If you have always enjoyed burning wood but have not liked all of the work involved with maintaining a supply of seasoned wood and keeping a fire going, a pellet fireplace insert may be perfect for you.  Pellet fuel comes in 40-pound bags which are convenient to store because they stack compactly.  Not only do you avoid the need to cut and store logs, you also avoid the mess and maintenance of a traditional wood fireplace.  The larger your fuel hopper, the longer the fire can burn letting you enjoy a roaring, warm fire for hours on end. Some high-powered models can actually burn for 36 hours straight with no tending required. Pellet fireplace inserts can be run manually or regulated with a thermostat.

Pellet inserts are designed to be simple to operate. The pellets are poured into a storage bin inside the insert called the hopper. You light a pellet fireplace with a simple push of a button. This begins to feed wood pellets from the hopper into the burn area of the insert and starts the automatic igniter.


Pellet inserts use an electric ignitor to start the fire. This means you can run your insert with a thermostat!

The pellets feed automatically into the combustion chamber at the speed you set - faster for hotter fires and slower for less heat. The smart technology and innovative design has made pellet inserts way more convenient than their wood burning counterparts. Determine how quickly or slowly the pellets are fed into the fire in order to control how much heat your insert produces. The faster the pellets are released, the hotter the fire will burn.

Wood pellets are made of recycled wood pieces, making them a great choice for eco-conscious homeowners. Saw dust, bark, wood chips, and wood shavings are transformed into compressed pellets that have had most of their moisture removed. This allows the fire to burn hotter and cleaner than regular firewood, creating a more efficient heat source for your home. Along with producing more heat, they generate less ash and creosote which significantly reduces the maintenance required for a pellet burning fireplace insert. Unlike firewood, pellets do not need time to season. You can use them to fuel your fireplace as soon as you purchase them.
