Differences Between Wood Burning Stoves and Pellet Stoves

Wood burning stoves and pellet stoves are alternative heating sources to fossil fuels that use a renewable energy source. Howererˆ¬there are some differences.

Zhengzhou (I-Newswire) February 27, 2014 - Wood burning stoves and pellet stoves are alternative heating sources to fossil fuels that use a renewable energy source. There are three points in general differences, thatŽ‡s fuel used, the amount of working required operation and how the heat produced. The wood burning stoves can keep hot for a long time and are a burn hazard with operator, especially with the children. But the pellet stoves donŽ‡t get too hot to touch, so the burn hazard is not possible.

* Fuel Used. The pellet stoves make the pellets as burn materials, which are made of compact sawdust, wood chips and paper waste and so on. But also the biomass fuels also are the materials like shelled corn, soybeans, cherry pits or sunflowers. Besides, the pellets can be delivered or bought in sacks and stored in a basement. However, the wood burning stoves can burn the hardwood like oak, walnut and hickory which must be split to suitable length and dry before burning. Meanwhile, the hardwoods are not easy to store and occupy the space.

* Consideration. Wood burning stoves need a lot more work to do. Such as cutting, splitting, hauling and stacking. You must physically start the fire and remove the ash daily. Wood burners are messy, adding time for cleaning and dusting. However, the pellet stoves are usually self-igniting with the temperature controlled by a thermostat knob on the front of the stove. Empty the ash bin every few days and fill the hopper with pellets as needed.

* Features. Wood burning stoves must have a chimney, and produce radiant heat. However, the pellet stoves use the conventional fuel, a auger powered by the electric motor moves the pellets into the stove.

* Environmental Concerns. Wood burning stoves are less efficient, which means more of the heat goes up the chimney, especially older stoves. Older models produce as much as 40 grams of smoke per hour. Newer EPA certified models produce no more than 7.5 grams of smoke per hour. Use a carbon monoxide detector when burning wood. Pellet emissions are so minimal that they are not regulated by the EPA.

* Potential. Wood burning stoves are less expensive and work well. But when you are in a remote location or power loss after a storm, because wood burners radiate heat, it is possible to cook on a wood burning stove. Pellet stoves, while more expensive and needing electrical power to operate, are safer for the family, burn cleaner, make less of a mess and are less work to use.
