Why Use Wood Pellets for Heating?
Wood Pellets are Environmentally FriendlyWood pellet fuel is manufactured from 100% natural biomass material. No chemicals or bonding agents are used in the production of wood pellets. This means a cleaner burn and less harmful emissions released into the atmosphere.
Since wood pellets are made of recycled biomass, the amount of material headed for landfills is reduced. This means we are using a source of energy that could otherwise be wasted. And since wood pellets are recycled and reused they are a carbon neutral heating source (unlike fossil fuels). By burning wood pellets, you release the same amount of carbon that would be released by decaying wood material (occurring naturally).
Wood Pellet Efficiency – Less is MoreWood pellets burn at a much hotter temperature than cord wood. A hotter burn means wood pellets are a more efficient heat source than cordwood and other fossil fuels. Since wood pellets are very efficient, they create very few emissions: 1.2 grams per hour, which falls well below the nationwide EPA regulation of less than 7.5 grams per hour. More efficiency also means less material is necessary to burn for heat. On a per pound basis, Lignetics Premium Wood Pellets can put out three to four times more heat than cordwood. Less material burned translates to less harmful overall emissions, less handling of material and fewer hours of clean up.
The efficiency of wood pellet fuel translates directly to related costs of heating. Since less biomass is burned for heat when using Lignetics Premium Wood Pellets, less stress is put on your heating system which helps prolong the life of your equipment. And since wood pellets burn at a high temperature, there are few gasses released. This greatly reduces creosote build up, thus reducing the maintenance of your venting system and the possibility of dangerous chimney fires.
Wood pellet fuel creates efficiency. A more efficient product always means a more economical product, and a product that is good for the environment.
Wood Pellet Fuel is a Domestic Renewable Energy SourceWood pellets are manufactured in the United States using renewable, recycled biomass produced in the United States. The source of wood pellets is renewable each year, creating a stable heating source. The price of wood pellets is not subject to world affairs and foreign price setting. Over time, wood pellet fuel has been very stable and remains the most reliable, cost-effective heating choice.
Domestic production of wood pellet fuel means domestic American jobs. Not only is wood pellet fuel the best choice for economic, efficiency and environmental reasons, it helps to stimulate the United States economy. The creation of jobs linked to the wood pellet industry extends beyond production plants. The industry creates a demand for tree farmers, distribution centers, transportation and other linked industries. Wood pellet fuel is a win-win fuel source for the United States.
