Benefits of Pellet Stoves

We have discussed the benefits of wood stoves in the past. We thought it was time to look at the benefits of pellet stoves:
  • Easy to operate. 
  • Easy to fuel.
  • Doesn't produce smoke.
  • Higher combustion and heating efficiency than traditional wood stoves.
  • Lower fuel cost.
  • Wood pellets are made from recycled components making them more environmentally sound. 
  • Most are easier to clean than traditional wood stoves. 

There area few disadvantages to the pellet stove, one of those being that they use electricity to run, so they are not the best investment for a heating back up for power outages. However, some pellet stoves do come with a battery back up. But if the power is out for an extended period of time, there is the risk of the battery running down.

What do you consider an advantage to the pellet stove?
