recommend not to buy a pellet wood stove because you will depend on
availability of pellets. When peak oil hits hard and the supply lines
slow down or stop, you would not be able to use firewood, books,
newspaper, etc. to stay warm.

Alternative Green Heating for Your Home:
Premium Wood Pellets
THE ROCK, GA. (Sept. 24, 2008)
—Wood pellets are a growing trend as an alternative source of energy
for both residential and commercial consumers as the cost of energy
continues to escalate. The U.S. Energy Information Administration announced
residential heating oil prices are expected to increase by 31 percent and
natural gas prices are predicted to rise by 22 percent for the 2008 heating
season when compared to the 2007 season. Pellet fuel is affordable,
environmentally friendly and renewable, making it a hot commodity in the
race to find alternative sources of energy, and manufacturers are seeing an
increase in business as a result.
“Pellet fuel is becoming a mainstream heating resource because
it is economically priced and readily available for consumers wanting to
reduce the high energy costs,” says Phillip Fallin, president and CEO
of The Rock Wood Products, LLC. “Over the past year our business has
increased exponentially and we are continuing to open in new markets across
the East Coast, including Maryland and New York .”
Wood pellets are composed of compressed hardwood timber by-products
and other waste materials, and they can be use for heating, grilling or
used as dry animal bedding. These pellets are in high demand for their
economic, environmental and efficient appeal and are already being used in
approximately 800,000 homes across America . Manufacturers are
producing more than 1 million tons a year to meet growing demands according
to the Pellet Fuels Institute.
Unlike current energy sources such as oil, electric heat and propane,
premium wood pellets are a renewable and eco friendly solution to an energy
problem. Pellets are made of wood by-products which recycles excess
material from the logging industry and reduces waste that would otherwise
be deposited in landfills. Additionally, pellet fuel is clean burning and
is not hazardous to air quality. “Rock Wood premium wood pellets only
uses recycled hardwood biomass, making the product 99 percent combustion
efficient with an ash content less than one percent, making wood pellets
both economic and environmentally-friendly choice for heating,” says
Wood pellets can be used in a variety of home heating
appliances such as freestanding pellet stoves, fireplace inserts or
furnaces. Pellets are also an effective and popular fuel source for large
establishments such as schools or commercial facilities. In addition, wood
pellets have been utilized for other uses including barbecue grills and
even as animal bedding as a clean alternative to sawdust.
Homeowners and facility purchasers can find pellet fuel and
appliances at a variety of locations including independent hardware stores,
such as Thomaston Hardware, fireplace dealers, nurseries, feed and garden
supply stores or directly from the manufacturer. “We sell our wood
pellets in a variety of quantities and can refer customers to their nearest
retail provider,” says Fallin.
As fall approaches and fossil fuel prices continue to rise,
homeowners and businesses alike are preparing for cooler weather and
investing in pellet fuel heating solutions to stay warm and save money. For
