Can I convert my wood stove to a pellet stove?
Accordingly, are pellet stoves better than wood stoves?
Pellet fuel appliances are more convenient to operate than ordinary wood stoves or fireplaces, and some have much higher combustion and heating efficiencies. Most pellet stoves cost between $1,700 and $3,000. However, a pellet stove is often cheaper to install than a conventional wood-burning heater.
Beside above, how much is a 40 lb bag of wood pellets? Wood pellets cost an average of $5 per 40-lb bag. Pellet bags can range from $4 to $9.
Beside above, how many bags of pellets equal a cord of wood?
A: Pellets are normally sold in 40 pound (18 kg) bags. You can estimate how much fuel you will need for a heating season by noting that one ton of pellets is equivalent to approximately 1.5 cords of firewood. Many homeowners who use a pellet stove as a main source of heat use two to three tons of pellet fuel per year.
Is it safe to run a pellet stove when not home?
It's safe enough to leave a pellet stove burning while you're out and it will continue to burn unattended as long as there are pellets to burn. A massive attraction of pellet stoves is the integration of modern technology.
