Heating Pellet Selection

HeaterBitz LLC features quality wood pellets from Rib Mountain Bio. All are produced right here in Central Wisconsin.

All pellets come in 40 lb. bags/ 50 bags per one ton pallet. We sell by the bag or the ton. TRY a few bags, and see if this isn't a better product.

Rib Mountain Bio

I have been selling these premium pellets since 2012, and folks keep coming back for more. RMB uses the CLEAR bags… you always SEE exactly what you're getting.

RMB BLENDIn Stock

BLEND is a mix of hardwood and softwood sawdust that makes a great burning pellet for most any stove. Awesome quality and value!

RMB SOFTWOODSold Out

RMB Softwood is a premium pellet, giving the most BTUs per ton. Softwood is produced as time and availability of ingredients become available. Call for availability.


Pricing

We keep the website up to date as much as possible. You are encouraged to confirm current pricing when you call for loading appointment.

There are no volume discounts. By the bag or by the ton, pricing is the same.

Ton price divided by 50 = per bag price.

Delivery is never included in the pricing. If you cannot arrange your own transportation, I have limited delivery capability and am willing to discuss for additional fee.

In past years I have offered an Early Bird Sale. With the volatility in supplies and unknown availability of product, this will no longer be the case. I will begin stocking for the new season mid-May. Keep in mind the best availability and price has always been “off season” so, my suggestion is that you buy early and as much as you can store, until you are stocked for winter. (See Storage Tips in the Extras area)

Wood Pellet Issues: Bigger Picture


What's the best way to store wood pellets?

The best place to store pellets is indoors, such as in a garage or basement, or shed with some environmental control. The area should be free from moisture and humidity and should not be susceptible to flooding. It's best to store the bags off the floor on pallets or cardboard slips.

There are some incidences of injuries/deaths associated with stored wood pellets giving off CO (carbon Monoxide) in a process called “off-gassing”. Europe uses far more pellet fuel for heating than the US, and so that is where the reports come from. Also, every incident I have researched so far involves bulk quantities of stored pellets in areas that had little to no ventilation. Bagged product greatly reduces this risk.

As with anything, do your own research, and make the best decision for you and your family.

“Where there is no fuel, a fire goes out...”
~ Proverbs 26:20

Wood Pellets - Hardwood or Softwood?

Wood Pellets

Left to Right: Hardwood Pellets and Softwood Pellets

Many people believe hardwoods are superior, since hardwood logs do burn better than softwood logs. This is not necessarily the case when raw material is processed to form wood pellets. Hardwood logs are much drier than softwood logs and the low moisture content results in a hotter, cleaner burn. But, in the process of manufacturing pellets - whether softwood or hardwood - the moisture content of the wood is reduced to a narrow range of approximately 4%.

Once the moisture has been removed, the two remaining components of the pellet are cellulose (wood fiber) and resin (sap, which is essentially a natural oil). Cellulose has the same heating value, whether originating in softwood or hardwood form. Resin has a higher heating value than cellulose and the resin content of softwoods is higher than that of hardwoods. Therefore, softwood pellets burn hotter than hardwood pellets, and give a bit higher heating value (BTU's) per pound.

Heating values are difficult to differentiate across almost all pellets; as a result, what consumers tend to care most about is ash content. The main factors that impact ash content are the cleanliness of the raw material (tree bark and other impurities) and the quality of the manufacturing process.
