoves themselves.

What to do if you want to install a wood pellet stove?

If you’re interested in swapping to a biomass boiler and you need advice, call our office and our team will put you through your local representative or engineer and also help you with information regarding our wood pellets prices.

We deliver pellets directly to your home or business to be blown straight into your store.  If you have a smaller hopper integrated with your stove it might be better to order wood pellet bags from us.  These are delivered in 10kg bags which are easy to load into your hopper.
