Question 8: What are the benefits of pellets by comparison with wood?
Answer: No refilling is needed for up to 4 hours when using pellets. Furthermore things do not become as hot when burning wood. A level of efficiency of around 70% is often higher than when burning wood as this gives the user an affordable energy cost. This is particularly good if the user does not have access to free wood. The reason why the performance is so good is that combustion is quite stable with brief starting and extinguishing times. The pellet burner produces a heat output that agrees well with the energy requirement of a normal-sized house. A wood stove quite easily produces too much heat. The flame and the even output of the pellet stove is often the benefit that is felt to be the most positive. From an interference aspect the Hammarö pellet stove is an excellent solution id smoke from a wood fire is felt to be inconvenient. Furthermore, pellets burn with an open flame in the pellet stove without sparks that emit from the hearth.
