This has everything to do with the “burn rate” of your stove or insert. One pound of wood pellets will produce approximately 8000 BTU’s of heat. So, if you are burning pellets on the “low” setting, say 1 ½ lbs./hour (or 12,000 BTU), a bag will last about 26 hours. If you need a lot of heat, burning five pounds per hour (or 40,000 BTU), one bag will last about 8 hours. Manufacturers will publish the “burn rate vs. BTU output” data in their product literature and the owner’s manual. Pellet equipment has various settings, depending on the amount of heat that’s needed. If your stove operates on a thermostat, the burn rate will vary depending on the temperature setting on the thermostat.
