Understanding the Differences: Wood Pellet Stoves vs. Traditional Wood Stoves

Cost-Effective Heating with Pellet Stoves

Pellet stoves offer an economical alternative to traditional wood logs, costing 70% less to operate. In Malta, a €7 bag of wood logs lasts one or two evenings, while our 15kg bags of premium wood pellets last two or three days. The cost comparison is clear: pellet stoves run at 30 to 40 cents an hour, while traditional stoves can cost a euro or more. Plus, storing a winter’s worth of pellets requires only a medium-sized cabinet.

Minimal Ash Production

Wood pellet heaters are known for their low ash production. You’ll only need to empty the built-in container once or twice a week, a significant reduction compared to traditional fireplaces that leave buckets of ash to clean.

Simplified and Safer Installation

Pellet stoves offer a more straightforward and safer installation process compared to log burners. Though both require chimneys, pellet stoves work with smaller ones and use a fan to forcibly expel fumes, ensuring cleaner and safer burning.

Enhanced Safety for Home and Family

The sealed combustion chamber of a pellet stove ensures safety for children and protects against sparks landing on flammable materials. The stove’s body remains cool to the touch, with only the see-through glass requiring caution.

Efficient Whole-Home Heating

Wood pellet stoves provide more power than log burners, with our top models delivering 14kW of heat while consuming less fuel. This efficiency allows for greater heat output, warming your entire home rather than just one room.

Enjoy a Warm Home Upon Waking

Imagine waking up to a warm house without the hassle of kindling a fire. Our pellet stoves can be programmed to start at a specific time, allowing you to enjoy your morning coffee in comfort.

Clean and Odour-Free Operation

Pellet stoves burn wood in a sealed chamber, preventing smoke and odours from entering your home. The combustion fumes are forced out through the chimney by a fan, ensuring a clean and pleasant environment.

Hassle-Free Heating Experience

Forget the romantic but tedious task of lighting a traditional fireplace. With a pellet stove, a warm wood fire is just a button push away. The stove automatically feeds the wood, and the pellet tank lasts for days, letting you relax and enjoy.

Vibrant and Powerful Flames

Modern pellet stoves boast impressive flames that rival those of log burners. Though early models had weaker flames, our latest offerings provide a bright and robust flame, adding both warmth and ambiance to your home.
