New wood-pellet home heating technologies allow customers to easily upgrade their existing oil-fired furnaces and boilers to wood pellets simply by swapping out the burner. Now you can choose a central heating system that’s completely automated and environmentally friendly while you save on home heating bills year after year.
The main feature of this new system is that it can be fully automated—a customer can “set it and forget it.” Instead of 40-pound bags, bulk wood pellets are trucked to the home and then blown into a 4-week storage bin through a 75’ pneumatic hose—similar to the once-a-month visit from your oil company.
The burner and storage system is installed by factory-trained, certified heating-system professionals. They are generally heating technicians employed by your local, trusted, reliable oil-delivery company that already services you home and understands your heating needs. These installers are required to have a background in hydronic heating systems, boiler repair, and boiler stabilization. The system is safe, reliable and has undergone years of rigorous real-world testing. It meets UL requirements and is even pre-approved for financing.
The wood pellets are locally sourced, renewable, clean-burning, carbon-neutral, stably priced, and abundant. Transportation costs and environmental impacts are also lessened as there are many local mills in the Northeast making wood pellets from the pulp excess of conventional lumber milling operations.
If you heat your home with a cord-wood boiler and are tired of cutting, splitting and stacking wood, you can easily fire your boiler with wood pellets. Wood pellet heating systems also work with the thermostat already installed in your home and have an automated ignition system that will only burn pellets when there is a demand for heat.
Widely used in Europe and now manufactured here in the state of Vermont, wood pellet heat supports jobs in manufacturing, delivery, installation and service, not to mention all the ancillary materials and services that go into new, high-tech wood pellet systems.
