Pellet stoves generally use compressed wood or biomass pellets as fuel, and these are fed into a burn-pot area. You can also use other kinds of fuel, like wood chips, seeds, and grains in certain types of stoves. Pellet stove flames do not need much physical adjustment, so it is a convenient and efficient source of energy. Pellets also burn very cleanly, so the smoke is not as damaging to chimneys or exhaust pipes as other kinds of smoke. For these reasons, we find that many homes and businesses prefer central heating systems that use pellet stoves.
