Pellets : a choice to live better
The advantage of biomass heating comes from the fact that pellet and wood fuels are considerably more economical than oil and methane gas in terms of the same heat produced.
Pellet stoves represent one of the most innovative and advantageous systems for domestic heating. On the one hand they are practical and easy to use: they have completely automatic and electronically managed function, and can also be remote-controlled. Above all, using these systems really keeps heating costs down compared with traditional fossil fuels, which translates into saving.
Gruppo Ravelli has always been driven by its careful consideration in protecting the environment and the balance of the ecosystem by manufacturing products that will best reconcile the demands of economic development with environmental protection. The company’s action fits into a wider trend towards global and individual rediscovery of ecological applications, in order to guarantee sustainable development dedicated to preserving the very world in which we live today.
Pellets: a revolution in home heating
The diagram illustrates how the pellets are transformed during combustion. Thanks to the combined action of the sun’s energy, carbon dioxide, water and the dissolved mineral salts, the pellets are constantly renewed.
The combustion releases the same amount of CO2 as the quantity absorbed and developed by a tree during the growth and the natural decomposition in a forest. The combustion of pellets, therefore, does not increase the CO2 quantity of the atmosphere.
The other important aspect of the pellet is the content of ash: while firewood bark contains various impurities, a good quality pellet has an ash content less than 1% of the total weight.
