Wood pellet fuel is made from using wood by products such as sawdust and chips. The wood used is dried then compressed and extruded through a die with such force that it naturally binds together to form pellets. Because of the density of the pellet and the low moisture content, it is a very efficient fuel with a high BTU value and little emissions making it environmentally friendly. Pellet fuel puts out a lot of heat like traditional wood stoves, but has much less clean up due to the low ash content. Pellet fuel comes in convenient 40 pound bags that make loading easy without the mess that can occur from carrying wood.
Hamer’s Hot Ones are made of Appalachian Hardwoods that are sustainably sourced. We do not include any additives or binders when making pellets. Hamer’s Hot Ones are premium grade and have less than 1% ash content – which means very little clean up.
This renewable fuel is economical and has not experienced the steep, high prices like other fuel industries. To see how much you can save by using pellet fuel, go to the Pellet Fuels Institute web site and use the fuel calculator.
