Long Outdoor Table: Todd, a customer from New York, explained: “We needed a table for a get together. Rather than buying more wood, I used left over studs for the frame, and pallet wood around it.”

How to Prepare Your Pellet Stove for the Summer Pellet Stove Best PracticesWhen the little stretches of warm days transition into consistent summer weather – you’re ready to let your pellet stove go on vacation. But, there are extra steps you should consider taking to protect your precious heating investment.

Turn off your stove and unplug it from the surge protector, or unplug the entire thing. Why do you need a surge protector? Most modern pellet stoves have a circuit board that can be damaged without protection from even small electrical surges caused by power outages. Be sure to check your manual for information on electrical recommendations.) Once you’re fully disconnected, make sure it’s completely cooled off before moving forward.

Mix and Match Your Wood Pellet and Wood Bricks Purchase!

Although we rolled out our improved online shopping cart a couple of years ago, we’re still getting surprised reactions from customers about it. Did you know that you can select multiple products to add to your purchase when ordering from, both by phone and online? If you’re speaking to one of our experts by phone, just ask him or her about adding another type of fuel to your order. Shopping CartIf you’re shopping online, simply select your desired brand and the number of tons you’d like from your zip code’s gallery. Once it’s added to your cart, select the Continue Shopping button that will appear on a pop-up box. This will bring you back to the gallery, where you can select another type of fuel. Continue this until you’re ready to view your cart, make any changes, select your delivery type and check out.

Why is this mix and match by the ton option important? Well, you might want to set up a
strategic burning strategy for the next heating season. If you have been burning hardwood pellets, you might be curious about upgrading to softwood. Or, you might want to try something new. Perhaps you already burn softwood pellets, but you’re thinking about burning a softwood with a higher heat output during those extra cold months. Comparing your burning and heating experience with different types of wood pellets will help take care of those pellet curiosities.

Softwood Wood Pellets as Ice Melt

100% natural wood fiber to make ice melt a bit quicker and to provide tractionWe recently heard from a customer that he had run out of ice melt, but didn’t have anything to put down for traction on ice that had accumulated on his walkway overnight. He said his wife thought of throwing down some Cleanfire Pacific wood pellets on the snowy/icy area – and they were pleased with the outcome!

Of course, results and timing will vary based on the situation. But we think the idea of using a 100% natural wood fiber to make ice melt a bit quicker and to provide traction is great!

We decided to make a timelapse of wood pellets on ice to see what would happen. Here’s a sped-up close look of wood pellets soaking up moisture for about 20 minutes.

How Heavy Snow Can Affect Your Wood Pellet Stove

Pellet Stove Vent BlockageThe venting on your wood pellet stove can be installed horizontally, vertically or both. The exterior vent allows for proper air flow within the stove, and for the escape of exhaust. If it’s blocked by dense snow – your stove’s ability to ignite and/or stay burning efficiently could be hindered.

A common exhaust setup is horizontal – straight through the exterior wall (See Fig. A). If your wood pellets aren’t burning through fully – this blockage could be the reason…because the exiting air is an important part of your stove’s operation.  (See Figure B).

A similar kind of venting is through the wall with a vertical rise (See Figure C). Vertical piping raises the exhaust further up the exterior wall. This kind of setup creates less risk of snow blockage. However, there’s a possibility of some blockage by strong snow drifts, or a very large snow accumulation.

Pellet stoves can also have exhaust vents exiting through the roof – with some variations  (See Figure D). If your roof has heavy snow piled up that hasn’t slid off or been pushed off, the vent could be blocked.

Proper air flow is key for efficient pellet stove operation. Make sure to check for blockage – no matter how your stove is vented.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about your pellet burning experience. Quality Certified fuels are backed by a Quality Guarantee, which is valid for a full 30 days after your delivery date.
