Pellet Stove Installation

Pellet stove installation is enjoying a renewed popularity due to the steeply rising cost of oil. Everyone wants their homes to be warm and cozy but not everyone can afford to keep their central air on day in and day out.

Many homeowners are buying pellet stoves as their primary source of home heating and some install them to supplement their existing systems. Aesthetically, they look like the old fashioned wood stove but in reality, they are more complex units.

Convection Air Home Heating is a Winter Winner

Throughout the chilly months of winter, ways to warm the home becomes a priority. Other than the orange glow of the flickering flames of a fireplace, there are two other main ways to generate cozy heat. These are convection and radiant heating.

Radiant heating comes from directly warming surfaces and although it can feel nice and toasty to sit by a radiator or similar appliance, the rest of the house may feel like a refrigerator by comparison. Convection air home heating is when the air temperature is heated, so that the ambient temperature is more consistent throughout the affected areas.

Forced Air Heating

Most modern furnace systems utilize some form of forced air heating. The principle is fairly simple. Air travels through a series of ductwork and into a furnace. There, the air passes through a filter to be purified and to remove dust particles.

There are a few different qualities of filter on the market and some remove more impurities than others do. After the air has been filtered, it is warmed by the heating mechanism and then blown, or forced, back into the ductwork and circulated into the home.
