Our pellet stoves and fireplace inserts are popular choices among customers who have cabins or fishing lodges they want to heat with renewable energy. Whether you use your cabin seasonally or year-round, a pellet burning appliance is a great choice for affordable heat, flexibility in fuel choice, and intermittent use when it’s needed to heat up the space on a cold night or a longer cold spell.
If you are considering installing a pellet stove or fireplace insert in your cabin, here are a few really good questions to ask:
- What do I expect to achieve when purchasing a renewable energy appliance for my cabin?
- Can I place the unit in the right location to get the most out of the appliance or is it going to be restricted by doors, small rooms or a lack of air circulation?
- Is the cabin or fishing lodge in need of a little or a lot of insulation so that the heat is not going out the window?
- Do you have ceiling fans and a central furnace blower to help circulate the heat throughout your lodge and into those back rooms if needed?
A few more tips to know about heating your cabin with a pellet stove
Your cabin temperature will be typically up to 10 degrees warmer with a pellet stove so it takes a little more fuel to get it there. You and your cabin guests will enjoy the radiant heat and can sit in the toasty warm room without layers of clothes and blankets
Typical savings are in excess of 60 percent, but even a 15-30 percent return on your investment in an environmentally green energy appliance is well worth it. This is welcome news we often hear over and over again from happy customers.
Proper placement, correct installation, fuel quality and scheduled maintenance will result in your pellet stove operating at peak performance and efficiency. It is best to run the appliance on the lower heat settings like 2 or 3 rather than up at 4 or 5. The higher heat settings result in lower efficiency and the appliance cycling from high to pilot fire too often. A lower steady heat setting will bring the cabin up to the desired temperature and will keep it there for longer periods of time. The appliance will stay cleaner and you will not go through as much fuel.
It is important that a qualified expert qualify your cabin and place the pellet stove where it will be able to distribute the heat evenly and give you the most benefit.
