Affordable heating fuel: Although the price of wood fuel varies considerably, it is often cheaper than other heating options.
A low-carbon option: The carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. The process is sustainable as long as new plants continue to grow in place of those used for fuel. There are some carbon emissions caused by the cultivation, manufacture and transportation of the fuel, but as long as the fuel is sourced locally, these are much lower than the emissions from fossil fuels.
Pellet stoves have very high efficiency. Combine this with it’s low power consumption and you can’t go far wrong. By slowly feeding in fuel automatically from the storage compartment it can maintain a constant flame which is monitored for maximum efficiency.
