Power inverter for Pellet Stove Backup
Q: There are so many types of power inverters on the market. Which power inverter setup is right for backing up my pellet stove.
A: Pellet stoves are just as varied as power inverters in style, requirements, and design. However there is one group of inverters that always (99.5% of the time work to back up Pellet Stoves) True sine wave power inverters in the 1000 + watt range will almost always run your pellet stove as an emergency backup. Most pellet stoves pull between 400-800 watts of power for the fan. New controller and motor designs require the use of cleaner power, so true sine wave is often required.
Pellet stoves are heaters that use wood pellets as fuel. They also have controllers and fans that run off 120 volt ac power. Some people choose to create a backup system for their pellet stoves during power outages. Companies like United States Stove Co. make a wide selection of the heaters for a variety of install applications. Their units are broken down by square footage of heating and hopper size for pellets. A 40-pound pellet hopper can last over 40 hours for heating an 1800 square foot home. This can be very useful during cold times of the year.
Here are a few power inverters that would work.
