Can you mount a pellet stove into a fire place?
By Tyler M. on October 14, 2014
Answer:If the stove can meet proper clearances from all sides and floor protection, and of course be vented properly, yes, this can be done. Please check all clearance and venting requirements for any particular stove that interests you and compare it to your proposed application.

By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on July 30, 2013
Answer:First, you would need to ensure that the pellet stove in question has been tested and listed for use in mobile home applications. Moreover, it is likely you will need to replace the entire chimney pipe system and replace it with type L pellet vent pipe. We do carry everything needed.

Are there battery back-ups available for pellet stoves if power goes out?
By Will M. on November 10, 2015
Answer:Pellet stoves will generally be reliant on 120v and will not operate in the event of a power outage. 120v has to be supplied for a blower to draw in combustion air and provide exhaust for a chimney under positive pressure. While designing a chimney system that provides natural draft will help exhaust combustion byproducts in the event of a power outage, pellet stoves have a very small fuel load and will not provide much heat during this process without drawing in air for combustion and the auger not feeding pellets.

I have a 10 year old pellet stove and it's using 150 lbs of pellets a day. What do you think is the problem?
By Will M. on February 15, 2016
Answer:Without knowing the make and model number, I would assume you have recently changed the pellet fuel you are using if you have not adjusted the feed rate or are simply relying on the pellet stove more due to colder weather. If operating on a thermostat, some models will adjust the feed rate automatically to account for this.

Will a pellet stove operate if you lose electricity?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 26, 2014
Answer:Unfortunately, no. Pellet stoves rely on electricity to operate, as they require a combustion and convection fan that operates on 110 volts. A 110 volt battery backup or generator would be needed for the unit to continue operation during a power outage.

What is pellet fuel? What are pellets and how are they made?
By Will M. on February 26, 2016
Answer:Pellet fuel used for most pellet stoves is sawdust from lumber mills that is compressed in a hammer mill. Due to it's low moisture content (10% or lower), pellet fuel is considered a very efficient fuel source for heating.
