We have been burning these pellets for a long time. They are good quality and put off a ton of heat. My only complaint is that when we first started purchasing them our hopper took 1 bag and 2/3rds. Now it takes two bags to fill. I wonder if they are not filling the bags enough.Report
Grabbed a few bags to hold me over until I get my softies. Very impressed again with these!! NO dust, NO fines, good heat too.Report
WARNING- JUNK! I didn't want to travel to Lisbon Maine to buy good pellets so I picked these up tonight. 17 Nov. 2017 and they were almost full of sawdust.
What an awful mess be careful they might damage your stove.
Oh yes you can return them but what about the mess in your stove?
Just bought a few bags in the Home Dept in Augusta ,Maine and they are full of sawdust and jammed my stove. What a mess.Report
I purchased 3 pallets at my local Home Depot. The pellets are very light in color and are burning pretty hot for me. My stove actually kicked off once because it got to hot, something it has never done on the burn setting it is on!
Not a lot of dust in the bags and not too bad on ash production either. No klinkers. The burn pot is staying pretty clean of debris for now.
If all of the bags burn like these I will be happy.
Been burning pellets for over 20 years in a Harmon P61. Have burned all kinds of pellets. From crap to real good quality. Even crap that is supposed to be good quality, sadly
I'm picky about what i burn. My regular supplier came up short this year and couldn't deliver on what I wanted so now I'm on to secondary sources. Most box stores in my area carry Green Supreme, which is bottom of the barrel. But I happened to notice the Marlborough MA HD is carrying Fireside Ultras. The sister brand to Energex. I've burned small amounts of Fireside's in the past and they were not horrible. I picked up three bags to test burn last week and they burned well. Average ash in the burn pot. (far less than Admin review in August - was able to go 8 hours before needing to rake) Smoked the glass a bit, but not bad. Burned like a softwood/hardwood blend, which is what they are supposed to be. Clinkers were average. Far better than box most store junk, not as good as my first choice, but very very respectable. I had one other option for pellets that i ended up going with, but I could easily live with these. If you are picky about what you burn these are a solid second string. Maybe even a first choice.
Unfortunately pellet quality within brands changes often. So this review is based on what I tested on Nov 2017.
Running the englander for 1500 sq. ft house and these are the hottest burning pellets I've ever put in. We've had the stove three seasons now. Only on the setting of 1 and this stove is keeping the house really warm. It's been down in the low 20's already and we've been keeping the house in the mid 70's with no problems. I especially like the way the company packages the units: three layers of polyethylene with cardboard on the top of the two inner layers. I haven't seen any quality issues yet.Report
I have a Lopi & a King.
I'm very unhappy with the quality of these pellets. Every bag so far has a significant amount of pellets that are smashed & nothing but dust. It keeps the pellets from feeding properly down the augers.
There's also a lot of ash. I bought 4 ton, & I'm finding this in the first ton. I'm sorry I bought these pellets. There's no cintact phone number on the bag, to even call & let them know. The website on the bag is not good either. I bought these at Home Depot. Very displeased with these pellets.
I have a Castle Pellet Stove, I've been burning for many years, have tried virtually every pellet manufacturer out there. Although they all claim to have low ash, I have never seen a difference in their ash until I have recently discovered Fireside Pellets. there has been a significant difference in low ash with this company than I have ever seen in others. I also have noticed a huge difference in the high heat output of these pellets. I especially like the smaller pellet size, it wont clog the auger. I hope this company can Maintain this quality pellet, It is now my Pellets of choice.Report
I purchased three tons of Fireside pellets from Home Depot in Lebanon, NH this season and have not been overly happy with them. I have a lot more ash than previous years and they don't burn as clean as other brands I've used. I had a few bags of Blazers left from last season that I put in to compare the burn (to make sure it wasn't my stove) and the Blazers burned far better than the Firesides did.
Not impressed with how the Fireside pellets were palatalized this year either, they were not as well protected from the elements as they have been in years past. Many of the bags were wet including bags in the center of the pallet. I'm not sure I'll buy these again.
