What Are Pellets?

Pellets are produced from compressed wood or other biomass materials. Once loaded into the hopper, they are automatically fed into the combustion chamber to produce heat.

Pellet Insert Vs. Wood or Gas?

Twin City Fireplaces offers a wide selection of home heating appliances, including wood-burning, gas, and pellet inserts. A pellet insert is a stove that burns pellets made from compressed wood. Which is the best option for your home? Pellet inserts are an excellent choice for Midwesterners who want a clean, energy-efficient way to heat their home without increasing their carbon footprint. Pellet inserts are also easy to operate and can heat a single room or an entire house. Wood-burning and gas fireplaces and stoves are other popular options for home heating. However, both require more maintenance than a pellet insert.

The Benefits of a Pellet Fireplace Insert:

Converting a Gas Fireplace to Pellet

Twin City Fireplace is a licensed general contractor, which is why so many homeowners choose us for their gas fireplace to pellet insert conversions. Pellet inserts are available in a range of sizes and designs to give you the wood-burning experience you desire. Since pellets are compressed wood, it combusts more efficiently, providing a higher level of continuous heat than a conventional gas fireplace. Plus, a pellet insert is better for the environment too.

Easy Operation

A pellet insert is also much easier to operate. Simply pour a bag of wood pellets into the hopper and adjust the thermostat. When the room temperature falls below the temperature setting, the fireplace or stove insert will automatically ignite, and the pellets will drop into the combustion chamber to fuel the heat. Pellets are typically available in 20-pound and 40-pound bags in assorted hardwood species like applewood, hickory, mesquite, and more. In addition, some pellet fuels are infused with spices that fill the air with a fresh scent. Explore our two showrooms in the Twin Cities to purchase premium pellets for your insert.
