The quality of life and often the survival of these people depends on the heating systems reliability. The use of pellets as the main heating source is a great proof of confidence, once they are totally dependent on these.
Pellets are produced under a strict quality control system. Random samples of pellets are analyzed on local laboratories and independent accredited laboratories to ensure quality standards.
