Ducted Pellet Stove Review
Many people are very fond of using ducted Pellet Stoves to keep their home warm. Although this type of stove has been around for many years it is not as popular today as the other types. The reason that it is not as popular today is because many people have turned to electric heating systems for their homes and are using central heating. It should be noted that even if you use an electric system there will still be benefits to using a ducted stove because it can still help to keep your house very warm.
Ducted Pellet Stoves can come with quite a variety of choices to assist you heat even more of the house, but there are still some things you can do to assist distribute this heat more evenly. One way in which to distribute the heat is by using floor fans to drive hot air throughout several rooms. This can be done on high or low settings and can be done throughout the entire home. There are also ceiling fans available that are ducted to allow you to heat your entire home very efficiently. There are several models available on the market today that do not even need to be plugged in to get hot air distributed.
Another way to heat your house is by using a ducted pellet stove and a ventless system. With a ducted pellet stove the pilot light is connected to ducting system that takes the warm air and sends it to all of the rooms. Most of these stoves have controls that are found on top or near the chimney that allow you to adjust the temperature and turn on/off the flame. You do not need a ventless system because the stove heats air directly through the fuel source. A traditional wood burning stove does not work in this manner because the wood has to be burned extremely hot in order to make a difference.
Ventless systems work exactly the same way as a ducted pellet stove except the pilot light is connected to vents that are located all around the house. These vents can be opened and closed as needed to evenly distribute warm air throughout the house. A very nice thing about the ductless system is that you do not have to worry about the furnace getting in the way because you do not have a duct system that exits the house. You can install ceiling fans throughout the room that are connected to the vents so that even more warm air is distributed to all parts of the house. Some ceiling fans come with remote controls that are cordless, making them very convenient for use.
If you like to use electricity, ducted pellet stoves are an excellent choice. They can be run on electricity and will distribute hot air throughout the entire room without the pilot light or any other extra appliances that take up space. Electric hot air heaters are also available for use with these stoves. There are some disadvantages to using electric stoves versus a traditional fireplace. Most of the time they are more expensive to purchase and they do not burn as hot of a fire compared to a fireplace.
The most popular type of ducted pellet stoves are those that are ducted right into the basement. This allows the entire family to enjoy the warmth that is produced. It can be installed very easily and does not take up a lot of room. If you want to save money, you can install a system that feeds warm air into your basement through ducts that are attached to the outside of the home.
