Concerned about your energy consumption and your carbon footprint? A pellet stove insert is the perfect heating appliance for you. The pellets that fuel these appliances are made from recycled wood scraps, so you are using a renewable source of energy. In addition, you are also helping to provide a market for wood shavings that would have ended up in a landfill. These wood pellets also burn cleanly and produce few emissions that pollute the environment.

Increased Energy Efficiency

According to HouseLogic, pellet stoves have energy efficiency ratings of between 78 to 85 percent. This means you will get more heat with less money and fuel. Some models will even provide a couple of days worth of heat from one load of the feeding hopper.

Economical Heat

As we mentioned above, you spend less money on heating bills when you use a heating appliance with a high energy efficiency rating to heat your home. You can save quite a bit of money when you heat your home with a pellet stove insert.

Ease of Operation

When heating your home with a pellet stove insert, load the hopper with pellets and turn it on. Now you easily have your fire! Many models come with a thermostat so you can set to keep your home comfortable all day long. You can even adjust the amount of heat provided with a remote control from your couch!
