To keep wood pellet stoves operating efficiently and safely, you’ll need to maintain it on a regular basis. Every year, preferably before each heating season, have a chimney sweep certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America inspect your wood pellet stoves. In addition to cleaning the chimney, a certified chimney sweep should have the knowledge to help make sure your appliance, hearth, connecting pipe, air inlets, chimney, and all other components are functioning efficiently and safely. » more info ENERGY.GOV
A wood-burning stove is a heating appliance capable of burning wood fuel and wood-derived biomass fuel, such as wood pellets. Generally wood pellet stoves consists of a solid metal (usually cast iron or steel) closed fire chamber, a fire brick base and an adjustable air control. The appliance will be connected by ventilating stove pipes to a suitable chimney or flue, which will fill with hot combustion gases once the fuel is ignited. The chimney or flue gases must be hotter than the outside temperature to ensure combustion gases are drawn out of the fire chamber and up the chimney. Many wood-burning stoves are engineered such that they can be converted to multi-fuel stoves with the addition of a grate. » more info

Fire hazard is one of them.The resurgence of the wood burner as a supplementary source of heat has led to an alarming—and growing—number of fires traceable to careless installation or misuse. » Insurance Information Institute
Before the heating season each year have your chimney and stove pipe carefully inspected and cleaned. Make any needed repairs. More frequent checks are advisable if you are building up combustible creosote and soot. Think twice before trying to clean your own chimney! You may damage your chimney lining or stove pipe creating a potential fire hazard that may cost you thousands of dollars or even result in the destruction of your home! Always hire a professional stove cleaning service.

A pellet stove is a stove that burns compressed wood or biomass pellets to create a source of heat for residential and sometimes industrial spaces. By steadily feeding fuel from a storage container (hopper) into a burn pot area, they create a constant flame that requires little to no physical adjustments. Today’s central heating systems operated with wood pellets as a renewable energy source can reach an efficiency factor of more than 90%. » more info
Pellet Stove Maintenance
Every pellet stove requires routine maintenance including an annual full cleaning . A properly cleaned and maintained pellet stove should not create creosote, the sticky, flammable substance that causes chimney fires. Pellets burn very cleanly and create only a layer of fine fly ash as a byproduct of combustion. The grade of pellet fuel affects the performance and ash output. Premium grade pellets produce less than one percent ash content, while standard or low grade pellets produce up to six percent ash. Pellet stove users should be aware of the extra maintenance required with a lower grade pellet, and that inconsistent wood quality can cause serious effects to the electronic machinery over a short period of time. Failure to perform this routine maintenance of ash removal will affect your pellet stove’s efficiency to transfer heat to your home. Without proper maintenance your stove may cease to drop pellets and/or burn properly. Burning a dirty stove for extended periods of time will become a safety concern.
Harman has an excellent Use & Care video series about their line of pellet stoves including this one on pellet stove maintenance. Please consult your pellet stove manufacturer manual for specific maintenance procedures.

If your stove is not working properly and appears to be less efficient the good news is that a full service cleaning and inspection will most likely resolve those performance issues. But there’s always the possibility that your stove may need a new part based on our service testing and diagnosis.
We do stock common parts for wood pellet stoves but also order specific parts as needed. That includes heat sensors, glass, burn pots, fire brick and control boards. We charge a service call / inspection fee for diagnosing repairs. The return visit for the repair itself will have an hourly rate fee applied in addition to materials.
We will install new and used wood pellet stoves with new pipe if the install is within my scope.
To my knowledge I’m the only one in town that mechanically / rotary sweeps the pellet flue if needed instead of using a hand held brush. And, I use CO2 / Compressed air to clean out inaccessible parts of the stove that can not be reached with a brush or a vacuum.
