Pellet Stoves Use Renewable Energy

Pellet stoves are similar to wood stoves in concept, but they have automated operation and burn processed biomass for fuel. The pellets are manufactured from compacted sawdust, wood chips, agricultural crop waste, wastepaper and other materials.

How Pellet Stoves Work

Pellet stoves are designed to heat a space directly. The flue in a pellet stove can be directly vented through a wall, which means that no chimney is required. This makes them easy and convenient to add to any home. Pellets are stored in a hopper that can generally hold enough pellets for the stove to run for more than a day.

Pellet stoves use electricity to run three motorized systems that operate automatically:

  • A screw auger feeds pellets into the fire at a controlled rate
  • An exhaust fan vents exhaust gases and draws in combustion air
  • A circulating fan forces air through the heat exchanger and into the room.

Maintenance

Pellet stoves require maintenance, but less maintenance than a wood burning stove. They should be inspected regularly. The hopper must be filled and the ashtray should be emptied on a weekly basis.

Additionally, the stove should have a yearly check-up to ensure that the doors, gaskets, electric connections and seals on the stove are in good condition. The chimney should also be checked for creosote, rust and corrosion.

Efficiency

Pellet stove efficiency ratings are published by the manufacturers. The efficiency ratings combine electrical efficiency, combustion efficiency (which is a measure of the heat produced while burning), and heat transfer efficiency. Efficiencies can range from 78% to 80%. More efficient stoves lose less heat up the chimney and deliver more heat into the home.

Gas fireplaces can produce enough BTUs to be considered an alternative or secondary heating source. They efficiently heat a room, and you'll find there are a wide variety of styles and designs that look just like a traditional fireplace and mantle. Gas Fireplaces can even be hooked up to a thermostat, so your home can have a constant temperature.

Whether entertaining friends or cozying up with a favorite book, there's nothing like a warm glowing fire to add ambience and warmth to the home. But hauling and storing firewood and cleaning up messy ashes can make building a wood-burning fire a hassle. This season easily transform a wood-burning fireplace and experience the beauty and benefits of gas logs while saving money, time and the environment.

Beautiful

Today's gas logs produce a stunning, realistic flame that can rival any wood-burning log. A wide range of wood types is available, from birch to oak, as well as colored glass and gems and accessories to add personal style to any hearth.

Economical

Gas logs are generally inexpensive to buy and install and cost about a quarter per hour of what it costs to burn wood. Some gas logs are more than 99 percent efficient.

Convenient

Gas logs allow for instant enjoyment. With a touch of a button, the fireplace turns on and off. There's no need to purchase, store and season wood and clean up and dispose of messy ashes.

Safe

Gas logs prevent flying sparks, common with wood, that might burn a rug or cause other damage. They don't create indoor particulate matter that is harmful to asthmatics and those with respiratory issues.

Environmentally Friendly

Burning gas logs helps preserve natural resources for generations to come by eliminating harmful particulate matter in the air.

Which Gas Logs

Real Fyre Gas Logs offers more than 40 authentic styles, each handcrafted and hand-painted to deliver a realistic look with dancing flames and a glowing bed of lively embers.

Gas logs are manufactured in the U.S.A. using stringent standards and the most advanced technology. Companion accessories such as remote controls, pinecones, acorns, additional branches and many other items further enhance the beauty and authenticity of your hearth.
