What are the Advantages of Pellet Boiler?

The number of automatic pellet boilers across Europe has exceeded 1,000,000 and this number is increasing rapidly.

The pellet fuel boiler provides a modern warming that uses a highly efficient, renewable energy source.

So what are the advantages of pellet boiler? Why is pellet fuel preferred and is it really more advantageous than other fossil fuels?

Pellet Boiler Advantages

  1. The comfort offered by the automatic and fuel tank pellet boilers is exactly the same as the boiler and other solid-liquid fuel boilers.
  2. Pellet boiler is more economical than other fuels.
  3. With pellet boilers, all rooms of your house are warmed up and you can also benefit from the “free” hot water advantage.
  4. For free hot water, you should use a floor boiler or heat exchanger. As long as the pellet boiler works, free hot water will also flow through your taps.
  5. The pellet boiler has the same system as the solid fuel boiler. However, the use of pellet fuel instead of coal provides an economic and environmental solution.
  6. European countries have become the starting point of modern warming trends and the increase in the use of automatic pellet boiler in Europe indicates the future warming technology.
  7. You can produce your own fuel by taking a pellet machine! Pellet prices become more appropriate with your own production.
  8. When the pellet fuel is supplied cheaply, it can save up to 50% compared to other fuels.
  9. Pellet fuels burn more efficiently than other wood fuels, the pellet burns faster and gives more energy than wood fires.
  10. Pellet fuels are carbon neutral, meaning they do not release harmful carbon gas.
  11. When the pellet of wood is biomass burned, there are various minerals in the ash content, and so the pellet fuel ashes can be discharged into lawns, gardens or forested areas.
  12. Ashes from the pellet boiler and cleaning material can also be made. In ancient times, our ancestors used soap and similar cleaning materials as natural cleaning products. These types of products are still marketed as more natural products today.
  13. The pellet boiler, which is a type of heating boiler, has the same capabilities as other automatic heaters, but it will be preferred more in the following years due to its more environmentally friendly and economic structures.
  14. While none of the other fossil, liquid, gas and even electricity and heating methods can be used to re-enter the natural cycle, wood pellet ash is the mineral reservoirs that you can leave to nature with peace of mind. So you can benefit from the ash as a natural fertilizer. In addition, the production of ash cleaning material is another example of recycling.

Panel Radiator Size Calculation

Panel Radiator size calculation; anyone who thinks to install a boiler or boiler in the house should have this knowledge.

A small calculation will allow you to make sure that the installation and the boiler you have chosen is correct.

Basic information for panel radiator size calculation

Practical panel radiator size calculation:

22 type panel radiator with 1 meter width and 60 cm height, 9-12 m² area is heating. This figure can be taken as a 1 meter panel for the average 10m² area when making practical calculations.

How many calories does a panel radiator give? A 22 cm honeycomb with 1 meter length and 60 cm height gives 1800Kcal / hour heat. The heat produced by the heater may vary depending on the model.

Panel radiator calculation with cubic meter:

An average energy consumption of 45 Kcal / hour per 1 m³ is provided.

How to Reduce Heating Costs?

What measures should be taken to reduce heating costs? Generally, many buildings had to increase their energy consumption for heating, as they did not yet pass through the thermal insulation system.

How Much Heat Insulation Can Save?

In order to keep the indoor temperature inside, the building must be well insulated. 7% of the roofs, 40% of the outer walls, 6% of the floor and 17% of the doors have heat losses. It is possible to save up to 50% energy by insulating the building.

How to take measures to save heat?


In order to be able to use energy efficiently, take a look at the measures to be taken at a low cost or free of charge;

• Place an aluminum foil covered insulation board between the wall and the panel radiator. You can prepare these panels at home by covering the top of the styrofoam plate with aluminum foil.
• Thermostatic radiator valves, which adjust the radiator temperature, save energy by 15-20% per year.
• Do not cover the front of the radiators with long curtains. Do not place furniture. Do not prevent hot air movement.
• In winter, keep the curtains closed that are facing the north.
• Insulate your water heater and hot water pipes to prevent heat losses.
• Solid-fuel heating systems with automatic loading consume 30-40% less fuel than manual heating systems.
• If your heater is located in an unheated space, avoid heat losses by insulating the pipe and tank.
• Lower the temperature with thermostatic valves instead of opening the windows when the temperature is too high in the houses heated by the central system.
• You can reduce the energy consumption by 6% by reducing the ambient temperature by 1 degree. Do not increase the ambient temperature excessively in winter. The living rooms are between 19 and 21 oC and the bedrooms are suitable for heating between 16-18 oC.
• Keep the entrance doors closed. Double door or automatic closing helps to maintain heat.
• Turn off your heater on sunny winter days and turn on your curtains. The sun will warm your house for free.
• Avoid leaks by checking door and window gaps. Use window insulation tapes for this.
• Use insulated glass. They are more expensive than standard glass but save on comfort and energy. If 12 mm double glazing is used, the heat lost from the windows is reduced by 50%. Using low-e lenses will further reduce heat losses.
• Insulate your building.
• Get help from an energy manager.
• Make sure there is an energy efficient home when buying a home. At the beginning you pay more money. But you will save both money and energy for a life time.
