Ehrhart sells and installs wood pellet stoves from today’s leading manufacturers. They can be used as a secondary or primary heating source, using compressed-lumber industry waste products that are typically 3/8” in diameter and vary in length from about half an inch to an inch.
These stoves are easier to operate than a traditional wood-log stove, while still filling your home with the natural-wood warmth you simply cannot achieve with oil or propane.
They are fully automated, self-cleaning, self-feeding and self-igniting (operating in conjunction with your thermostat). The only cleaning required is emptying the ash pan twice a year.
Pellet stoves have a built-in hopper system that allows you to pour a 40-pound bag of wood pellets into the top of the stove, so you only need to add another bag every 18 to 24 hours.
You will likely need no more than four to five tons of wood pellets to last the winter, with a ton of pellets generally costing slightly over $200.
For added convenience, many homeowners and businesses opt to invest in an indoor or outdoor storage container that can automatically feed the pellets into the stove as needed. With this set-up, you can order bulk wood pellet delivery from us and leave the bags behind.
Wood pellet heating offers you many benefits and is gaining in popularity all the time—especially in winter-ravaged New England. We urge you to take a closer look at this cost-effective, eco-friendly alternative to oil or propane heating today.
