What is a hydro pellet stove?

A hydro stove is a heating system that uses pellets, small cylinders of compressed wood, as fuel to produce heat not only for the room in which it is installed but also for the water in the house’s heating circuits, such as radiators or the radiant floor. This differentiates it from traditional pellet stoves, which only heat the surrounding air.

The heart of a stove is its burner, where the pellets are incinerated, producing heat. Some heat is transferred to the air to heat the room, while most are transferred to water circulating in a closed circuit. The heated water is then pumped through the home heating system, spreading the heat throughout the house.

Advantages of the pellet stove

  • Energy efficiency
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Living comfort

One of the main advantages of the hydro pellet stove is its high energy efficiency. Indeed, pellets are an economical and sustainable fuel with a high calorific value. The hydro stove’s ability to distribute heat via water allows optimal energy use, reducing waste and lowering heating costs. This type of stove has a lower environmental impact than traditional heating systems because pellets are produced from wood processing waste, so it is a renewable resource. In addition, its combustion is cleaner than that of fossil fuels, with lower emissions of CO2 and pollutants. The pellet stove offers superior living comfort as the heat distributed through the water in the radiators or radiant floor is more even and constant than direct air heating. This eliminates the problems of dry air and cold drafts, typical of other heating systems, creating a more comfortable and healthy environment.

How to connect a pellet-burning stove to radiators

Connecting a pellet-burning stove to radiators is an operation that requires attention both in the choice of location and in the connection method, to ensure efficient and effective heating of the home. Ideally, the stove should be placed in a central point of the house or close to the area you wish to heat the most, to facilitate the even distribution of heat through the radiators.

For the connection, it is necessary to integrate the hydro pellet stove with the existing heating system through a hydraulic circuit that allows hot water to flow from the stove to the radiators. This process requires the installation of suitable piping, a circulation pump to push water through the system, and an expansion tank to handle pressure variations. It is essential to include safety valves and an exhaust system for air in the circuit, thus ensuring the proper functioning and safety of the system.
