Pellets and firewood are popular, renewable, and cost-effective ways to heat your home or business. According to the EPA, new, high-efficiency pellet and wood stoves:
- Are up to 50% more energy efficient (use less wood and create less ash)
- Produce less wood smoke pollution
- Reduce creosote build-up and the risk of chimney fires
Conventional fireplaces draw high volumes of warm air up the chimney, causing other areas of the home to be drafty and cooler. Airtight pellet and wood fireplace inserts maintain the aesthetic benefits of a fireplace with greater heating efficiency.
