Home Improvement With Alternative Energy Heating
Article from alternative-heating-info.com

The key to making a successful transition from conventionally fueled heating appliances to money saving alternatives is determining which alternative fuel is most abundant where
you live, and therefore the cheapest.

Despite recent price increases for corn, wood, and wood pellets resulting from crude oil speculation, they're still 50% less expensive than propane and electricity, and 35% cheaper than heating oil.

Faqs and Figures

  • Pellet heat is generated by burning wood pellets in either a pellet stove or pellet fireplace insert.

  • Wood pellets produce a consistent and economical heat.

  • Particulate emissions from a pellet stove are approximately 1.2 grams per hour, compared to the nationwide EPA regulations allowing no more than 7.5 grams per hour.

  • After burning wood pellet fuel, there is little ash left over, reducing the amount of clean-up work needing to be done. And, wood pellets produce virtually no creosote – a major cause of chimney fires.

  • Made of 100% wood sawdust with no additives, the sawdust in pellets is a manufacturing by-product otherwise destined for landfills.

  • Wood pellets were first introduced in the 1970s to help resolve the energy crisis.

  • Today, there are approximately 1 million pellet stoves and fireplace inserts used in homes throughout the United States and Canada.

  • There are in excess of 80 mills in North America that manufacture wood pellets and more than 23 manufacturers of pellet appliances (stoves, fireplace inserts and baskets).

  • A 40-lb bag of pellet fuel can provide up to 24 hours of solid heat.

  • A winter’s supply of wood pellets is about 100-150 bags – depending on climatic and lifestyle variations.
