What should you know before buying a pellet stove?

Pellet stoves are one of the most innovative heating systems on the market, because they work in a very efficient way thanks to a clean and ecological fuel: pellets. If you have not heard of this system before, in today’s article we explain its benefits and tell you what you should look out for when buying one.

What is a pellet stove and how does it work?

Pellet stoves are one of the most efficient heating systems available today. These stoves heat one or more rooms through the combustion of pellets, a material with low carbon emissions and high calorific value.

Pellets are an environmentally friendly fuel made from pressed wood sawdust. This fuel is very economical and, as they are so small, they take up very little space in the home and last for a long time. In addition, it is a fuel that offers high performance.

The use of pellets as a fuel makes pellet stoves an economical, environmentally-friendly and highly efficient heating system. Within the range of pellet stoves, there are three types:

Air stoves: These stoves heat the room where they are installed by expelling hot air to the outside through a fan.

Ducted air stoves: These stoves transmit heat through ducts previously installed in the house, which allows them to heat several rooms at the same time.

Hydro-stoves or thermo-stoves: Pellet hydro-stoves are an innovative system designed by Ecoforest that allows you to heat all the rooms in your home effectively, economically and comfortably.

What you should bear in mind when buying a pellet stove

All pellet stoves have a series of characteristics in common, such as their high performance, their ecological fuel and their economic price. When choosing which pellet stove will best suit your home, you will have to look at the characteristics that distinguish them and see which one is best suited to your type of home.

Some pellet stoves are easier to install in certain homes, such as single-family homes. This type of home already has an exhaust pipe and, if you want to renovate it, you do not have to ask for a permit. On the other hand, if your home is part of an appartement block, you will have to request the approval of all the neighbours in order to install an exhaust pipe. The type of house also influences the storage of pellets: a small flat can store one or two bags of pellets and a spacious house can store much more.

Another important thing to consider is how easy it is to buy pellets in your area. If you have to go to a distant place to get your pellets, you should also consider the transportation costs. It may be worth buying in bulk to save on travel costs. But this is not something to worry about, as pellets are small, allowing for long-time storage of large quantities without taking up too much space.

You should also consider the size of the surface to be heated. If you want to heat a single room, you will be better off with an air stove. On the other hand, if you want to heat the whole house, you should consider whether to buy a ducted air stove or a hydro-stove. You should also consider frequency of use: if we are talking about your permanent residence, you will use it every day, but, if it is a weekend home, you will only use it at specific times. If you will only use the house for short period of times, it would be a good idea to choose a pellet stove that can be switched on and off remotely, as Ecoforest pellet stoves, so that you can manage their operating times remotely.

It is also important to consider the environmental impact of pellet stoves. If you are a person who cares about the planet, pellet stoves may be your best option to acclimatise your home. These stoves use renewable and sustainable energy, which is also much cheaper than fossil fuels. They are also carbon₂ neutral, so if you choose a pellet stove instead of conventional systems, you are contributing to the reduction of your carbon footprint. Bear in mind that pellet stoves offer many advantages over other heating systems, so it is worth taking your time to choose the ideal one for you.
