At Pinnacle we are proud to share our carbon-neutral product with residential customers who have chosen to heat their homes with wood-pellet stoves and furnaces. We offer two packaged products for home use: standard clean burning SPF pellets made from a blend of spruce, pine and fir, or premium-grade Douglas fir — specially made for its higher heat value and lower ash content. Residential fuel pellets are available in 40-pound (18.15-kg) bags on pallets of 2,000, 2,200 or 2,400 pounds, for optimum shipping.
Depending on the furnace model, Pinnacle pellets pump out between 6,000 to several million BTU per hour. From a cozy fire in the family room to a main heat source for commercial, industrial and greenhouse applications, pellets can do the job.
Because pellet stoves burn so efficiently, some do not even require conventional chimneys, just small diameter, easily installed, inexpensive venting. Pellet burning appliances need to be refuelled less often than most other wood-burning appliances, usually from once a day to twice a week.
To refuel, simply pour the pellets into a hopper, which holds between 35 and 130 pounds of pellets. These are transferred by mini-auger to the fire chamber to be burned as needed.
Burning wood pellets with a pellet stove or insert is convenient, tidy and safe. It’s easy to maintain a steady and comfortable room temperature. The fuel is compressed and bagged for clean, easy storage and handling. Pellet stoves produce virtually no smoke and less odour than other wood-burning appliances. They also cost less than oil, propane or natural gas.
Depending on the chimney installation required, the cost of a pellet system is often less than that of other types of stoves. With Pinnacle wood pellets, good-quality pellet stoves provide days of clean heat. They use saw milling and harvesting residuals that were previously burned or left to rot. With so many features and positive environmental benefits, Pinnacle wood pellets just make sense.
Wood pellets are usually available in 40-pound bags and cost a lot less than you think. Commercial quantities are available by tanker truck or one-tonne super bags.
Pinnacle’s pet comfort is well known for its moisture absorbency and odour control. The product is suitable for large or small animals. Pet comfort is ideal for horse bedding, as a 40lb bag will absorb 160 pounds of moisture — four times its weight. Four bags are equivalent to a pick-up truck load of shavings. The relatively low absorbency of shavings and straw allows wetness to spread throughout the stall, which means more cleaning more often and over a bigger area.
Pinnacle's Pet Comfort keeps the clean up limited to a small spot, so that only the soiled or wet area is affected and removed. Along with its superior moisture and odour absorbing qualities, Pet Comfort lasts longer than conventional animal bedding products, which cuts costs. Stall and trailer cleaning time is reduced because Pet Comfort is so easy to transport, handle and dispose of.
Pet Comfort is an ideal bedding product for your smaller pet too. The pine pellets give off a fresh pine scent while Pinnacle's Pet Comfort makes a safe and clean environment for your pet. Pet Comfort also doubles as cat litter. Follow the instructions to see how Pet Comfort can be used for up to a month before the box needs changing.
