Natures Heat Wood Pellets by Pennington

100_2027Pennington Wood Pellets are a clean-burning PREMIUM wood pellet with less than 1% ash produced. And because wood pellet stoves burn efficiently, there is almost complete combustion of the fuel, creating minimal smoke & air emissions. New England Wood Pellets is the producer up here in New England

Unlike some wood pellets, Nature’s Heat is a premium product, using ONLY 100% wood. Using woods makes Nature’s Heat Wood Pellets a denser, harder pellet … The harder the pellet, the slower and more evenly it burns. This makes it a very efficient fuel. Nature’s Heat wood pellets produce more heat energy with less ash and fewer “clinkers”, caused by a build-up of creosote.

The price of traditional forms of heating fuels have been fluctuating wildly in the last few years, but, wood pellets have been, and will continue to be, cost stable. It’s a heating fuel source that you can depend on in the years to come.

    I have tried these pellets on and off for several years, and now will only buy them in a pinch. I have read the complaints about the augers getting clogged and i know why. there is a big variation in these pellets burnability due to where they store them. At walmart for instance they store them outside, and when they sell them by the bag they leave them out in the elements with nothing protecting them from moisture. this is ok if you buy a whole ton wrapped in shrink wrap but not off of a pallet thats been opened. They burn great when the moisture content is not affected by the elements. but if you buy individual bags make sure they were stored undercover or you will be buying a new auger!

    After using several different pellets over the past three years and needing to save money we tried these pellets from Wal-Mart, we were pleasantly surprised by how clean they burned. We have currently bought 90 bags. By far, they are the best clean burning pellets we have bought and we will continue to buy them.

    I bought 80 bags of pennington pellets at walmart in Rhinelander Wisconsin and they will definately be the last ones that I buy. I have a Harman pellet stove and it keeps going out due to the fact that the pellets are to long and won"t go in the auger, thats very frustrating when it got 29 below last night and I have to keep getting up to check on the stove to keep it going. I called the company and they told me that they did"nt have any issues with there pellets. There junk.

    I have a Breckwell P2000 stove. I've had it for 3 years now. I bought 8 bags of these pellets from my local Walmart, they were marked down to $2.50 a bag. Now I know why, these pellets are junk, they must of fixed the length of the pellet from previous older reviews. With these pellets I have to clean the stove everyday. I have used lots of other pellets, these are very poor quality.

    These pellets are the worst I have ever used. I have had my pellet stove for 15 years. These pellets clog the auger are too long and some have a weird black glass like coating. Stay away from these pellets
    no good.

    These pellets clog the grate of the fire box. Lignetics burn better in my stove. I clean my stove weekly. I have burned three separate bags of Natures Heat Pellets and each bag has plugged the grate. The pellets overflow and burn outside the burn box. I couldn't leave it burn overnight or leave the house with it burning. I have also used O'Malleys and one other brand and did not have this issue.

    Using a Jamestown stove they seem to be a consistent length, but they seem to burn cooler then the other pellet I use. Not the worse pellet I've found but not the best either. I live in oregon and I do believe I am going to stick with the local product here. For .59 cents more per bag they burn hotter and cleaner

    I live in Pennsylvania and I have to say that the Pennington Nature's Heat Pellets is one of the worst I have used. I don't know if this is a bad batch but it leaves so much residue! The stove I have is by Breckwell Model P24.

    Moisture this year seems to be a problem with stuff that sat outside. Well wrapped stuff, but we had 2 6 inch rains this fall. Took 2 tons back to Home Depot. Bought a ton of Athens from WM. So far better...not the usual though. Penningtons were all I could get there this week. We'll see. So far my Quadrafire seems to prefer cheap pellets.

  • Comment Link Steve Friday, 18 January 2013 15:56 posted by Steve

    By far the worst pellets I have ever used. I bought four bags last winter and they wouldn't even burn in my Harman and that thing burns everything. Had to give the last three bags to a buddy with horses and I'm not sure they would even xxx on this things!

    I clean my stove WEEKLY , it runs 24 hrs a day in a shop with storage.
    I have a New England Stove PVDC 25
    These are the BEST pellets I have found so far Nice bright orange red color clearly Fir not hardwood, and have a BETTER rating from the stove council too.
    Little ash , burns hot, and is great. Beats the heck out of the Eureka brand pellets , they are very bad ...

