Discussions Mechanical systems Heating and cooling Wood stove and biomass heat Are there pellet stoves that don't use electricity? C Christina Dick 1 year ago Updated: Oct. 19, 2021 Save Like Comment(1) Share Facebook Twitter Email Print I have a space that is 500 sq feet. I need a pellet heater no electric and I'm broke.
See this page here to find pellet stoves that don’t require electricity to run hoppers to load the pellets, they are great for an off-grid heating solution. However, 500 square feet is not a large space, so I’m not sure you’ll find any that don’t use electricity but also that are small enough to run efficiently in such a small space. Have you thought of a woodstove? They come in a more varied range of sizes than pellet stoves, also they are cheaper. You say you’re broke, keep in mind that a cheap pellet stove is still 3 times the price of a cheap wood stove. If that makes sense then check out this page on what to look for when choosing a wood stove.
