Top Reasons to Install a Pellet Stove in New England:

Pellet Stoves Burn Cleanly

Because the pellets are compressed and manufactured to be very dense, they burn hotly and cleanly, producing less waste, soot, and ash, and compared to wood-burning stoves and their other oil or gas-fired counterparts, they produce less creosote. This keeps smoke and waste to a minimum.

Pellet Stoves Are Highly Efficient

Pellet stoves approved by the Environmental Protection Agency are designed to be up to 83% efficient, a sizeable increase over traditional wood-burning fireplaces. This is also a higher efficiency than their gas or electric counterparts.

Pellet Stoves Are Environmentally Friendly

We’ve already established that these stoves burn cleanly. Additionally, the pellets the stoves use for fuel also come from renewable resources, making them a much eco-friendlier choice than nonrenewable energy sources like gas or oil. Pellet stoves burn wood byproducts that would have otherwise been considered waste.
