Wood pellets stove overview

Wood pellet stoves and wood pellet boilers have been around for many years but it is not until recently that pellet stoves have become a practical heating option (in my opinion) for customers right across the UK.

We offer Klover wood pellet stoves and boilers which have a network of trained dealers, servicing engineers, and installers covering the UK. Spares parts are also stocked in the UK. A very important factor to bear in mind when choosing a pellet stove is that they are not as maintenance free as a traditional wood stove and you do need to know that there are trained professionals (and parts) at hand when needed.

It is all very well installing a new wood pellet stove but it is not ideal if it goes wrong in midwinter and the spares have to come from Canada, for example.....

There is now also a consistent supply of wood pellets across the UK so getting fuel should be no problem.
Wood pellets are a renewable fuel and are a method of providing very low carbon carbon heating. This is increasingly important in this age of climate change and also to help comply with new climate change regulations like building regulations part L1 A and B.

Klover pellet stoves have an internal reservoir of pellets that you fill up. Some can also be fed from a large external hopper through a vacuum feed system.

The internal pellet compartment on our pellet stoves will generally only need filling every 24/72 hours depending on how cold it is.

The pellets are fed into the fire compartment of the stove by an internal screw or auger. This means that the combustion in a pellet stove is highly controllable - a relatively small amount of pellets are burnt fiercely, with a high oxygen supply. This is the most efficient form of combustion and is why most Klover pellet stoves are over 90% efficient. The heat output of the stove is regulated by regulating the amount of fuel being fed into the fire by the auger.

The fire is started electrically so no need for matches or fire-lighters. An ignition coil ignites the first few pellets.

These pellet stoves are very automated you can set the time that they come on and off (much like a gas boiler) and also the desired level of heat output. If you want the stove to come on an hour before you get in from work then that is easily done.

There are also many central heating wood pellet stoves available that provide hot water and heating. There is a wide choice of outputs right up to large utility type boilers big enough to power even a large house which would be housed in a garage or outhouse.

If you are running underfloor heating from your pellet boiler stove then you will also need a thermal store or buffer tank as the pellet stoves may otherwise cycle on and off too frequently.
