Tips & Trivia
  • If all U.S. households replaced four incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescents, we would reduce as much pollution as if we took 3.5 million cars off the roads! More bright ideas.

Pellet fuel is a biomass product made of renewable substances – typically recycled wood waste. Clean-burning pellet stoves are an efficient and affordable alternative to wood-burning.

Benefits:

  • Economical. For just pennies an hour, pellet stoves deliver cozy, constant heat.

  • Efficient. One pack of pellets provides several hours of steady heat.

  • Cleaner than cut wood. Emits significantly less wood smoke pollution than wood fires.

  • Easy to use. The auger automatically delivers the fuel to provide the heat you want. A battery back-up, available on many units, runs the auger during power outages.

  • OK to use during Stage 1 Burn Bans.

Note: Cannot be used during Stage 2 Burn Bans.
