Wood pellets are an incredibly affordable heating solution for you home. They offer a great mix of low price, safe use, personal control, and an environmentally friendly use that makes people incredibly happy with their stove purchase. Because wood pellets are dried sawdust, they burn hot and clean without the bug-filled mess of using cord wood. On the note of environmentally friendly, wood pellets are made of what was once waste material in manufacturing. This means that even less of a harvested tree is lost to waste. And remember, that tree has spent a lifetime removing carbon from the atmosphere.
