Three Benefits of Using Premium Grade Wood Pellets in Your Wood Stove

Tuesday, 31 May 2016 21:11

Pellet wood stoves deliver many advantages over conventional wood-burning fireplaces and wood stoves, including better efficiency and affordability. But using premium grade wood pellets optimizes the design and function of your pellet wood stove helping to deliver even more advantages. Check out these three benefits and see how many more you can discover.

Premium Pellets Create Less Ash

The amount of ash created by wood pellets is determined by the makeup of the pellet. For instance, standard pellets contain higher amounts of tree bark, which creates more ash. Most standard wood pellets provide about 3% ash content, while premium pellets range from 0.3% to 0.7%. Not only will this result in a cleaner stove, but it also leads to the second benefit.

Premium Pellets Produce More Heat Per Pellet

As premium pellets are produced with little to no tree bark, this fuel produces very low levels of ash and higher levels of heat. A clean burn always creates better efficiency. This results in less build up in the chimney and more heat per pellet, lowering the cost of heating with wood pellet stoves year after year.

Premium Pellets Provide Consistency

Quality made premium wood pellets can be burned in stoves designed for both standard and premium. Stoves rated for standard pellets have a greater ash tolerance, but run very well on premium pellets. And these pellets also provide a consistent experience in every burn. Due to higher levels of quality control at the manufacturing end, a premium pellet made from tested logs burns the same for each use. Pellets made from untested and unverified byproducts, such as demolition materials, cannot offer the same consistency and will likely frustrate consumers.

Trust your home heating to pellet wood stoves and take advantage of the various benefits. Run that pellet wood stove with premium wood pellets to get the optimum experience with a cleaner burn and consistent quality.
