The interest in pellets has grown steadily in recent years, since it is a source of clean energy and, above all, the most advantageous heating fuel on an economic level if wood is excluded.

It is in fact a device increasingly used to supplement or replace the domestic heating system, an ecological instrument that differs from traditional wood-burning stoves both from a technological and a consumption point of view.

Why a pellet stove?


The advantages of a pellet stove reside in comfort and ease of use: in fact they work with automatic and programmable ignitions, with a pellet tank that is simple and convenient to load. They use a fuel that is easily found packaged and not bulky, which does not require special checks.These stoves also form only a few residues of ash or embers, which makes their cleaning and maintenance not particularly complex, suitable for home solutions and small businesses or commercial activities.

How many rooms do you want to heat up?


The environment you want to heat is one of the first things to consider when choosing a stove: the number of rooms, their layout and conformation affect the essential characteristics that the heat source must have and in the way it must be installed.

The number of rooms or environments you want to heat is essential to know to determine the type of stove you need: for just one room, in fact, an air stove may be sufficient, while if you want to heat an entire house you may need a water thermostove, connected to radiators. 1 Room: Natural Conventional Stove - Forced ventilation stove.<br /> More rooms: forced ventilation ducted stove - water heater.

Have you thought about where to place the stove?

What pellet you have to use


The choice of pellets is essential in the use of a stove, this in fact contributes to the quality of the yields and to the yield in terms of consumption. Furthermore, the right pellets guarantee faster and easier maintenance, burning better and leaving less residue. The ash residue indicator determines the degree of soiling that the pellet leaves inside the device used for combustion: the value in question must be less than 1%. These are the two main characteristics to take into consideration for the choice of pellets, in fact from these two factors, all the others also depend, namely the processing, the type of essence from which it is derived.

It is essential that the product is certified by national or international certificates; for Italy, the recognized certification is Pellet Gold, Din Plus for Germany and ÖNORM for Austria. However, a single certification at European level, the EN Plus, allows to control all the chemical-physical characteristics of the pellet and allows it to be divided into three categories, that is the following: the A1 for the most valuable pellets; the A2 for second choice pellets; the B inside which the poorest pellet will be classified, suitable only for industrial uses.

What you must do
