What are the advantages and disadvantages of a pellet burning insert vs. a wood burning insert?
By eFireplaceStore on February 24, 2015
Answer:Wood burning inserts are generally more popular than pellet inserts. They are simple to operate, require no electricity, are low maintenance, and are dependable. The only real disadvantage is that they must be tended to more frequently and once lit, the unit must burn down its fuel supply. Pellet inserts offer excellent heat control and are very clean burning. However, the units rely on power to operate, require weekly maintenance, and rely on electronics that can fail.
For an efficient and economical way to heat your home, try a corn and pellet burning fireplace insert from US Stove Company. These fireplace inserts give you the same heating capacity a wood stove would offer and can heat an area from 1,000 to 2,000 square feet using wood pellets, corn, soy beans, and other compressed biomass fuels. The nine blower units and heat settings give you great options and control over the amount of heat emitted. For easy cleanup, there is a removal ash pan. Lower your gas bill and try a pellet burning fireplace insert instead.
