Woodpellets.com Service in Maine via D&J Home & Hearth

 

Wood Pellet Delivery in Maine

In the early 1970’s, Romeo Jr. and Maggie Pimpare moved to Sanford Maine with their three young children and started a car repair business. The business eventually expanded into manufacturing custom made portable buildings, and when wood pellet stoves were added to the shop for sale in 1997, D&J Home & Hearth was born.

In 2015 Wayne, Wendy & Randy bought the thriving business from their parents. Today the company is a leading distributer of Harman, Ecochoice, Vermont Casting, DutchWest, Majestic pellet, wood, gas stoves, inserts and fireplaces.

In order to offer expert wood pellet customer service along with the convenience of ordering premium wood pellets online, D&J has recently partnered with Woodpellets.com.

Now any wood pellet stove owner within D&J Home & Hearth’s pellet delivery service area can now place an order through Woodpellets.com online or by calling 1-800-PELLETS.

Woodpellets.com is excited to partner with a family-run business that values customer service as much as we do!

Wood Pellets Gaining Popularity in the Equestrian World

Wood Pellets as Horse Bedding

Horse bedding is used in stalls to absorb urine and moisture, and is a necessary part of properly maintaining clean stalls. Ideal bedding material makes cleaning up messes easy, is easy to store, and is the least wasteful.

Straw and wood shavings are commonly used, but using softwood wood pellets as horse bedding is becoming popular among experienced horse and stable owners.

Pellet bedding is perfect for stables with tight space constraints, because storing wood pellets takes up significantly less space than other alternatives. One bag of wood pellets takes up only 1.5 cubic feet of space in storage, but expands after proper wetting to nearly 4 cubic feet of bedding.

Because wood pellets are made of densely compacted, kiln-dried wood fibers – they are twice as absorbent as shavings, and hold four times the odor elimination power!

How to Stretch Out the Cost of Wood Pellet Fuel Over Several Months

Much like with any fuel purchase – buying your wood pellets or wood bricks for the heating season can be a significant expense. The Flex Savings Plan (FSP) was created to make saving up for that large order easier.

Enrolling in the FSP gives you the ability to save up over time with adjustable monthly deposits to your Woodpellets.com account. Once you decide you’re ready to order, all those deposits have added up to an account credit which will be applied to your fuel order.

 Flex Savings Plan Benefits

  • Custom Plans: Your monthly payment amount can be adjusted at any time, and you decide how long to participate!
  • Easy Budgeting: Spread out that large payment over months! Your accumulated credit will be applied to your next order. 
  • No Risks: This plan was designed to help our customers, but you might change your mind. Suspend or cancel at any time!

The Flex Savings Plan is still new and unique within the wood pellet market – so we understand you might have some questions. We have compiled the most common questions about the FSP below. Feel free to post your own questions in the comment section!

How does the Flex Savings Plan work?

The plan works by automatically making a monthly deposit using an electronic check or credit card into your credit account in any amount over $25 that you are comfortable with. Each deposit is added to your Woodpellets.com account as credit to use on your next purchase. When you are ready to order, your accumulated credit amount will be deducted from the order balance.

The only wood pellet budgeting program in the industry!Are there any fees or hidden costs?

The FSP is a free way to help you budget for your fuel purchase. Your payment amounts are decided by you, and there are no extra fees. Think of it like a Christmas Club savings account; but one you use for your wood pellet fuel instead of presents.

How long does the plan last?

You can participate for as many months as you wish! When you place your order, you can just let us know if you’d like to continue or not. If you discontinue your plan, you can sign back up again whenever you’re ready. At any point, you can decide to opt out of the Flex Savings Plan, too. You’ll be refunded all of your accrued credit, less a 5% transaction fee.

Do I have to save a certain amount before ordering?

No – it’s up to you how much you want to save up. Most enrollees design their plan to cover the entire fuel order cost – but that is not mandatory. The duration of your specific plan and your monthly amount is completely up to you! We just require payments of at least $25.

I want to enroll now – but I don’t know what type or how much fuel I’ll be ordering yet.

That’s okay – because when you sign up for the Flex Savings Plan, you are not placing an order. When a Woodpellets.com professional helps you start your plan – you’ll just choose your payment type, the day you’d like your first payment to go through, and the amount you’d like to contribute each month. Later, whether you’ve accumulated $100 or $1000 in account credit, you can place your order whenever you’re ready.

Can I place my order now and apply FSP payments to that order?

No, sorry. The Flex Savings Plan is for future orders only – and we are unable to apply future payments to current orders.

Is it too late to change my payment amount? 

