Partnering a Pellet Stove with Your Heating System

A homeowner in Hudson, NH recently asked: What about adding a pellet stove as an alternative source to heat my home this winter?

In New England when the temperatures begin to drop and the arctic chill sets in many homeowners seek alternative ways to heat their home in conjunction with the furnace.

Wood pellet stoves work to heat, or supplement the heat, in residences by burning compressed wood. These wood pellets are fed into the stove through a storage container in the stove, creating a constant flame that requires very little attention from the homeowner. Pellet stoves burn cleanly, produce lots of heat and require very little maintenance making this a popular choice for New Englanders.

Pellet stoves are not without their limitations. While not designed for any just room in the house, the pellet stove should always be set on a fire-resistant surface such as tile or stone. This can be a challenge for a room that has a combustible flooring such as hardwood, vinyl or carpeting. The stove also must have appropriate venting to prevent any smoke and fumes for being sucked back in to the house.

Don’t Rely on a Pellet Stove for Your Only Heat Source

In the case of the Hudson homeowner, his home was large and stretched over three floors including the basement. While the pellet stove was a great addition to the living room and center of the house, he knew that his home’s heating unit would need to be used to supplement heating other areas of the home. This winter his family will be staying warm, and saving money on their home heating bills, by using a pellet stove in conjunction with their furnace.

Testimonials & Reviews

We had central air conditioning installed last year by Joyce and were very satisfied with the job. Today, John N. serviced the unit and all of the components and he was incredibly thorough and professional. He explained exactly what was serviced and what to avoid (greenery around the outdoor unit). I highly recommend Joyce Cooling & Heating!
