The Benefits of Pellets
Clean-burning and renewable home heating alternative.
What makes Appalachian Wood Pellets so unique is that we partner Allegheny Wood Products, a producer of high-quality hard wood lumber, to retain their left over wood chips and sawdust pieces for use in the manufacturing of wood pellets. The bark is used to dry the wood fiber so nothing is wasted. Meaning, our processes are not only efficient, but they keep your purchasing costs down.
If you burn 1 ton of wood pellets, you will replace approximately 120 gallons of heating oil, 170 gallons of propane or 4,775 kWh of electricity. That adds up to a lot of savings! What’s more, burning wood pellets is cleaner than organic decomposition in the forest because wood pellets are considered carbon neutral.
The benefits are extensive—from cost to environment, wood pellets are quickly becoming consumer’s choice for heating.
