There are many causes for concern and reasons to make environmentally conscious decisions when it comes to how to heat your home. From learning to be greener and the footprint you leave, to the depletion of the earth’s natural resources, find the right renewable energy heat option is important. Oil conflict and rising fuel prices are a concern. There are so many ways to go about reducing your impact on the environment, but thinking about the way you heat your home is one area where you can make a major impact and save plenty of money in the process.
Wind and solar energy get a lot of attention, but when it comes to heat, few options compare with the environmental benefits of installing a MagnuM pellet stove or fireplace. Wood burning stoves have long offered a path to energy independence, but today’s pellet stoves fall into an entirely new class of green appliances with their ability to cleanly and more completely burn renewable fuel. Did you know that all of the corn and wood pellet burning stoves made by American Energy System exceed the emissions standards set forth in 2015?
5 Ways Pellet Stoves are Environmentally Friendly
Here are five reasons installing a Magnum or Country Flame brand appliance is an environmentally friendly idea:
Extremely Low Emissions. Pellet stoves rate as the most efficient of all solid-burning residential heating appliances. Materials in pellet form burn more completely and efficiently and today’s design improvements allow hot air generated by the flame to be used most efficiently through both direct heat and radiant heat from the stove. MagnuM pellet stoves exceed EPA clean air emissions standards, making them a great (and green) choice.
Less Overall Waste. Did you know you can keep waste out of landfills by using a pellet stove? Wood pellets often are produced from discarded scraps and sawdust and wheat pellets come from the husks and other unusable parts of the plant – and those aren’t the only types of pellets generated from material otherwise considered waste. One person’s waste is your green energy. Unlike more traditional fuel and oil spills, if you spill some corn, wheat, or wood pellets on the ground, it’s safe and doesn’t harm people or animals.
All Natural Renewable Fuel. When you buy a pellet stove, you have a lot of options in terms of the type of fuel you can use. One thing all these options have in common is that they come from 100 percent renewable sources. A green pellet stove runs on fuel that’s grown, not mined.
Less Material Costs. New energy-efficient pellet stoves and fireplace inserts don’t require chimneys or elaborate duct work. You can save both on material costs and use fewer resources when you install a green pellet stove.
Locally Sourced/Buy Local Possibilities. The beauty of pellet stoves is that you can source your fuel locally and know exactly where it comes from. For instance, you could fuel your pellet stove with corn from a farmer in your community. The more we can reduce or eliminate all transportation-related environmental costs, the more green practices can be achieved.
As you search for ways to outfit your property with green appliances and reduce your impact on the environment, you’d be hard pressed to find a better heating option than MagnuM brand appliances that run on renewable fuel.
