Wood pellets are an economical way to heat your home. Even better, they’re very environmentally friendly! A study by the Pellet Fuels Institute shows that, compared to oil, wood pellets burned to create the same level of heat, reduced CO2 emissions by 1.5 tons. They also burn longer and stronger than other biomass fuels. You’ll get 8,000 BTUs per pound with pellets. Most pellets are made from by-products of other lumber-related industries, making them a recycled resource. You’ll also be able to significantly lower your heating costs! Pellets offer a fuel cost per million BTU of $19.05. In order to match that BTU per dollar, fuel oil would have to cost $2.05 per gallon! Compared to firewood, wood pellets offer some unique benefits. They’re much easier to store, for one, and burn much cleaner. You can store up to 1 ton of wood pellets in a 4’ x 4’ space.
We buy our wood pellets from East Heat because their pellets are entirely made from wood created by lumber industry by-products. Without Easy Heat, that wood would otherwise end up in landfills. The pellets themselves are first class as well. Their 100% wood formulation produces high BTUs, low ash, and dramatic savings in energy usage and heating costs. Regular testing is done of the products they offer, ensuring that every bag of wood pellets is as efficient as possible. Here are the standards that each premium trade wood fuel pellet will live up to:
Dimensions: Diameter 1/4" - 5/16"
Ash Content: Less than 1%
Fines: Not more than 0.5%
Bulk Density: Not less than 40 lb
Sodium: Less than 300 ppm
Length: None longer than 1.5"
