Smart controller has option of manual, thermostat, and weekly operational modes to heat when you want. Reliable, built solid, and strong. Easy to use and clean. Has built-in thermostat, so you don't need a separate one on a wall with a wire running to the unit. Fires up quickly for a warm, toasty room.
Hopper might be too small for some owners. May need to re-feed with pellets often since it only holds 40 lbs. The unit is loud during startup and especially at shutdown.
Pellet stove is good for smaller spaces. Has 24,000 BTU and heats up to 1,000 square feet. The direct vent design has an easy installation and no complicated chimney to install. Comes with everything you need, including the mounting bracket, stove adapter, cap, wall thimble, vent attachment, and twist lock pipe. Insulated with Refletex. Cleaning is simple and straight forward.
Could jam up due to pellet dust. Cotter pin that holds the motor on to the hopper is oversized and may need to be cut.
Fairly easy to start and operate. Simply heat the burn chamber and flue and start the pellet flow with a propane torch. This stove uses a natural draft that will take over and ramp the stove up to temperature. Adjustments are simple by opening and closing fresh air intakes on the front of the stove. Window lets you to see the flame. Uses no electricity. Also approved for mobile home use.
You have to use a propane torch to light it. May need to clean the unit a little after each bag of pellets to maintain efficiency. May need to buy burner baskets every couple seasons as well.
Tested and certified to burn 50% mixture of corn and pellets. Ash deposit and quick start-up. Good quality. Arrives well-packaged. Good for mobile homes.
Might want to hire a professional to install it. Installing this unit yourself could void the warranty and may cause problems with homeowners insurance.
Simple to use and maintain on a daily basis. Keeps house warm for hours. Within 20 minutes of firing up in a 40 degree room, it was at 87 degrees. Starts working with just a push of a button. Very stylish and will enhance any room in the house. Customer service is excellent.
Be aware this pellet stove needs some clearance and a non-combustible platform when you set it up. If power flickers or you hit the wrong button, it shuts down for 30 minutes.
