Eco Friendly & Cost Efficient Pellet Stoves
If the green aspects of pellet stoves doesn't convince someone that they are a great choice for heating, the reduced cost of heating with one versus the cost of traditional heating appliances should. Depending on the size of the stove and its hopper capabilities, one can usually load enough pellets in it to last the entire day.
Doing so cuts down the amount of time spent maintaining the system. Although up to 120 pounds can be put into some models, such as the Vulcan V Series which have 55 pound and 120 pound hoppers, the cost of the pellets are so low it is possible to leave it on all day and spend only $4 or $5 on the fuel.
Many chain stores sell pellets by the ton. The cost per ton ranges from region to region, but look to spend between $200 and $230 per ton of pellets. The typical size bag is 40 pounds making loading easy and convenient. Part of the vast appeal of these appliances is because of the ease in storing the fuel.
Compared to wood burning stoves, they produce less ash. Gas and oil puts additional carbon dioxide into the air affecting global warming. The pellets are CO2 neutral, which can't be said for wood. Although there is advanced wood combustion technology available, it is far from being readily available or cost effective at this point.
Still wood burning is highly favorable over fossil fuels. Because they are CO2 neutral, tax credits are given in many countries for installation of these appliances.
Pellets, made from recycled sawdust which is greatly compressed, burn hotter as well as cleaner. Using pellets conserves trees and produce less smoke and ash. This is great news for people with allergies.
Fossil fuel, gas, is no longer sustainable or affordable. As of December 2009, it is projected by fuel experts that gas, fuel and electricity prices will increase by 50% over the next five years. With that in mind, the purchase of a pellet stove becomes even more appealing.
Some people scoff at the concept of global warming, but even those people can't argue the cost saving of these heat appliances.
