Frequently asked questions

Use our pellet fuel calculator to compare the cost of using wood pellets to natural gas, propane, coal, electric, fuel oil and even hardwood. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much you can save.

  • A typical homeowner uses 3 tons of pellets per heating season at a cost of about $750. 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 118 gallons #2 fuel oil. (Energy Information Administration)
  • 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 compared to the same amount of oil reduces CO2 emissions by about 1.5 tons. Total emissions offset this year will be nearly 4.5 million tons of CO2.
  • 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)
  • According to the latest available statistics, 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)
