During the summer months it is a good time to think about running your fuel store down and cleaning it out as early as possible before the winter months arrive. It is advised that you clean your pellet store annually to ensure you get the most from your pellet boiler. It is important that your storage and handling system is correctly designed, constructed and maintained. This ensures that pellets arrive in your boiler in the best state to achieve optimum combustion to provide you with economical, trouble free heating and hot water.
With every delivery and subsequent transfer of pellets to the boiler there is an element of dust created by pellet attrition which will accumulate over time. This may not be visible from the inspection hatch of the fuel store as dust can collect on the wall of the fuel store and in the augers, pellets can stick to the dust and can eventually lead to the auger blocking in due time causing a considerable amount of damage.
