Wood and Pellet Stoves Offer Beauty and Convenience
September 4th, 2014 by Tevis Propane
Nothing beats the beauty of a wood stove. Except maybe the convenience of a pellet stove.
Wood stoves offer great rustic appeal and spread a blanket of warmth around the room. They are perfect for individuals who love the sound and smell of burning logs in the winter. A wood stove is a great way to save money on your heating costs! Turning down the whole-house thermostat while using the wood stove can save you a bundle. Firewood can be found relatively cheap, compared with other heating sources.
Pellet stoves have become more popular in the Maryland area recently, and it’s easy to see why. They burn wood pellets, which are essentially pieces of compressed wood. Pellets offer a cleaner burn than other heating sources, because they are carbon neutral. Pellet stoves are also very convenient for homeowners, because they don’t need a chimney! Freestanding models can be installed nearly anywhere in your home, provided there is an electrical outlet nearby. Also, pellet stoves contain a built-in-hopper that automatically feeds pellets into the system as needed. This means you’ll get much more heat and enjoyment without having to continually load your stove. Because wood pellets are compressed, they burn more efficiently than wood logs. In fact, pellet stoves burn about 15% more efficiently than wood stoves. A 40 lb bag of pellets can provide up to 20 hours of non-stop heat. Using a pellet stove to heat a single room or a floor of your home is a very efficient way to quickly lower heating costs.
And pellet stoves don’t need to be an eyesore! Over the years, their design has developed into a beautiful piece of home décor, of which you can be proud. Visit Tevis Home and talk to one of our representatives if you have any questions regarding wood or pellet stoves.
