For most homeowners, a wood pellet stove is a secondary heating appliance that helps them save money on their conventional heating bill. It’s very common for a pellet stove or wood pellet insert to be used sparingly while the house relies mostly on the thermostat and the oil or gas burner to do the bulk of the house’s heating.
