Household heating using renewable energy

You can have wonderful naturally warm rooms using wood pellet fuel with the ultimate in modern stove technology the wood pellet stove. Wood pellet stoves efficiently, conveniently and cheaply convert biomass in the form of wood pellets to heat while giving off almost no wood smoke, helping to protect the environment.

Contemporary Italian and Scandinavian wood pellet stoves are stylish home furnishings with large glass windows and ceramic cladding in attractive colours such as red or black.

Our pellet stoves are top fed and are filled through a hatch on the top of the stove. A screw feed inclined at an angle feeds the pellets into the burning chamber. This auger prevents flames reaching back to the fuel hopper. Warm air produced by the stoves is moved around the room by fans and the stove temperature is regulated by thermostatic control. The stove surfaces stay quite cool compared to the very hot bodies of traditional stoves.

Pellet stoves also have remote controls for electronic ignition and temperature control making them safe, attractive and easy to use. They are microprocessor controlled and can be turned on using the remote control or the control panel on the top of the stove or with the built in electronic timer.

We currently stock the range of Artel pellet stoves
These modern stoves use sophisticated clean burn methods and can be installed in houses that do not allow traditional open fires and are a much more efficient way to heat a room. All Artel stoves are manufactured to European standard PREN 14685 for pellet stoves, and have been passed for use throughout Europe. They are manufactured in Northern Italy.

Pellet stove installation is not expensive and the pellet stoves are cheap to run. The wood pellet fuel they burn is a renewable, clean burning, biomass fuel made from recycled wood waste or sawdust.
