What is a pellet stove?

Pellet Stoves Are A Good Option 

Most people know that wood-burning and gas-burning units are options if they’re looking for a new heating appliance. But pellet-burning units can be worth considering too — they offer a lot of the benefits of wood and gas, combined.

Whether you’re looking for a bright and arresting, modern-looking appliance or something more classic and woodsy cabin-esque, Beach Stove And Fireplace has a pellet stove that’ll appeal to you. And if you’re not familiar with the ins and outs of a pellet stove, here are some details to think about:What Is a Pellet Stove - Westhampton Beach NY- Beach Stove and Fireplace

The Vibe Of Wood, The Convenience Of Gas

It’s hard not to love a classic wood-burning stove — it’s what comes to mind when we think about sitting by a fire. But using wood involves a fair bit of effort, between gathering, stacking and storing wood and making and tending the fire each time you use the stove. Pellet-burning appliances burn wood, essentially, but the experience is different — you’ll load a supply of fuel into your stove, and an electric hopper will feed the pellets as needed to keep a consistent burn.

The pellets are largely made out of waste materials (sawdust, for the most part), so they’re a great option for people who keep a focus on using renewable, earth-friendly materials in their home. Pellets also tend to be a really affordable fuel choice.

While pellet-burning stoves aren’t 100 percent as effortless as using gas, they’re really close. Beyond refilling the fuel and a little cleanup, a pellet-burning stove more or less does the work for you. You’ll enjoy the vibe of a wood fire with much less mess and work. And pellets don’t take up a ton of space, so you get that benefit as well.

If You’re Looking For Efficiency, Pellet Stoves Deliver

Pellet-burning stoves like the ones Beach Stove And Fireplace offers are designed with a focus on high efficiency — they’re produced to work with a very specific fuel-to-air ratio that keeps a consistent burn, leads to more complete fuel combustion and results in lower levels of byproducts, including smoke and other emissions. That efficiency means lower levels of creosote in the chimney, too, which means a safer chimney system.

From an environmental standpoint, pellet-burning stoves bring a plus, too. The Environmental Protection Agency says that, “Pellet stoves are typically among the cleanest wood-burning heating appliances available today and deliver high overall efficiency.”
