What are wood Pellets?
Wood pellets are the most common type of pellet fuel. They are mostly made from compacted sawdust, industrial wastes from the milling of lumber and from the off cuts of wood products and furniture manufacture. Wood pellets are a wonderful way to recycle wood that wood that would otherwise be useless and end up in landfill.
One 20 kg bag of pellets will burn for up to 30 hours or more (depending on the heat setting).
How do you ‘fuel’ the fire?
Wood Pellet heaters often store a whole bag of wood pellets inside them, ready to be fed into the fire. The Wood Pellet heater monitors the output temperature and pellets are automatically fed into a fire pot where a simple electric igniter lights the fire.
In this way, you can acutlaly set the temperature of the fire and the Wood Pellet heater will be able to maintain this temperature by stoking the fire itself.
Where does the smoke go?
Wood Pellet Heaters burn very differently to regular combustion heaters and open fires. Because the fire is contained in a heat box inside the unit, there is a minimum of smoke.
