Hardwood or Softwood?

People ask us all the time: "Which I burn, hardwood pellets or softwood pellets?"

We think it is a very personal preference. It’s all about choosing the right fuel for you based on a variety of factors, including stove, budget, and the amount of maintenance you’re willing to do.


soft and hard wood

FACT:  Most pellet stoves today are built to burn both hardwood and softwood pellets. 

So, choosing a fuel is a trying out which specific brand burns well in the stove. Usually it depends on the quality of the pellets rather than the species. 

FACT:  How a pellet is made from more important than the species of wood used. 

We just work with pellet mills that can guarantee a frequent supply of clean raw material and a quality manufacturing process, so you are able to be confident that you’re getting a high quality fuel – regardless of species! We regularly test our pellets for ash content, moisture level and heating value to assure you’re happy with your fuel. (Learn more) 

FACT:  Softwood pellets generally have higher calorie output and little ash. 

Getting an ideal fuel is about striking a balance you’re comfortable with between cost and quality. It is generally true that softwood pellets burn cleaner and hotter. In our lab, we perform regular, independent testing on all of our pellets to ensure consistent quality.

Your privacy is safe with us. We hate spam as much as you do.
