To light the fire in the wood-burning stove we suggest to place thin wood on top of some crumpled paper, put fire to the paper and open the air register so as to facilitate combustion.
Once the fire is started, you can close the air register, which will make combustion go slower, making the fire last longer.
The wood-burning stove is one of the few heating systems that do not require power supply. Even if you have an electric blackout if you have a wood stove you can continue to have heating.
The pellet stove is firstly an electronic appliance and therefore it needs to be connected to the electrical supply.
The main electronic components are: mother board, fan and smoke extractor.
Let’s see how it actually works:
When you tunr the stove on, the glow plug under the burner basket heats up, after a few seconds the pellet is let in the basket through the ??? turned by the pellet motor. The fire lights up and the smoke extractor sucks the smoke and forces it towards the chimney.
On their journey to the chimney the smoke release part of their heat and the fan blows the hot air in the room.
The first reason why many decide to buy a pellet stove is certainly the convenience to exploit the technology without having to give up the old fire pleasure. In fact, the pellet stove mounts an electronic control unit on which it is possible to set many parameters including times on and off, and the days of use.
Another strong point is undoubtedly the savings you get from using pellets instead of traditional fuels such as methane and diesel.
Finally, for those who can decide between wood and pellets, another point in favor of the latter is the cleanliness. In fact there is no need to load several times a day the stove, nor to open the door risking to spill ashes or have in the house the wood that inevitably leaves residues.
The look of the thermo stove is very similar to the pellet stove but technically it has the characteristics boiler. In fact, in addition to radiating heat to the environment where it is installed, the thermo stove heats mainly the water, by feeding the domestic heating system.
It can be connected directly to the radiators with the only function of heating the rooms or it can also heat sanitary water. By using a buffer or water tank, you can keep the water hot and use it also when the stove is off, making hot water available at all times.
The first advantage is the production of heating and hot water with only one combustion process, but there are also other factors regarding the installation such as:
⦁ the thermo stove does not need a special room, but can be installed in any room in your home and often, if the lining, shape and size allow it, it becomes a real decorative object;
⦁ the thermo stove fits in nicely in any room in your home, without having to hide the heating system;
⦁ the thermo stove allows the combustion air control;
⦁ the thermo stove's working time can be programmed.
