Are you shopping for a pellet stove, but can’t make a final decision? With a multitude of choices on the market and many benefits to becoming an owner, the choice calls for manufacturer and dealer research, a clear-cut budget and a deep dive into the cleaning and maintenance that a model requires. However, one of the most essential aspects of a pellet stove purchase is the warranty. Many stoves come with a standard manufacturer warranty as well as one provided by the authorized dealer.
That’s why we’ve dedicated this blog post to educating future stove owners on the necessary terms and conditions that make up a reliable pellet stove warranty, what repairs and replacements are covered and what you can expect from Forge & Flame's warranties in particular.
What is a Pellet Stove Warranty?
A pellet stove warranty is a promise that the product manufacturer or authorized dealer will stand behind the product. Warranties often include a promise to cover the costs of repairs or the replacement of a damaged or broken stove and its specific parts within a certain time period.
What is the Lifespan of a Pellet Stove?
Your pellet stove's life expectancy depends on how often you use it, clean it and perform maintenance. Generally, pellet stoves can last ten years, but with good care and upkeep, that number can increase to 15 or even 20 years. Be sure your stove receives regular care throughout the burn season. Scheduling a yearly professional inspection by a certified stove dealer is also highly recommended to ensure the proper function and longevity of your pellet stove.
What to Look for in a Pellet Stove Warranty
A standard pellet stove warranty covers repairs and replacement parts by the manufacturer within a certain time period. Ensure that essential parts to the pellet stove, such as the ignitor, auger and firepot are covered in the warranty. Typically, these parts are covered between two to four years as industry standard. Other components such as glass or handles may also be covered by the warranty for a shorter amount of time, typically one to two years.
Warranties differ between manufacturers, making it all the more important to read the manual and warranty before purchasing. For any pellet stove you are interested in, our experts recommend visiting the manufacturer’s website which will provide the owner’s manual and warranty information essential to your purchase.
