Lignetic Wood Pellets Now In Stock
Alfonso Martinez



Short days, and cooler nights, you can really feel the chill of Autumn in the air.  With the official start of Autumn on September 23, it’s time once again to clean up your pellet stoves and get your pellets now before the time passes.   Stop by any of our six Big R Store locations in Montana and Washinton to pick up Lignetics Premium Wood Pellets.

Lignetics is one of the founding pioneers of manufacturing premium wood pellets and Pres-to-Logs fire logs for home heating.  Lignetics recognizes the need for a domestic source of heating fuel and believes their wood pellets and Pres-to-Logs fir log fuel is the best source available today.

Lignetics wood pellets and Pres-to-Logs are 100% renewable and are generated from recycled sawdust at lumber and flooring manufacturing facilities that could otherwise be destined for landfills.  Only all-natural materials are use in the production of Lignetics pellets and fire logs ensuring a clean and safe burning product.

If you are thinking about buying pellets, here are some important factors to keep in mind and some good reasons why you should consider Lignetics:

Ash Content – Not all pellets are created equal.  Pay attention to ash content (the lower the better, less ash means a more efficient burn) and BTU (the higher the better, higher BTU’s mean more heat.  Lignetics wood pellets have an ash content of 1.2 grams, which falls well below the nationwide EPA regulations of less than 7.5 grams per hour.  Out of one 50 lb bag of Lignetics pellets you get approximately ½ cup of ash.  Burning Lignetics pellets you will need to clean your stove once every 12 to 14 days for new stoves, older stoves may require more often depending on ash pan size and burn settings.

BTU – Most pellets fuel provides 7,500-8,000 BTU/lb of heat energy.  Lignetic wood pellets provides 8,590 BTU per pound.  1 ton of Lignetics wood pellets is equivalent to almost 1.5 cords of dried season wood, there are over 17 million BTU’s per ton of Lignetics pellets.

Consistency  Density, moisture content and pellet length call all affect how a pellet burns in your stove.The type of wood a pellet is made from usually doesn’t make much of a difference in how it performs.  So a pellet from a hardwood source and one from a softwood species could have a very similar burn characteristics, as long as they’re made with quality in mind.  Lignetics wood pellets are made only from the finest premium quality western conifer sawdust at the West Coast Plant in Sandpoint, ID.  Raw material are combined into a precise recipe of different species of hard and soft woods.  Lignetics state-of-the art production facilities use the latest technology to ensure a consistent, even-burning wood pellet and fire log.  Also keep in mind where you store your would pellets greatly affects it’s moisture content.  Consider storing your pellets in your garage instead of under a tarp if possible.

 The government is currently offering incentives and tax credits to switch your heating choices to alternative renewable resources.  High efficiency wood pellet appliances qualify.   If you purchase an energy-efficient product or energy system for your home, you may be eligible for a federal tax credit.  Below you will find an overview of the federal tax credits for energy efficiency.
