    Pellet Stoves: Heat Your Home, Better!

    With heating oil prices on the rise, many cost-conscious consumers are turning to wood pellet stoves as a new source for heat. These units don’t rely on costly gas or oil to operate, but instead on wood pellets, which are typically comprised of recycled wood and paper. This allows for cost-stability and peace of mind that fossil fuels can’t provide.

    Pellet stoves are easy to operate and are much more efficient than ordinary wood stoves or fireplaces, resulting in steady heat and very little air pollution. In fact, according to the US Department of Energy, pellet stoves are the cleanest of solid fuel-burning residential heating appliances.

    Worried about finding a stove that will fit within your homes style or décor? Don’t be! Thanks to leading manufactures, these eco-friendly heating units are available in a wide range of styles and price-points to fit any ones style and budget.

    Take for example the Quadra-Fire Mt. Vernon Advanced Energy Pellet Stove. This beautiful, top of the line stove provides efficient heat and in addition to pellets, can burn shelled corn, sunflower seeds and wheat. The Quadra-Fire Mt. Vernon AE is approximately $4,699, including installation.

    For smaller spaces, we like the compact Harman P38. It is powerful and quiet and has an extra large hopper and ash pan for easy maintenance. It also comes in a variety of colors and options to fit many different home décor styles. It retails for about $2,999, including installation.

    You may also consider the Quadra-Fire Santa Fe Pellet Stove. This tough, little stove has a sleek, contemporary design and features a jam-free feed system that makes for easy operation. The Santa Fe is an affordable option, starting at about $2,799 with installation.

    For elegant design and unbeatable performance, we like the Harman XXV Pellet Stove. The automatic ignition and room sensor on this stove accurately maintains heat output and eliminates the warm/cold cycle associated with other brands. The Harman XXV is available in a wide variety of colors, so it can match any home décor and style. This model starts at around $4,299, including installation.

    Choosing a pellet stove as your new heat source will not only save you money now, but will provide your family with long term heating security that heating oil cannot.
