HearthStone ‘Heritage’ Pellet Stove

Here at Friends of the Sun we have been selling, servicing, and promoting the benefits of heating your home with green, renewable pellet fuel since 1984.  For those interested in the origin of the pellet stove, developed by Dr. Jerry Whitfield out in Washington during the early 1980’s, see this accurate blog post.

Since that time, residential and commercial heating with pelletized fuels has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry.  Appliance choices now include hundreds of models of pellet stoves and fireplace inserts, as well as central heating furnaces and boilers, and even pellet fireplaces that can be framed into a wall!

Another possible option for those wishing to heat their entire home with pellets, consider a central heating system!  Hot water boilers and hot air furnaces are both available for larger homes, and it may even be possible to convert your present heating system to burn pellets!  More information on these high efficiency, extremely convenient systems is available at a friendly local business, Vermont Renewable Fuels, of East Dorset, Vermont!


From here, we will discuss why to go with pellet as your primary heating fuel.  Also, an honest talk regarding whether pellet heat is right for you!  Don’t be deceived, a pellet stove is not magic – it must be cared for and maintained to deliver its maximum efficiency!
