What are wood pellets?

Pellets are small, tightly-compacted wood products that can be burned in a pellet burning appliance, such as a stove or fireplace insert. They’re manufactured at nearly 100 mills in North America, and created by compressing sawdust remnants from the lumber industry, furniture and flooring manufacturing, and from forestry by-products.  Pellet fuel is also made from other agricultural waste.


How are wood pellets “green”?

People who heat their homes with wood pellets are using a clean, carbon-neutral renewable fuel that emits extremely low particulates into the atmosphere. Wood pellets contain nothing but wood. Being carbon neutral means that they close the loop of new carbon stored by trees in high efficiency heating systems without exposing the older stored carbon of fossil fuels, giving them a bigger “bang for the buck” both monetarily and ecologically.


How much will I save over traditional heating fuel by using wood pellets?

It depends on your current heat source, your climate, the size and heat loss of your home, and how warm you like your home to be.  Many of our oil and propane heating customers have cut their annual home heating costs in half during the highest petroleum prices this summer.  As some energy prices dip again, it’s a reminder that many traditional heat methods are hardwired to the crisis of the season.  Choosing a heat source is a long term decision and wood pellet heat is proving to be the most stable, and will not only save you money, but provide long term heating security.

Pellet Furnaces & Boilers

A pellet furnace or boiler can be used in conjunction with your existing central heating system. These more utility styled heat systems have larger fuel storage hoppers designed to hold several days use of fuel. They are normally installed next to your existing furnace or boiler with your existing heating system set up to use the pellet system as the primary heat source, and your existing furnace or boiler as the backup system set to come on if you were away and your pellet system ran out of fuel.
