Pellet Stove Maintenance

Wood pellet stove maintenance is crucial for the best heating results.  Improper care of the stove can result in safety hazards and poor heating.  A thorough cleaning will resolve these issues.  Owner maintenance should be taken care of daily.  This would include:

  • Inspecting the burn pot and grate.  Remove the ash to prevent carbon monoxide buildup and other blockage problems
  • Empty the ash drawer into a non-combustible container that has a tight cover
  • Make sure the heat exchanger is not blocked in any way
  • Check the ash traps and clean out any buildup
  • Once the glass is completely cool it can be cleaned with glass cleaner

Hire a professional technician to take care of the more advanced maintenance of the wood pellet stove.  These tasks will be performed once or twice a year:

  • Cleaning of motors and fans to remove any buildup
  • Vacuum and check the venting system for any leaks

A certified technician will have the proper tools and knowledge to thoroughly clean and inspect the entire heating system.  The wood pellet stove should be professionally inspected at least once a year.
