Pellet stoves are a marvelous way to heat your home. Pellet stove inserts are just a fireplace insert modified to work in a pellet stove. Pellet stoves, for the most part, are self igniting appliances and cycle themselves on and off by a controlled thermostat. Some of these type stoves can be equipped with a remote control for your convenience. In fact recent models have been created with computer systems that run diagnostic tests to help identify any problem that may arise.
You should be careful not to burn the lower quality wood pellet in your stove because this could damage the machinery in the long haul. Wood is not the only kind if fuel that is burnt in pellet stoves. Pellet stove pellets such as grain, corn, or seeds are also used as fuel in the stoves.
The pellet stoves are very efficient and burn cleanly, and create only a layer of fine fly ash as a byproduct. Of course this byproduct is determined by the grade of pellets used as the fuel.
Pellet stoves are equipped with a hopper, an auger system, two blower fans, an ash collection system called a firebox, several safety features such as heat sensors and a vacuum switch and a main control box.
There are several brand names of these stoves out there. Whitfield pellet stoves is one of the foremost brands. You also have Breckwell and Harmon that make an excellent product.
If you are looking for a way to quietly and efficiently heat your home you may well want to explore the pellet stove path.