As long as your amount is at least $25, you can change your amount at any point during your plan. We named this program the Flex Savings Plan for a reason…it’s flexible! Just call 1-800-735-5387 to speak to a Woodpellets.com professional. He or she can make adjustments for you, and answer any questions you might have.

 

How do I sign up?

Getting started is easy. Call 1-800-PELLETS to enroll now!

Order Wood Pellets Early and Pick Your Delivery Month – or Wait and Pickup Yourself?

Do you typically pick up your wood pellet fuel? If so, have you really broken down the actual cost comparison of pick-up vs. delivery? Of course, coming home from work to see your wood pellets already neatly placed in your driveway is much more convenient, but it comes at a price.

Delivery or Pickup?Depending on where you live and where you buy your pellets, wood pellet and wood brick pick-up and delivery may be available as an option for you. If you are ordering from Woodpellets.com, the website or one of our Customer Service representatives will let you know your options depending on where you live.

Our customers will often ask if the delivery fee is worth it.  After years of experience walking through the pros and cons, Woodpellets.com team members have decided to put together a cost comparison formula:Delivery Vs Pickup Formula

Here are the following variables to keep in mind when crunching your own numbers:

  • Miles Roundtrip: This is the total distance traveled from your house to the pickup location and back.
  • Mileage Cost: Use the average miles/gallon you get in your vehicle, or calculate based on the IRS standard mileage rate for the year.
  • Cost per Hour: How much is your time worth? How might you be spending those hours if you weren’t busy picking up your fuel? Would you be earning money working? Spending time with your family? Getting house and yard work done? You might argue that your time is priceless. However, most people put some value on their time, so we typically use a $10 per hour example as the value of otherwise free time. 
  • Hours Spent: This is based on how far away you live from the pickup location, and loading/unloading time there and at home.
  • Ton(s) Loaded Per Trip: Most vehicles equipped for this task can carry between a half ton and one ton. Determine how much yours can take per trip.
  • Tons Used Annually On Average: Three to four tons is the most typical order size for Woodpellets.com customers. How much do you burn each heating season?

Another way to look at a delivery fee is by breaking down the added cost per bag – instead of on your order total:

If you divide a delivery charge of $59 across a standard order size of 3 tons…that’s only an added 39 cents per bag!

As always, if you have any questions…give us a call at 1-800-PELLETS! We are happy to assist you.

 

A Hard Look at the Current State of the Wood Pellet Industry

As a company in the business of selling wood pellets year round – we are always watching supply/demand fluctuations through the seasons. While it’s scary to think of another wood pellet shortage, it’s impossible to ignore the increasingly tight supply of pellets at the moment.

While demand continued to rise through the 2018-19′ heating season due to increased pellet stove sales and high oil prices, the supply took some serious hits leaving the pellet market in a delicate, vulnerable state.

Aside from the fairly recent series of catastrophic mill fires that crippled production, inventory building has been seriously hindered by weather. Last year’s winter stretched far into spring, which depleted much of the inventory normally built up over the summer. Plus, the extremely wet fall months and bitterly cold November led to historically low levels of raw material and finished product.

While we want to avoid causing a panic – we also want to be honest with our customers about what we’re seeing. For those who remember the winter of 2014, pellet shortages can occur very quickly and without much warning. However, right now the warning signs are glaring. For example, most mills currently have about 20 percent of the inventory as they had last year at this time – and even last year was tight.

In order to stay shortage-proof and avoid inevitable price increases, we strongly recommend you secure your pellet fuel for the next heating season now if you’re able…or at least well in advance.

Benefits of Wood Pellet Heating

In addition to the long term cost advantage over heating oil and propane, wood pellets have some additional benefits that you may be unaware of.

CO2 Cycle with Fossil Fuel Burning1. The carbon footprint of wood pellets can be neutral, or close to it. A study by The Alliance for Green Heat and VU University Amsterdam revealed that heating with wood pellets can emit about one tenth the carbon as heating with oil. If the forests where the wood pellet raw material has been taken from are sustainably managed, the overall carbon footprint is drastically reduced in comparison with fossil fuel heat.

Use Different Wood Pellets Throughout the Season to Burn Strategically

The demand for wood pellets made from douglas fir wood fiber has been increasing in recent years, regardless of the
higher price tag. These pellets have a significantly low ash content and a super hot heat output, making for an impressive burn experience.

See Chart >> Dry BTU Values by Wood Type

Pellets with a lower heat output are typically less expensive, while the ultra premium douglas fir wood pellets are far pricier. Many of our customers have been ordering multiple types of pellets for the heating season to coincide with the weather (saving the douglas fir wood pellets for the coldest parts of winter) which is a growing trend we refer to as “burning strategically”.
