    I know some stoves can burn corn pellets. I am wondering if corn produces as much heat as wood.

    Generally speaking, I believe they produce about the same amount of heat. I have heard some corn pellets result in more ash though.

    Low cost is one of the biggest benefits of using corn pellets, depending on where you live. Corn pellets are clean burning, making them eco-friendly.

    Corn pellets are fuel pellets made from corn (maize) for use in corn pellet stoves. Burning shelled corn produces about the same amount of heat as wood pellets (8,000 BTU/lb.) but results in more ash, so the maintenance on the pellet stove in terms of ash removal is greater.
