Our assessment

We don't test pellet burners. Instead, we've analysed their performance based on the specifications distributors provide to us.

Overall score is based on:
Emissions (50%): Based on the exhaust particle emission rate in g/kg of fuel consumed.

Efficiency (50%): Based on the conversion of the fuel's energy into heat delivered to the room.

Price is supplied by the manufacturer and does not include the flue price or installation costs.
