PELLETS 2017-10-26T14:45:59+00:00


Pellet fuel is a renewable, clean-burning and efficient home-heating alternative currently used throughout North America. It is a biomass product made of renewable substances – generally recycled wood waste otherwise known as sawdust. There are currently more than 600,000 homes in the United States using wood pellets for heat, in freestanding stoves, fireplace inserts and even pellet boiler furnaces. Pellet fuel for heating can also be found in such large-scale environments as schools and government buildings.

Both soft- and hard-wood pellets are available for purchase right here at Mainline Home Energy Services in clean, easy-to-handle bags and by the ton! Mainline also delivers right to your home and can conveniently place your pellets for easier access.

Did you know? One bag of pellet fuel equals 2.5 gallons of oil, or one ton equals 1½ cords of wood!

Why Burn Pellets?

Pellet fuel is environmentally friendly and safe for humans and animals because they are carbon neutral, which keeps the greenhouse effect in check. When you burn with high-efficiency, Mainline-sourced products, you burn less and get more heat into your home.

What is Biomass?

What is biomass fuel?

Wood pellets, wood chips, cordwood, waste paper, along with dozens of other products and by-products capable of being used for energy, are all examples of biomass fuel. The main principle of biomass is that it is renewable. The consistency and burn efficiency of pellet fuel produces a fraction of the particulate emissions of raw biomass such as wood logs. Pellet burners feature the lowest particulate matter emissions of all solid fuels burners.

Many pellet manufacturers take by-products and refine them into pencil-sized pellets that are uniform in size, shape, moisture, density and energy content. Why not simply burn raw biomass? The moisture content of pellets is substantially lower. Less moisture means higher BTU value and easier handling especially in freezing situations with green raw biomass materials. Also, the density of pellet fuel is substantially higher than raw biomass . More fuel can be transported in a given truck space, and more energy can be stored at your site. Lastly, pellets are more easy to handle. Their shape and size allows for a smaller  feed system that reduces costs.
