When choosing a storage option, first consider the amount of wood pellets required to heat the home each month. Households with high-volume usage should look for bulk storage options, while households that only use a few bags of pellets each month can save money by purchasing a smaller storage bin.
Working hoppers and flexible fabric bins are suitable for households with low to moderate pellet usage. Stick-framed storage bins typically hold between one and 12 tons of pellets to accommodate a wide range of homes. Steel bins and exterior silos are designed to hold large quantities of pellets and feed directly into the home's heating system for maximum convenience.
