Pellet Stove Inserts to Heat Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Too many homeowners paid far too much for home heating this winter. Thus has begun the search for a better, more efficient, more cost effective winter heating alternative. If you are one of these folks, consider a pellet stove insert.

Wood pellet stove inserts have higher combustion and heating efficiency than wood stoves so they release a very little amount of particulates into the air, far less than wood stoves. St. Croix pellet stove inserts have a heat capacity of up to 40,000 BTU per hour and can be used to heat a home that is up to 1800 square feet. This means you can use this fireplace insert as the only way to heat your home, or as a supplemental heat source.
