Helpful Hints for WiseWay Pellet Stoves
Burning Hardwood Pellet Fuel


Installation:

  • Have your stove installed by a certified chimney installer (see page 7 of the Installation and Operating Manual). Do not make changes to the draft recommendations during the installation of the chimney or stove. This is a wood stove that burns pellet fuel, if adequate draft is not accomplished this stove will not operate properly and can potentially cause smoke to come from the stove. If draft is compromised, it can drastically impede the performance of the stove, especially when using hardwood pellet fuel.
  • Long horizontal chimney runs will impede draft and cause poor performance of this stove.
  • Basement installations and air tight houses will require an outside air source.
  • Barometric draft control and chimney caps are recommended for best results.
     

Performance:

  • Use super premium pellets that contain .5% or less ash content. Pellet quality and performance will vary from brand to brand. Experiment with different brand pellets (See page 5 of the Installation and Operating Manual).
  • Learn your stove! A WiseWay pellet stove has no moving parts and requires no electricity; it does however require your attention much like a wood stove, especially when burning a hardwood pellet. CLEARING YOUR SECONDARY BURN PLATE IS A MUST WHILE BURNING HARDWOOD PELLETS. This is simple. NOTE: surfaces will be hot.
    First, remove the ashtray and dispose of any ashes (see page 12 of the Installation and Instruction Manual for proper ash disposal), and reinstall ashtray.
    Second, remove secondary burn plate. This will allow any built up ashes and hot coals to fall into the ashtray. Inspect the secondary burn plate, any layers of ash should be removed and discarded. Lightly tap the secondary burn plate on the edge of your disposal container to clear any clogged hole(s) in the burn plate. This will resume proper air flow through the burn plate; reinstall the secondary burn plate.
    Considering the numerous different fuels and installations, there is no one formula for how often this needs to be performed. Letting the secondary burn plate build up with ashes can choke the stove causing a drastic decrease in temperature and increase the possibility of smoldering fuel and smoke.
  • Until experience has helped you establish a regular routine it is not recommended to leave the stove unattended for long periods of time. ALWAYS EMPTY THE ASHTRAY AND CLEAR THE SECONDARY BURN PLATE PRIOR TO LEAVING THE STOVE UNATTENDED!

Questions:

  • If you have questions, additional needs, or encounter problems, please contact the Dealer where you made your purchase. This is the quickest remedy to whatever challenges you might encounter. If your Dealer cannot help you, they will contact their Distributor.
     

Pellet facts

What are pellets?
Pellet fuel is a renewable, clean-burning and cost stable home heating alternative currently used throughout North America. It is a biomass product made of renewable substances – generally recycled wood waste. There are approximately 1,000,000 homes in the U.S. using wood pellets for heat, in freestanding stoves, fireplace inserts, furnaces and boilers. Pellet fuel for heating can also be found in such large-scale environments as schools and prisons. North American pellets are produced in manufacturing facilities in Canada and the United States, and are available for purchase at fireplace dealers, nurseries, building supply stores, feed and garden supply stores and some discount merchandisers.

In short, pellet fuel is a way to divert millions of tons of waste from landfills and turn it into energy.

What is biomass fuel?
Cord wood, wood pellets, wood chips, waste paper, along with dozens of other agricultural products and by-products capable of being used for energy, are all examples of biomass fuel. The most compelling principle of biomass is that it is renewable. The remarkable consistency and burn efficiency of pellet fuel produces a fraction of the particulate emissions of raw biomass. Pellet burners feature the lowest particulate matter emissions of all solid fuels burners. Given the proper Sustainable Forest Initiatives and agricultural management, biomass is virtually limitless, and has proven to be price stable in comparison with fossil fuels.

The majority of North America’s forest is second-growth, and requires periodic treatment in order to address forest health and fire mitigation. A tremendous amount of unusable material remains on the forest floor after such treatment. This material is rejected by high-end wood product manufacturers but is a perfect resource for commercial pellet manufacturers.

By engineering crops and waste such as cornstalks, straw, and residual forest waste, pellets can utilize millions of tons of waste and put them to work.

Many pellet manufacturers take by-products (like wood waste) and refine them into pencil-sized pellets that are uniform in size, shape, moisture, density and energy content. Why not simply burn raw biomass? First, the moisture content of pellets is substantially lower (4% to 8% water, compared to 20% to 60% for raw biomass). Less moisture means higher BTU value and easier handling especially in freezing situations with green raw biomass materials. Second, the density of pellet fuel is substantially higher than raw biomass (40 lbs. per cubic foot verses 10-25 lbs. per cubic foot in raw material form). More fuel can be transported in a given truck space, and more energy can be stored at your site. Third, pellets are more easily and predictably handled. Their uniform shape and size allows for a smaller and simpler feed system that reduces costs. This high density and uniform shape can be stored in standard silos, transported in rail cars and delivered in truck containers.

Raw materials
In Canada, wood pellets are made from material that would otherwise be wasted. This includes sawmill residues -- sawdust, planer shavings, and sometimes even a little bark -- and diseased and insect-killed trees and logging waste that sawmills have left behind in the forest after logging.

Our industry turns this waste into clean, renewable, carbon-neutral solid bio fuel.

Benefits of pellets
There are numerous benefits achieved by utilizing pellet fuel, including economical and environmental. Pellet fuel is utilized in a varied settings and applications, such as home heating appliances and large scale boilers in commercial operations.

There are an estimated 1,000,000 residences/businesses in the U.S. currently heating with pellets.

  • A typical homeowner uses 3 tons of pellets per heating season at a cost of about $825. At an average retail price of $250/ton, pellets offer a fuel cost per million BTU of $19.05. To offer a fuel cost of $19.05 per million BTU, # 2 fuel oil and propane would have to be priced at $2.05/gal and $1.36/gal, respectively! (Fuel Value Calculator, USFS, 2008)
  • One ton of wood pellets has the energy equivalency of 2.8 barrels of #2 fuel oil. (Energy Information Administration)
  • Direct thermal conversion of 3 million tons of wood pellets displaces the equivalent of almost 8.5 million barrels of #2 fuel oil. That is 356 million gallons! (Energy Information Administration)
  • Direct thermal conversion of pellets has an efficiency level of approximately 80%.
  • Pellet stoves have extremely low particulate emissions due to their high burn efficiency and the density of the fuel (<1 gm/hr). (Environmental Protection Agency
  • Every ton of pellets used vs. oil reduces CO2 emissions by about 1.5 tons. Total emissions offset this year will be nearly 4.5 million tons of CO2.
  • Pellet distribution costs less than the cost of distributing wood chips.
  • Wood pellets have a fossil energy ratio (net energy output/fossil energy used) of 12:1. (Net Energy Value Study, University of Wisconsin Green Bay)
  • As of 2009, pellet manufacturing directly employs approximately 2,300 people in the U.S. and supports thousands of industry-related jobs in fields such as transportation and logging. (North America’s Wood Pellet Sector, Spelter & Toth, 2009)
