Can You Burn Wood Pellets In A Fireplace?

Can you burn wood pellets in a fireplace?

You will find that burning wood pellets in a fireplace requires special fireplace fixtures. A pellet tray or pellet basket holds pellets in your fireplace so you can use pellet fuel to heat your home or enjoy an outdoor fireplace without a special pellet stove.

Using wood pellets in fireplaces can reduce reliance on fossil fuels and provide an energy-efficient heating solution. In addition, the pellets burn cleanly with very little ash.

Why use wood pellets in fireplaces?

Wood pellets are a smart energy choice. The wood pellets burn cleanly and produce very little ash. This allows you to get the most heat from the burn. Burning wood pellets in a fireplace or stove can:

  1. Help reduce your heating costs.
  2. Helping you reduce your carbon footprint and impact on the environment.
  3. Helping you find a cleaner alternative to burning cord wood.

EcoPellets Tasmania uses 100% recycled wood to manufacture our wood pellets. Our wood pellets are also 100% natural. This means that we do not use chemical binders in the pellet manufacturing process.

In addition, our high-quality wood pellets meet international standards. This means our pellets have been tested by third-party labs to ensure they burn safely and efficiently. These tests also demonstrate that our wood pellets contain less than 1% ash, as low as 6.9% moisture, and have a high calorific value.

You may also find that wood pellets are less expensive than cordwood or wood chips. Since wood pellets are densely compressed dietary fibers, transportation and handling costs of wood pellets may be lower. Many consumers find it less expensive to use wood pellets than wood chips. Also, wood pellets are easy to store because they are very compact. One ton of wood pellets takes up about 1.5 wood slats. This means you can easily store pellets in your garage or basement.
