When it comes to eco-friendly heating alternatives, nothing beats a pellet stove. These highly efficient heating alternatives put out a lot of heat and run on a renewable, recycled fuel, known as wood pellets. Pellet stoves are extremely heat efficient and have some of the highest efficiency rates of any hearth product. These heating powerhouses can heat your entire home or can be used as a zone heater to reduce your energy use during the cold weather season. Pellet stoves do not need a chimney to operate. Instead, a vent pipe can be installed through the side-wall of your home or up through the roof if you are positioning the stove on an interior wall. Get all the beauty and warmth of a real flame without the hassle of splitting and chopping or storing firewood.
