To choose the power of the pellet stove best suited to your needs, I refer you to the article "How to calculate the thermal power". When choosing a pellet stove, remember that 30 percent of the heat diffuses directly into the room where it is placed.

We advise you to choose a quality pellet stove, with a heat output higher than 20 percent.
