Ash content / Calorific value
The most important indicators of pellets are net calorific value ash content and durability. Heatit Premium pellets have very good results on all of them.
As our pellets are made from softwood timber, the ash content of burned pellets is only around 0,3% (ENplus requirement for ash content says it has to be less than 0,5%). This means less waste and that heating equipment is not required to be cleaned so often.
Our Premium pellets are also very high on net calorific value. That means that as they are very dry and therefore they give more energy which means more heat from the same amount compared to wetter pellets.
When ENplus requirements for net calorific value is ≥ 4.6 kWh/kg, then our Premium pellets net calorific value is even better - about 5.3 kWh/kg.
