Question: What can I use to start my pellet stove?
Answer: Many people opt to have an automatic starter installed in their appliance. Without an automatic starter, you will want to use dry wood pellets and fuel starter gel, along with following the directions in your appliance manual. NEVER use obscure items or charcoal lighter fluid to ignite your pellet stove. If you need a replacement manual for your American Energy System appliance, you can download one here.
