you’ll understand how important it is to have the right pellets when and where you need them. Here’s how to make sure that you’re using the right supplier.
There is a reason that some pellet suppliers are so cheap, and that is because they are using a lesser quality pellet. Whilst this may not be too much of a problem if you are using wood pellets for animal bedding, if you’re using them for heating, then a lesser pellet can cause problems with some boilers and stoves.
Economy and premium
Suppliers usually offer a premium and economy pellet. If you’re using them for bedding then economy is usually fine. If you’re burning your wood pellets for heat, then you’ll usually get better performance form the premium pellets as they provide more heat per pellet.
You’ll need to make sure that you can order when it’s convenient for you. If you’re out riding all day, or fill your boiler up in the evening, you can’t expect to be able to order by phone. You’ll want to be able to order your pellets online. You’ll also want to make sure that you can speak to someone during office hours if you need to find out about the pellets.
Availability and Delivery
You’ll need to make sure that your wood pellet supplier can get you your pellets when you need them, and can deliver them quickly too. Whilst some suppliers may be cheaper, they might not be able to get your pellets out to you for several days.
Bagged or bulk
You’ll have to decide whether you want you pellets in 10 or 15kg bags, so that they can be moved around easily, or whether a 1 tonne bag would be better for you. A bulk bag might be preferable if you’re looking to save even more money, or want less packaging and waste.
