A pellet stove burns compressed wood or biomass pellets to create a source of heat for residential and industrial spaces. By slowly feeding fuel from a storage container (hopper) into a burn-pot area, they create a constant flame that requires little to no physical adjustments. Pellet stoves make a great addition for both primary or as a secondary heat source.
A wood burning appliance is capable of burning wood fuel and wood-derived biomass fuel. Generally the appliance consists of a solid metal (cast iron or steel) closed fire chamber, a fire brickbase and adjustable air control. Wood burning appliances maintain high efficiencies by combusting hot flue gasses to less than 4.5 grams of particulites per hour.
A gas heating appliance is used to heat or add ambiance to a home or outdoor area by burning natural gas (NG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LP).
