Pellet stove - prices and running costsA pellet stove is suitable for heating a single room. It is similar to a fireplace and is also connected like this.
A distinction is made in such individual ovens between the devices that release the heat only in the air, and the water-bearing stoves, which heat with a portion of the heat produced water to support the central heating of the house.
Pellet single ovens for the living room
If a pellet stove in the living area to be set, of course, the optics also plays a major role, so there are such single ovens in a variety of designs. He should fit well into the facility and be designed to fit the heat demand of the room. Something disturbing some people feel the noise caused by the fan. He is especially active in the warm-up phase. Sensitive people should therefore place such an oven as far as possible from where they normally sit. Also, the flame when burning pellets is not as nice as a fireplace, so the stove can stand quietly a little further away.
A pellet stove needs an electrical connection and a connection to the chimney for the exhaust air. In the oven, a container is integrated, in which for one or more days sufficient pellets are filled by hand, which then automatically
be transported with a screw conveyor into the combustion chamber.
There, the pellets are burned and release the heat to the room. The ash falls into a collection container, which should be emptied regularly. Pellets can usually be filled even when the oven is in operation. The heating power can be adjusted by hand, some ovens are equipped for control but also via a remote control.
Water-bearing pellet stoves
Water-bearing pellet stoves have water pockets around the combustion chamber. The firing process heats the water in these pockets and forwards them through pipes to a heat accumulator. From there, the energy can be used to support the central heating or for the hot water supply of the house. In small apartments or houses, a water-bearing pellet stove may replace the central heating under certain circumstances, but in general, a pellet heating in the basement is better suited, in which a single oven serves only as an additional source of heat.
The cheapest pellet stoves are available from about 1000 euros, the water-bearing models from about 3000 euros. In the latter, however, the connection to the heat storage and the central heating is still required. The pellets needed for heating cost about 200 to 250 euros per ton, with the heat output of a tonne of pellets is about 500 liters of fuel oil or 500 cubic meters of natural gas.
