Indoor Cost Guides      Air-Conditioning & Heating (HVAC)      Small Pellet Stove Heating Costs

The pellet stove is a modern version of traditional stove heating. The pellet fuel is “bio-fuel” typically made of wood or corn material. The combustion is very efficient and automatic pellet feeding is controlled by thermostat.

You will find that the cost to install average pellet stove heating depends upon the unit size and heating capacity, decorative finish-grade, accessories, installation preparation and special requirements, and the labor rate.

In the following table the Labor Cost figure is what the able DIY person should expect to save by performing the installation.
