Going Green: The Best Pellet Stoves in Denver for the Earth and Your Wallet
Much-loved in Europe, pellet stoves are rapidly gaining in popularity across the U.S., with over one million homes enjoying warmth from this affordable, renewable heating technology. Tired of burning through tons of wood, or aching to reduce your dependence on fossil fuels? Read on to discover what some of the best pellet stoves Denver has to offer over traditional wood and gas counterparts…
A greener choice
using waste products to create energy, the best pellet stoves operate on waste wood, corn, wheat, barley, grass or other biomass byproducts, which are processed into pellets, saving them from landfills and turning them into fuel. Sold in sealed bags, they burn more completely than seasoned cordwood, producing just 3 ounces of ash per 40 pound bag. Usable as a primary heat source for homes up to 2,700 square feet, they can eliminate or drastically reduce dependence on fossil fuels (oil, propane, electricity), and their environmental and out-of-pocket costs.
