Aside from the financial rewards, heating your home with biomass fuels also allows you to support local farmers; you can keep your hard earned dollars in the local economy... and that's good for everyone! Biomass furnace technology is also friendly to the environment because corn is a renewable resource (unlike fossil fuels), it burns clean, is pollution-free and keeps your family safe from the threat of carbon monoxide in the home.

6. How do you store the wood pellets?

There are several different ways to store your wood pellets. The final decision will be based on what is the most convenient for you. For those getting small quantities of wood pellets at a time, garbage cans or storage tubs work well. For those who want to purchase wood pellets in bulk and have it delivered, outside silos are available in various sizes to meet any need.

8. Is there a way to recycle my wood pellet ash?
Your wood pellet ash can be used for its nutritional value. Unlike ash from firewood or coal, wood pellet ash offers additional value as a fertilizer and as a liming agent. Burning wood pellets does not produce a large volume of ash, but what you do produce can be safely applied to garden areas, flower beds, lawns, and fields.
