Frequently Asked Questions
What are wood pellets?
The fancy definition is “densified biomass fuel”. Biomass means something made from living things–in this case, wood fiber. Heat and pressure are applied to the wood fibers to create the pellets. This makes them quite dense for their size. Pellets are about 90 % efficient as a combustible heat source in pellet stoves.
How are Timberland Wood Heating Pellets made?
We capture every bit of byproduct possible at our millwork manufacturing facilities. At any location where wood is being processed we have a fiber evacuation system, or in other words a vacuum that takes the wood fiber to our screens. We use a three screen shaker to take out any fiber that will not create the best pellet possible. From there, the wood fiber moves into the pelletizer where heat and pressure are applied to create the pellets you see in our bag. Then, we run the pellets through a sifter to remove any pieces that are too small for pellet stoves. Because of our state of the art process, we can guarantee that the wood used in Timberland Wood Heating Pellets have zero contaminants or additives. We mean it when we say 100% wood.
What is a premium pellet and why should I use them?
Pellets that are graded as premium mean that they have gone through testing to insure they meet certain creteria. Premium grade wood pellets produce more heat per ton, so you end up having to use less pellets. Using less also means less hauling, loading, storing, and clean up. When you burn less, there is less stress on your heating system which lowers your ongoing maintenance costs. And finally, burning less means fewer emissions into our atmosphere. Timberland Wood Heating Pellets meet and exceed all requirements to be considered premium.
Do pellets expire?
Nope! You can save pellets for as long as you need as long as they are kept dry and at a cool temperature.
How do I store my pellets?
The most important thing is to keep your pellets dry. We recommend storing them inside or very well coverd.
How many bags of pellets do I need for my stove?
Depends on how cold your area gets. On a low setting a bag of pellets might last you more than 16 hours. Your Timberland pellet dealer will be able to help you define your needs.
Why are they shiny?
Pellets don’t need any glue or other additives to hold them together because a natural sealer comes from the wood itself: Lignin. Basically it’s the sap inside the wood grain and when the saw dust is heated the lignin seeps out and cools on the outside of the pellet under the high pressure.
Is it cheaper to heat my home with wood pellets?
Absolutly, a study done by the Pellet Fuels Institute showed that on an annual basis, pellets are 44% less than oil, 47% less than electric and 53% less than propane.
Is burning pellets better for the environment?
Yes, the wood used to create wood pellets is always being replenished and reforested and absorb the same amount of carbon during the growing process as they give off when heating your home. These efforts ensure a virtually invisible carbon footprint and a warm home for you and your family.In fact, on average one home heated using wood pellets can replace more than 9 tons of carbon annually. That is three times the amount of a hybrid car.
I think I’m sold, how do I get started?
First, you’ll need a pellet stove. Since installation cost is so low, the switch to pellet stoves is easy. Some pellet stoves can be within three inches of your wall and most need only a 3-inch flue for ventilation rather than an entire chimney. They can also be inserted into an existing fire place.
Timberland heating pellets is a Woodgrain company and headquartered out of Fruitland, Idaho. Woodgrain is a wood manufacturing company that makes wood mouldings, doors, and windows. All of the residuals (sawdust) that are produced while making these products offer the materials that go into Timberland Pellets.
Timberland Heating Pellets is a Woodgrain Millwork brand and it is because of this that we can offer a premium, environmentally friendly, and cost effective solution for your heating needs! This is because our pellets are made from the byproduct (wood shavings and fiber) of our wood windows, doors, and trim processes. Each of these products require the highest quality of kiln dried wood available. Rather than disposing of the wood fiber byproduct we capture it and use it to make our pellets, making a reclaimed fuel source.
