WOOD PELLETS


What are pellets?

Pellet fuel is a renewable, clean-burning and cost stable home heating alternative currently used worldwide. It is a biomass product made of renewable substances – generally recycled wood waste. Every day more and more homes are using wood pellets for heat, in freestanding stoves, fireplace inserts, furnaces and boilers.

In short, pellet fuel is a way to divert millions of tons of waste from landfills and turn it into energy.

Pellets are extremely dense and can be produced with a low moisture content (below 10%) that allows them to be burned with very high combustion efficiency. Their regular geometry and small size allow automatic feeding with very fine calibration. They can be fed into a combustion chamber by a feeding screw. Their high density also permits compact storage and rational transport over long distance. They can be conveniently carried from a carrier to a storage bunker or silo on a customer's premises.

How to buy pellets?

1. Find out if there are any recommendations on pellets from the company.

Consult with your wood pellet stove's manufacturer to determine if they make any recommendations about which type of pellets to use. Every boiler burns differently. Also place a call to the store where you purchased the boiler, if possible. Experienced sales staff can tell you what brands have worked best in the past with your particular boiler model.

2. Calculate how many bags you will need for the season.

You can buy the pellets by the bag or in big bags. Since most boilers burn approximately a bag a day during the winter season, it is common for people to pre-buy their pellets in advance.

Ask the salesperson how much the stove burns per day during the winter.

Then, using the pad and paper, calculate how many bags of pellets you will need to make it through the season.

3. Find the best prices for the pellets you need.

Buying in quantity usually gives you a discount off the per bag price.

Find the nearest salesmen of pellets and compare their price and pellets quality. Also control what brands of pellets they sell, whether they are hardwood or softwood pellets, what the BEST PRICE is for the quantity you need, if they are running any type of special promotions for orders larger than yours, and what the delivery charges are. If you don't want to store the pellets at your home, some places will store them for you and deliver them to you as you use them.

4. Before making any purchases, research the brand of pellets.

Unless the brand is the one that was recommended by the manufacturer of the salesperson, do some homework on the brand before buying. Also pay attention for the color of the pellets. It depends of the fiber composition and manufacturing process. Most common pellets are produced from spruce wood or from beech tree wood. Relevant key features to the consumer are calorific value, moisture and ash content of the pellets. We recommend that you buy pellets with up to 1% ash. Each bag contains information on the technical characteristics, the manufacturer who satisfies the most stringent conditions, it will of course be prominently displayed in the standard. DIN Plus is clearly visible sign.

5. Buy your pellets with confidence!

Once you know that you are getting a fair deal, buy them! Pellets are in high demand now, and many suppliers are having trouble securing pellets to sell.
