Getting to know Pellet Stoves: Everything You Want to Know

Pellet stoves are a popular heating method for homes and businesses. They offer many benefits over other methods, but they also come with some disadvantages. In this blog post, we will talk about what pellet stoves are, how they work, the cost of installation and more!

Part I: What is a Pellet Stove?

A pellet stove is an appliance that you can install in your home or business to provide heat. They are fueled by pellets, which are small pieces of compressed biomass and sawdust. When the pellets go into the burn pot, they ignite, creating a clean burning fire that is distributed by a heat exchanger process and convection fan.

Part II: How much will it cost to install a pellet stove?

The cost of installing a pellet stove will vary depending on the company that you choose to install it. If a professional is installing the stove, they will come out with an estimate of how much it will cost for labor and materials. A typical installation can cost a little as a few hundred dollars, or as much as a thousand or more. The installer will also give an estimate on the cost of pellets, which depend on where you live in each country.

Part III: Is installation difficult?

Installation can be easy or difficult based off of where the pellet stove needs to be placed, and how it will be vented. The venting system is typically the hardest part of installation, and it usually needs to be done by a professional. Your installer will make sure that your stove has an efficient design for the type of location you have chosen.

Part IV: How does a pellet stove work?

A pellet stove works in two ways--the first way is by burning pellets inside the stove, creating radiant heat, and the second way is through convection. A pellet stove will typically have two fans. One for combustion, which supplies the fire with oxygen rich air, and one for heat convection to circulate the heat into the room. Both fan speeds can be adjusted with thermostatic controls on the panel. An auger will steadily feed the fire with pellet fuel from the hopper.
