Pellet stoves offer several advantages over traditional woodstoves. The first advantage is a much longer burn time. Most pellet stoves have a hopper with an auger drive that slowly feeds pellets to the fire box. One can simply fill the hopper and walk away, the pellet stove will self feed up to 24 hours in some models.
A second advantage is that pellet stoves operate with much cooler surface temperature then woodstoves. This reduces the threat of burns and increases the suitable installation areas in the home.
Another advantage is the pellets themselves are easier to handle and produce far less dirt in the home then traditional logs.
Some disadvantages of pellet stoves are their dependence on an electrical source to operate automaticaly, a constant low level noise from their moving parts, and greater maintanance costs due to their greater complexity.

The Pellet Stove Almanack: Home Heating Joins the 21st Century
Pellet stoves have an aura of mystery surrounding them. There's quite a bit of buzz about them, but accurate information is hard to obtain, and apparently conflicting claims abound. I set out a few years back, not to write a book, but to buy a pellet stove for my home. As I probed deeper, my fascination with this astonishing technology grew until I concluded that pellet stoves are what other heating systems want to be when they grow up. Nearly all conventional heating systems today are centered on post-Civil War technology. The modern pellet stove is truly the only 21st Century heat source in terms of safety, cost savings, and unparalleled comfort. Pick up this book and find out whether a pellet stove could be right for you.
This is the only book around that gives in-depth consideration to all of the factors that will influence your satisfaction with a pellet stove. The reasons behind the extraordinary economy and home comfort obtainable only with a pellet stove are discussed, and there is a special section devoted to wood stove owners who are considering a switch. In many cases, even folks using "free" firewood will save money with a pellet stove. Almost as important, I realize that for some people, a pellet stove is NOT the right solution, and point out a number of "wish I'd known that beforehand" things, so that you can make an informed decision whether a new stove would fit into your lifestyle. - Ken
"Growing up in the epicenter of pellet stove technology, I know that homeowners are often confused about the benefits and cost savings associated with pellet stoves. Until now, there were few resources to help homeowners choose a stove. MacDonald lends a level of clarity to this process unlike any other. Not only is The Pellet Stove Almanack enjoyable to read, homeowners looking to add a pellet stove to their home will gain a roadmap to their perfect stove purchase." - Karen Harman-Smeltz, Harman Stoves