    The Pennington wood pellets at Walmart's in the New England area this year with the black plastic wrap were produced at NEWP. The white ane red wraped pallets come out of Maine not NEWP. If you look at the top of the bag on the seam and see a stamp with NEWP that is we're they came from other wise they come from Maine.

    We just recently bought a home that had the Quadra Fire stove included. Well i bought 7 bags at Wal-Mart because the place i normally get them was closed for the Holidays and didn't realize i was about out of pellets. $5 a bag is pretty expensive considering other stores have them for around $4 and some change. But i didn't have a choice. Natures heat is o.k. they seem to burn much more faster than my normal brand. Puts out decent heat i guess. If they would bring the cost down i would probably by them more frequently. Be prepared to clean your stove once a day with these though.

    They seem decent. They're 3.80/bag at sam's club, so it's hard to beat unless they'd deliver.

    Bought 5 bags of these last month to experiment with. I have an Englander 25-PDVC stove. These are the absolute worst pellets I have used to date. Only fair to moderate heat output and the mess it leaves it horrible!! Plus, at $5 a bag in the Long Island area, even a worse deal. Stay away from these !!!

    I have never had any that lasted as long and had as little ash, funny but stoves must be very different. I have an old one, nothing automatic about it and these work great for me.

  • Comment Link Steve Sunday, 25 November 2012 04:35 posted by Steve

    I have used these pellets in a pinch over the last couple of years. I bought some just last week Not sure if they sub out manufacturing but WOW so far so good. I dont have a top of the line stove We have a big box Englander. It is not our primary source of heat. I am impressed so far. I am very familar with the history long pellets etc etc Dont know what they are doing but keep it up

    i have whitfield stove that i have had for 15 years. i have put everything in it over the years even the nature heat but this batch i got from local walmart pellets are to hard somthing not right with what holds them together (glue?) i thought i had a problem with my auger motor i replace it with no improvment so i took auger out to see what was jamming it could find nothing put it back together ran good for a little while could hear auger motor straining every so many cycles. took a pellet out of hopper tryed to break it took a lot of strainth to break i actually took a bite on one and it would just squish tight like it was plastic thats what was binding up my auger. i would stay clear of the pennington pellets i don't think its the length of the pellets it's what they are made of to gooey hard.

    I bought these at my local Walmart. The first time I opened the bag there was a little China-man inside. I asked him to break up the long pellets but he jumped out of the bag and kungfu'd me. Last time I buy these.

  • Comment Link Thom Sunday, 08 April 2012 12:37 posted by Thom

    Well, the saga continues since my last post on February 22nd. Every two days my stove shuts down because of jams. Am desperately trying to burn my last ten bags of Pennington Pellets before warm weather hits here in Maine. I have sifted every bag but due to the really long length of the pellets combined with the dust and fines still left after sifting my top feed augur jams up tighter than Dick's hat band and stove shuts down. Then I have to take out all the pellets in the hopper, vacuum around the auger, break up the long pellets (some 2 1/2inches long), reload the stove and start up again. So, all in all, if you buy Pennington Pellets then expect a lot of work to stay warm. I'll never buy them again and neither will about 50 others that I know here in my area. They've all had the same problems.

  • Comment Link Bluebailey Wednesday, 07 March 2012 14:19 posted by Bluebailey

    First season wtih a Timberwolf (Napolean)TPS35 stove, been throwing everything I can find in it. I vacuum sift all bags before they ever enter the hopper so fines are not an issue for me. The WORST pellet I could find! Bought one bag for like $3.22 and after burning it I spent the afternoon hammering out clinkers in the burn pot and wiping cresote off the walls in the stove! Glad I only bought 1 bag. Eastern MA local Wally World

    I have been buying these at Sam's Club for the past 3 years for my Harmon P68. I read alot of neagtive reviews but never had a problem...until now! Every bag I bought this year has extremely long pellets. My stove shut down 3 times because of jams. I have been mixing them with another brand and no more jams. Other than the extreme length, they are a good pellet. Right now in Western PA they are $3.98 a bag.

