Hereof, are pellet stoves cost efficient?
Pellet stoves that are certified by the EPA are likely to be in the 70% to 83% efficiency range. 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.
Also, how does a pellet stove heat your house? You start by pouring the pellets into the stove's hopper, which usually holds 40 to 55 pounds of them at a time. The pellets are then fed automatically into a burn chamber, where they're incinerated with the help of a fan that forces combustion air into the chamber. Another fan blows the hot air out into your house.
Subsequently, one may also ask, how long will a 40 lb bag of wood pellets burn?
Can a pellet stove heat an entire house?
Pellet stoves are not designed to heat your entire home, instead they are room/zone heating appliances to provide heat to the immediate area in which they are located.
