Pellet stove inserts provide heat to a home or cabin and are an alternative to traditional fireplaces. Pellet stoves are a type of fireplace that use pellets instead of wood logs, and pellet stove inserts can be built into an existing fireplace or can be a standalone unit. Pellet stove inserts weigh several hundreds of pounds and include a stove pipe attachment that allows for the transfer of smoke from the stove to an exhaust outside. The pellet stove insert also has a feeding system that transfers the pellets and an electric starter that ignites the pellet stove. A thermostat keeps the heat at your desired temperature.

It is important to spend the money to hire the right contractor to install your pellet stove insert. This will ensure that the installation is done correctly and that the stove will function properly.
