Why Choose Wood Pellets?

Cindy By Cindy 2022-11-23

You might choose a wood pellet-burning stove or appliance to heat your home for a number of reasons. Burning wood pellets may be a better option than other energy sources. In many cases, wood pellets are a greener and more cost-effective option than other heat sources. Other reasons you might choose wood pellets over other heating options include:

Easy to maintain

You’ll find that a bag of EcoPellets Tasmania premium wood pellets contains less than 1% ash. This means our pellets burn clean, which means you can cut down on cleaning and maintenance.

Get more calories for less money

Wood pellets provide a stable heat source with low emissions. Also, when used in a stove, boiler or furnace, pellets provide the same amount of heat as other sources for less money. Even compared to other biomass fuels, wood pellets provide clean combustion and stable, uniform heat.


Compared to cork or natural gas heating, you will find that the value of wood pellets is much higher. 1 ton of wood pellets from EcoPellets Tasmania has a calorific value of approximately 1.5 wood.

Easy to store

Wood pellets are not only high in calorific value, but also easy to store. 1 ton wood pellets have about ⅓ of the space required to store one piece of wood rope. This makes wood pellets an easy-to-use heating solution.

Simple to use

Pellet fuel burns cleanly and efficiently. Produces minimal soot and smoke. The exhaust is not hot, so there is no need for a masonry chimney. Pellet stoves can be installed in almost any room of the house. Pellet stoves and boilers can replace or work with your existing heating system.

Easy to plan

Unlike oil, pellet fuel costs do not fluctuate. The cost of wood pellets does not change based on world events. This means consumers don’t have to deal with unpredictable heating bills. Biomass energy prices are stable.

In addition, wood pellets are an eco-friendly heating solution. Wood pellets are recyclable and produce very little carbon compared to fossil fuels.
