The unique combustion design of a pellet stove, along with the high efficiency heat transfer allow a Magnum pellet stove to be cool to the touch. Reduced clearances and low temperature venting eliminate the safety risks of normal “chimneys”. A high efficiency pellet stove will not only have lower emissions, but are often safer. This is because they have complete combustion in a “closed system” which helps prevent build up of flammable chimney deposits called creosote. It’s important to look for a pellet stove that has been UL Certified which is indicated on the manufacturers label. You’ll find Magnum pellet stoves offer the most sought after safety, heat efficiency and safety features on the market.
