Pellet Stoves

Pellet stoves burn tightly compact pellets made from recycled sawdust and wood shavings so it burns cleaner than firewood, uses up waste wood and, like regular wood, uses up carbon when its source trees grow. Pellets are relatively expensive and burn times are longer so they’re often more cost efficient than regular wood, but if you don’t have a source nearby, restocking may be less convenient. Pellet stoves also require electricity to operate the feeder so a pellet stove is not a source of heat when power goes out.
