Wood and pellet fuels are a renewable way to heat your home or business. Pellets and wood are a popular fuel choice due to their affordability over fossil fuels and the fact that Maine has significant, locally-produced wood fuel supplies.
A biomass boiler burns pellets or cordwood and is connected to a central heating system. Many Mainers are familiar with pellet stoves, but pellet boilers are a relatively new technology in our region. Pellet boilers operate like conventional fuel central heating systems but require pellet storage space (hoppers are frequently located in the basement adjacent to the boiler). Many boilers include self-cleaning systems and require less cleaning than pellet stoves. Bulk pellet delivery is offered in many regions of the state.
