If you buy bagged wood pellets from us…how do you store them? Throw the bags in the garage, leave them out in the garden, or under a protective shelter that protects them from rain? It is essential that you store your wood pellets in a dry condition to get the best results. Ideally keep your bags indoors in the garage or shed.
HETAS Approved and Balcas Energy approved Product Smart Bunker prevents condensation keeping your wood pellets dry making it the perfect storage solution for wood pellets. The Smart Bunker also protects your Burner/ Boiler as condensation can cause moisture ingress into wood pellets which can badly damage your burner/ boiler.
Storing them in the house/garage can be troublesome. They take up space that you may need; or cause worry in the event of a fire. Here at Balcas Energy we want to ensure you get the best results from burning our wood pellets, in safety. We have considered the issue of storing wood pellets in domestic situations and looked at various solutions. We have also created a special page based on wood pellets storage and you can read it here.
