Differences Between Wood Stoves and Pellet Stoves

Biomass heating systems are gaining more and more market share. This is due to its many advantages such as its high calorific power, an affordable price and working with wood, a sustainable fuel.

Consumers wishing to purchase a biomass stove to heat their home will have to choose between two main options: wood-burning stoves and pellet stoves. That is why, in this article, we wanted to explain the characteristics of each and their differences.

Features of a wood-burning stove

Wood stoves are heating appliances that uses wood as fuel. The wood stove has evolved substantially since its creation and nowadays you can find modern and innovative models that have high calorific power. Wood stoves are an affordable and ecological option, as they pollute much less than other conventional heating appliances.

At Ecoforest, we have three different models of wood stoves that stand out for their functionality, easy maintenance and high safety. In addition, they work with an environmentally-friendly fuel and have a minimal environmental impact. Ecoforest’s wood stoves, Eco 70/80/90, Ecoglass 70/80/90 and Arles , meet high quality standards and designs that adapt to the needs of our customers.

Characteristics of the pellet stove

Pellet stoves are heating appliances that use pellets as fuel. Pellets are an environmentally-friendly biomass fuel, economical and convenient to store, as they do not take up much space. Pellet stoves are one of the best heating systems currently available, which is why they have become so popular in recent years.

At Ecoforest, we have a wide range of pellet stoves of different sizes and powers. Air pellet stoves are those designed to heat the room in which they are installed. Within this type of stove, at Ecoforest we have several models whose power range goes from 12 kW to 14 kW.

There are also pellet stoves with a higher calorific value, designed to heat the whole house through ducts that connect all the rooms, such as ducted air stoves and hydro-stoves

Which is better, a wood or pellet stove?

Both wood stoves and pellet stoves are efficient heating systems with numerous advantages. Wood stoves stand out for having a higher calorific value than the pellet stoves, but wood takes up more storing space. On the other hand, pellets are a more affordable and environmentally-friendly fuel.
