Heating your home is a major concern in the wintertime, and like it or not, the time when it will be needed is coming faster than you wish for. Heating is a large expense, and there are constant improvements in the different methods used, as well as, the fuels available. Pellet stoves have seen a rise in popularity over the years, and that is because of several factors that make them more economical than many alternatives, as well as, the environmentally friendly way the fuel is produced.
Pellet stoves burn small, compressed pellets. These can consist of many different types of organic matter, some that would just be considered waste like sawdust or food scraps. These pellets are packed in bags, which make it easy to store and transport.
A slight downside to pellet stoves is that they need electricity to function, so having a backup generator is a wise investment.
