How Do Wood Pellet Stoves Work?

Wood pellet stoves are a type of biomass stove that use compressed wood pellets as fuel. This type of stove burns compressed wood pellets as opposed to traditional logs of wood. 

Essentially, the pellets are loaded into the stove’s hopper and then automatically fed into the fire chamber, where they are ignited and burned to produce heat. The heat is then distributed throughout your home, making it warm and comfortable on those cold winter evenings.

What are the Advantages of Wood Pellet Stoves?

There are several advantages to choosing a wood pellet stove for your home. First of all, these stoves are highly efficient, meaning that they can produce a lot of heat using relatively little fuel. 

In fact, our novel heat exchanger design and clean combustion technology at Island Pellet Stoves makes our Lundy pellet stoves achieve high efficiency and low emission levels that surpass the Ecodesign standards. 

As a result, our wood pellet stoves are environmentally friendly. And, as pellets are made from waste wood materials, they do not contribute to deforestation. Additionally, our wood pellet stoves are easy to use and maintain, and can provide a cosy and comfortable atmosphere in your home.

How Do I Choose the Right Wood Pellet Stove?

When choosing a wood pellet stove, there are several factors to consider. These include the size of your home, the layout of your living space, and your individual heating needs. 

It is important to choose a stove that is the right size for your home, as one that is too small will not provide enough heat and one that is too large will be inefficient and waste fuel. At Island Pellet Stoves, we can advise you on the best pellet stove for your home’s needs. 

What Does Installation and Maintenance Involve?

Wood pellet stoves require professional installation to ensure that they are safe and efficient. It is important to have a certified installer, who can oversee the installation with the utmost care and professionalism from start to finish. 

Additionally, regular maintenance and cleaning is necessary to keep your stove in good working condition and to ensure that it operates safely and efficiently. Our stoves offer easy ash emptying, making it even easier to keep your stove looking great all year round. 

How Much Does it Cost?

The cost of a wood pellet stove ultimately varies depending on the size and model you choose. While they may be more expensive than traditional heating options like gas or electric, they are often more cost-effective in the long run due to their high efficiency and lower fuel costs.
