Pellet fireplaces are currently the most cost-effective heating solution in South Africa. The cost of electricity and gas are rapidly increasing, while their supply can be erratic at peak times.
The running cost of a pellet fireplace is currently half the running cost of equivalent electrical and gas appliances in the market, and will over time become even more cost effective.
Pellet fireplaces provide automated convenience to the user. Pellets come in 15kg bags, which make it easy to handle and store. The fireplace is fully automated with a programmable weekly time schedule to switch it on and off at times suited to the user. The top range pellet units have remote controls with a GPRS function making it possible to switch the units on or off.
The units must be cleaned once a day. Luckily the ash contents amounts to only about 1% of the consumed amount of pellets, making the process a breeze compared to the traditional wood fired appliances. The ash content is also mineral rich and could be used as pot ash in the garden.
Pellet fireplaces are design conscious, with various styles, shapes, colours and sizes to choose from. Choices can be made between free standing and build-in units, with or without a ducted heating functionality (Multi-fire system) to spread heat more rapidly to different rooms in the residence or office. A pellet fire place with a multi-fire system is like having your own central heating system in your home or office. Some pellet units can be bought with handmade Majolica® ceramic surrounds, making each unit exceptionally unique.
Pellet fireplaces are the only real green alternative heating solution in South Africa. When biomass from wood waste or sustainably managed forests, are combusted to create energy the process actually generates no increased greenhouse gas emissions, a circumstance described as carbon neutrality.
