I'm back in a new house with a Harman Accentra! I could not be happier than to bring you the best of the best wood pellets for 2017. I have been on a bit of a hiatis for the past 2 years after selling my home with the Lopi Leyden. (awesome stove) But now we are back to bring you the best reviews possible for the heating season of 2017-18.
Best Heating Wood Pellets for 2017
Here is the list of pellets I have received so far and my pics of, what I think, are going to be the best of 2017 not in any particular order;
- Northern Warmth Douglas Fir / Supreme Douglas Fir
- North Idaho Energy Logs! awesome!
- Maine Woods & Maine Woods Softwood (great priced pellets that burns like a champ)
- Hamer's Hot Onesamer's Hot Ones
- Northern Warmth Purley Pine
- EasyBlazeTM (the softwood is one of my favorites)
- Lacrete Wood Pellets
- Logik-e Softwoods
- Turman Hardood Pellets (just waiting on my bag)
- Golden Fire - West Coast
- Pro Pellet
- Magic Sparks - Very nice!!
EasyBlaze pellets hit the scene this year in a huge way. These pellets were fantastic! Heat output was amazing and the ash was almost non exestent. Both the Softwood and the Blend were very impressive. You can find a retailer by visiting their website and submitting your zip code. They will email you back pretty quickly. I have seen these pellets for sale as far north as Southern Massachusetts.
Northern Warmth Doug Fir & Supreme Doug Fir Pellets
You can't argue with those west coast Douglas Fir wood pellets. These trees, especially any old growth trees, really make for a fantastic pellet. You can learn more about these pellets along with finding a retailer of these pellets using The Northern Warmth dealer locatator on their brand new website here.... Northern Warmth Pellets
La Crete Wood Pellets
I have been burning these super sweet pellets for years now. I alsway get a few samples mailed out to me. They have been a tried and true softwood pellet that puts out great heat and has low ash. The only down side to these pellets are the bags. At times I find them too thin. However, by saving on added costs of packaging material, you are getting a much higher quality pellet for less money which is usually passed on to the end user.
Northern Warmth Purley Pine
These are on the low end of cost in the Northern Warmth line up but I was super impressed. Very, Very low ash and super heat output.
Hamer's Hot Ones
Out of Ohio, Hamer puts out a super awesome pellet. Open the bag and take a wiff of what reminds me of a newly laid oak floor in the house. These burn super hot and have low ash. They are nice and dense and feel like little rocks falling through your finger. The hopper hang ups are almost non existant with these super dense and hot pellets.
Golden Fire Wood Pellets
You won’t find another pellet that is dried to industry leading low moisture content of less than 2.5%, and unprecedented average of only 1.9%! Less moisture means you don’t have to burn off excess water in the pellets which results in more heat, heating your home faster, and an extremely low ash content that makes it easier to cleanup.
