Corn Stove

 A corn stove is a form of pellet stoves. Pellet stoves do not necessarily need to burn corn. Other usable pellets include cherry pits and wood pellets. These stoves first became popular during the oil shortage in the 1970s. Now as the controversy over fossil-fuels and renewable energy rages, these stoves can experience a resurgence in popularity. These stoves use corn kernels as a source of renewable energy. They tend to cost more than wood or coal burning stove, but over the past three decades, the price has fallen and the design has become more attractive. Corn-burning stoves are also available in commercial models for businesses that strive to be environmentally friendly.

Despite the initial cost, these stoves can be very cost-effective methods to warm your home. Corn is always plentiful, and tends to be five to ten cents per pound. Depending on the weather and climate, you can heat your home for an entire winter season for under one thousand dollars. They can easily heat the average sized home. The by-product is a solid block of ash. Some styles come with an agitator to break up the bricks of ash. Ash needs to be removed every one to three days.
