Filling our Wood Pellet Silo

We just received our first pellet delivery of the season. Below, is a quick video showing how easy and simple it is. Our silo can hold approximately 15 tons. It takes about 35 minutes to deliver 10 tons of fuel. Our entire 10,000 sq. ft building is heated with a Froling P4 48/60 Fully Automatic Pellet Boiler with 500 gallons of Thermal Storage.

Featured Installation: Froling P4 Fully Automatic Wood Pellet Boiler-Bethel, VT

Polly and John are happy! They just got their new Froling P4 32/38 started before winter officially kicked in. Their apartment received damage from Tropical Storm Irene and they lost everything in their basement including their source of heat. They had already planned on installing a Froling P4 pellet boiler at a later date, but because of the storm it made it the right time to replace their old inefficient oil boiler. The installation is almost complete except for their permanent fuel store room and insulating the thermal storage tank. The Froling P4 will be their only boiler, so it is also controlling and heating the domestic hot water tank. They have also integrated a new energy efficient Grundfos Alpha pump into their heating system.

Right out side their door, there is a lot of activity going on. The town of Bethel, VT received a lot of damage from the storm. The main bridge in town is being replaced and tons of gravel and stone is being brought in to repair damaged VT Route 107. Please check out the photos and quick video below.
