How to Buy a Pellet Stove

When comparing BTU output, make sure you know how much heat each unit can deliver to a room. Keep in mind that BTU output is not the total heat output – the amount that goes out the chimney is not included. Another consideration is location, which may have an effect on efficiency. The openness of your house, how much insulation your home has, and whether you need supplementary heat is all factors that may impact efficiency. Make sure to discuss these factors with the dealer you are considering.

A pellet stove can be manually or automatically lit, and a combustion blower draws outside air into the stove. A convection blower sends heated air back into the room through heat-exchange tubes. These features make it an ideal choice for mobile homes. If you live in a cold climate, a pellet stove may be the ideal heat source. If you live in an apartment, the heat from a pellet stove can be a great way to save money while still enjoying the benefits of home heating.

While choosing between a freestanding stove and a fireplace insert, you should be aware of the venting requirements. A freestanding stove needs ventilation through the roof or wall. A fireplace insert will save space and save you from construction. Additionally, you should consider purchasing a stove from a local shop, as they are more likely to offer support and troubleshooting. You can also ask for a quote from the installer if you are uncertain of your options.
