The moisture content of wood pellets used for stoves should ideally be between 8% and 10%. Wood pellets with higher moisture content may not burn efficiently, leading to lower heat output, more ash production, and potentially higher emissions. On the other hand, wood pellets with very low moisture content can be brittle and may break apart during handling and transportation.

It’s important to note that the moisture content of wood pellets can vary depending on the production process, storage conditions, and other factors. Therefore, it’s recommended to purchase wood pellets from a reputable supplier that adheres to quality standards and provides moisture content information on their product packaging. Additionally, storing wood pellets in a dry and ventilated area can help maintain their moisture content and quality.
