Hi,
I'm new to this forum. Looking for some advice on softwood wood pellets. Have historically burned hardwood pellets. Have a Harmon
Accentra stove. I'm located in south eastern Ontario
The Softwood wood pellets available in my area include:
Lacwood (Home Hardware)
Granulco (Rona or local farm store)
Surefire (Canadian Tire)
Lacrete (Home Depot)
Suggestions/anyone have experience with these pellets?
Thanks,
Rob

Rob,

I think you'll be happy with any 100% softwood pellet in comparison to hardwood pellets. The heat output will be higher and ash produced a good bit less. I'm burning Energex Golden pellets this season. Sadly I have no experience with your available selection.

The only brand that I recognize is La Crete - a decent pellet.
I have been burning softwood for years - higher BTU's, a LOT less ash & clinkers.
My favorites SOFTWOODS are: Matra, Easy Blaze, Logik-e. All of these have close to 9,000 BTU's, & .2% ash.
I use to buy Douglas Fir - forget it! Too expensive. They're coming from the West Coast, so you're paying for the shipping. You can get the same results with my favorite softwood pellets, and almost $100/ton less!
By the way, I, too, am burning these pellets in a Harman Accentra stove. Mine is the insert.

Burning my last bag of LaCrete in an Accentra 52i. Can’t get much better that that. Nice heat, low ash.
