Wood pellet stoves and boilers are devices that burn wood pellets to produce heat in the home. They are an advancement to open fires and stoves. They can be free standing or placed into an existing chimney insert. Wood pellets are a clean and dry fuel made from a mixture of sawdust and wood shavings. Unlike other fuels pellets are a high energy smoke free fuel that creates little amounts of ash.
Amazingly there are even fully automated pellet boilers with thermostats that read the room temperature and feed in the wood pellets when necessary and then cut off the feed when it’s not needed so the person only has to refill the wood pellet chamber when it runs out! Now there is even an attachment that can be added where a person can regulate the heat in their wood pellet boiler by their mobile phone!
Wood pellet stoves and boilers are also clean for the environment; other fuels such as gas and oil produce heavy amounts of carbon emissions which is responsible for climate change. Wood pellets are a renewable source of energy and are cleaner as they are a form of carbon neutral fuel. In Ireland grants are available for wood pellet stoves and boiler retrofits from the Sustainable Authority of Ireland.
