One of our regular readers, Ronan O’Reilly, has kindly written and submitted the following article to advise users on how to avoid an ignition failure in an auger fed wood pellet boiler. Thanks again Ronan.
As noted in a previous article it would seem that wood pellets are the cheapest fuel to heat your home, though the set up costs are high. A modern auger-fed wood pellet boiler with adjacent pellet store will need some yearly maintenance in order to avoid what is often referred to in wood pellet boiler manuals as an “ignition failure”. An ignition failure most often occurs because the weight of the pellets in the store is not sufficient to push enough pellets into the auger.
