USA: Pellet Stoves: Pellet Stove Manufacturers
ABOUT PELLET STOVES
Pellet stoves have moving parts, which feed the wood pellets into the burner. This makes them relative complex compared to a conventional wood stove. The advantage is that they can be left unattended for long periods. This disadvantage is that they do require more maintenance.
Pellet stoves may be top fed or bottom fed. The top fed pellet stove has a reduced risk of the fire burning back into the pellet hopper, but is more liable to become jammed. For this reason some makers of top fed pellet stoves recommend the use of high-grade low-ash pellets.
Pelletized wood is the most common fuel for pellet stoves. Many pellet stoves will burn a variety of pellets, including those made from grain, corn, seeds, or wood chips.
