How do you heat your home up? Have you ever considered a pellet stove? One major reason why pellet stoves are a good choice is that their fuel can be made from a wide range of organic matter, even food scraps and sawdust. This means that it is ideal for someone that is concerned with reducing waste and protecting the environment. Compared with other methods of heating, using a pellet stove is fairly cheap. Since the pellets usually come sealed tight, that also means that there is no concern that storing them in or near your home will attract termites like wood does.
It is necessary to have electricity for your pellet stove to operate properly, so it is a good idea to have a backup source of power in case there is a power outage. The back and sides of a pellet stove won’t get hot like other heaters do, so you don’t have to be as careful in their placement.