  • Comment Link Thom Wednesday, 22 February 2012 22:35 posted by Thom

    When I first bought our pellet stove at Home Depot 5 years ago I also bought four tons of Pennington Pellets. They were so full of "fines" and dust that I couldn't wait to burn all of them. Last year I bought a ton of Energex which burned clean and hot. Really satisfied with them.
    This winter all I could find were Pennington at Home Depot and figured by now they had improved. Wrong! Dirtier burning, more ash and clinkers, stove window turns black after an hour or so. Don't buy Penningtons unless you can't find anything else or have a lot of time on your hands to clean the stove.

  • Comment Link George Monday, 30 January 2012 16:34 posted by George

    I've burned these in a Harman P68 and a Pinnacle Multi-fuel corn/pellet stove, and both stoves loved them. I haven't seen a pellet as long as shown in the pictures above through the tons that we've burned, and the ash seems pretty consistent with everything else that we've burned. We pick them up at Sam's Club for around $4/bag and a ton heat's my house in Maine for about a month depending on how low the temperature gets. These are certainly higher quality than 5 other brands I've bought...I have no problem with them whatsoever.

  • Comment Link don gould Thursday, 19 January 2012 03:27 posted by don gould

    Bought 4 tons from Wallmart in October 2011. Have two Harmon Invincibles--one about 15 years old and the other about 12. Clean them every two weeks myself and have them professionally cleaned yearly.Immediately had problems with the older Harmon going out repeatedly. Pellets are too long (some 2 1/2 inches; 1 ince average)and jam the feed. Only works if I break up the pellets by hand-what a pain! The newer stove seemed to accept them until tonight(1/18/12) and the feed motor stopped running. May not be related, but never again!

  • Comment Link tallbright Sunday, 15 January 2012 14:45 posted by tallbright

    I have been buying these from Walmart for two years. Only when the price is $4.50 or less. Usualy, we'll burn 4 ton. Nobody should have to pay $5.00 a bag, even for the best pellets.
    Nice long pellets, low ash, and they burn real hot. We are burning in two Harmon Accentra's.

    My experience with pellet stoves began just this winter. I have a Quadra Fire that's about 20 years old, but works just fine. I have tried the Heat'rs pellets that I got at Home Depot and then tried the Pennington Pellets that I got at Walmart and found the Pennington to be much superior to the Heat'rs. The Heat'rs pellets are smaller, the seem to break easily, there is more dust, they don't even smell particularly good. The Penningtons actually smell like wood; they seem to be harder and less crumbly and they burn substantially hotter. I have a thermometer installed on the hot air outlet of my stove and I can easily see the difference between those two brands of pellets. I just wish the local Walmart would sell the pellets by the pallet like Home Depot does.

  • Comment Link Mark Monday, 05 December 2011 22:34 posted by Mark

    I bought these pellets at home depot. 4 tons. $200 a ton. I have two stoves that are different makes. Fire goes out when stoves are on low. Mine also are making the window extremely black. More than usual. adjusted the damper, didn't help. They burn fine as long as stoves are medium to high. Ash seems to be average for any type bought at Home Depot or lowes.

  • Comment Link Bud Thursday, 24 November 2011 01:59 posted by Bud

    Just tried the Pennington Wood pellets. $5.00 a bag at walmart. Very pleased with the clean burn, and high output of heat. The pellets where not long at all so the auger had not problem. I have a Harman P43 and it loved them.

  • Comment Link John Dunbar Wednesday, 16 November 2011 18:17 posted by John Dunbar

    Thankfully I just finished the last bags after buying 2 pallets of this stuff. Three times the ash, stove runs constantly due to very little heat output. Can't see through the glass after two days of stove use. I complained to Walmart mgr. and Nature's Heat rep who said take them back to Walmart. I had bought them during the previous fall and didn't keep the receipt since at that time I though all pellets were the same. I previously had Alberta Choice, Lignetics, and another brand and saying they out-performed Nature's Heat is an understatement. An expensive lesson learned. Never again.

    Bought 16 bags of these the other day. Put one bag in the stove and couldnt beleive the amount of dust and saw dust like material. With my stove set on low these pellets wouldnt stay burning. Shut stove down and took them back out of hopper and ruturned the others to the store, Now I see why they are the cheepest pellet around. Dont waste your time or money on these pellets.

  • Comment Link Rudolf Hoogenboom Thursday, 23 December 2010 15:28 posted by Rudolf Hoogenboom

    My wife made me return them to the store, cause she was complaining that there was too much dust. I have to agree that the ash content was higher. They did seem to burn ok to me, though. I think the size of the pellets was good.
