Similarly one may ask, how do I choose the best wood pellets?
In general, you want to choose pellets that are shorter in length. Shorter pellets feed more fuel into the fire. Choose wood pellets with less than 10% moisture content for best burning results. When choosing between soft or hard wood pellets, softer is better.
Also Know, what are the pellets in a pellet stove? A: Pellets are renewable fuel made from compacted sawdust, wood chips, bark, or agricultural crop waste. They can be purchased in 40 lb. bags at fireplace dealers, nurseries, building supply stores, feed and garden supplies, and some discount merchandisers.
Beside this, which is better hardwood or softwood pellets?
Hardwood, with a higher density, has a long burn time compared to a softwood log. This often confuses a wood stove burner when they switch to a pellet stove. Softwood pellets have higher BTUs than hardwood pellets, but only because of a higher concentration of lignins that ignite at high temperatures.
Do hardwood pellets burn longer than softwood pellets?
FACT: Softwood pellets typically have higher heat output (burn hotter) and lower ash (burn cleaner) than hardwood pellets. Indeed, high quality softwood pellets can produce 10-20% more BTUs per pound than hardwood pellets, and a cleaner burn means less maintenance for busy you!
