Decor : Pellet stoves, ecological heat, durable, cheap and more comfortable

Pellet stoves are the ideal, ecological and cleaner solution to acclimatize and warm the home. These heat generators use blocks or bricks of pressed wood to carry out combustion, all within a closed chamber that would be the fireplace or stove. The pellet is a biomass made up of different wood remains, usually from pruning.

This fuel is made up of biomass, that is, it is made up of biological remains of both recycled wood and wood of forest origin. It is important to note that there are many types of pellets in the market, and depending on how they are, they will have different quality certificates. In addition, depending on their quality, their chlorine content, hydrogen content and the amount of ashes they generate may also vary.
