What to Consider With Pellet Central Heating Systems
When choosing a pellet-fired central heating system for your commercial or residential application, it is important to select the right model for your needs. Consider the following factors:
Pellet Boiler Location
Adequate space is required for fuel storage, the boiler, and the buffer tank. Our pellet boilers are compact and usually fit in the space of the old boiler or furnace. We can talk you through sizing options to choose the best fit for your application.
Your Heating Demands
Depending on your heating requirements, a larger model or multiple boilers may be a good choice. Multiple boilers can operate together as one seamless system. Most homes only need one boiler, but larger commercial spaces may require multiple boilers.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has specific wood-burning boiler standards, including regulations for wood pellet hydronic heaters. All modern wood-burning appliances must comply with these standards for clean air. We recommend purchasing your pellet boiler from a trusted company that can help you comply with regulations and provide service and support for many years.
Fröling pellet boilers require minimal hand cleaning since the burners come with automatic cleaning systems. At Tarm Biomass, we help you with after-purchase installation, usage, and maintenance. You always know where to go for help, whether you purchased from one of our trained dealers or directly from us.
Fuel for the Wood Pellet Heater
Wood pellet fuel is manufactured from milled wood particles, including waste wood, low-quality wood, and, less commonly, bark, which is pressed through dies at very high pressure. The most commonly available wood pellet fuel is graded "Premium". Premium wood pellet fuel contains less than 1% ash and conforms to other important limits. Typically, wood pellets contain less than 4% moisture. Wood pellets can be purchased in multi-ton bulk quantities or in 20- or 40-lb bags.
As a rough approximation, 17.5 lbs of wood pellets provide the same amount of heat as a gallon of heating oil. With these characteristics, wood pellets burn very efficiently. They are also very easy and safe to transport and store. Wood pellets have an average net BTU rating of 8,200 BTU/lb. Please use our fuel cost comparison tool to calculate the relative fuel costs in your area.
Wood pellets are ideal for automatic wood pellet boilers because the pellets are consistent and have better flow characteristics than other forms of wood fuel. Wood pellets are typically conveyed to wood pellet boilers with augers and/or conveyed pneumatically through hoses.
The Benefits of a Pellet Boiler
There are many perks to owning and using a whole-house pellet boiler. Some of these advantages include:
- Lower costs: Wood pellets are historically more cost-effective than fossil fuels. Wood pellet fuel prices also fluctuate much less than oil and gas prices.
- Tax credits: For residential purchases, wood pellet boiler heating systems are eligible for a 26% federal tax credit from the government through the end of 2021.
- Sustainable heat: Wood pellets are a renewable resource with low carbon emissions, meaning you can heat your home or business with an environmentally conscious source.
Tarm Biomass delivers these benefits and more with your whole-house wood pellet boiler.
