Mark I know little about pellet stoves but when you get your shortlist, do some googling on plugged augers. I have a few people who pulled brand A and went with brand B because the augers were plugging. Company A was blaming the pellet choice but company B seemed to have no trouble with any pellets.

I know, this post is useless without company names. Think of it as cautionary advice regarding a feature until I can remember to ask them what brand A was. Then I'll PM you. I don't like to globally trash-talk a company on hearsay.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Not sure what type of unit you're considering Mark, but we just got a Real Fyre fireplace installed from RH Peterson ...looks just like a real wood burning fireplace without the cost, mess and danger of burning wood (no nice wood burning smell though).

Napoleon makes some top notch stoves and fireplace inserts too.

Perhaps you've misunderstood this interweb thing.

Hey Adrian! Nice to see you around!

We don't have a fireplace. I light incense for that smell in the winter (Seriously- it's the only thing this house doesn't have that I've always wanted. Though if I had one, I'd likely put a pellet insert in it anyway!)

We started looking at a Napoleon funny enough. But my two primary choices now are a Hudson River Kinderhook or a Vistaflame VF170. Both are freestanding units that are more practical than pretty (it'll be in our basement).

We have a good dealer option for either of them. I just have to decide if the somewhat lower-output Kinderhook will make me wish I had a bit more output to possibly make it the primary heat source or if the higher-output Vistaflame will have me running it at a lower-effeciency "low" setting all the time.

I'm spending all my free time on a wood pellet forum learning everything I can.

That's right.

You guys don't fulfill all my needs so I've been seeing another forum on the side.

BTW, Murph was supposed to PM me some helpful info, but since he hasn't done that yet, I'm publicly shaming him here.

It's true. I'm still waiting for my two friends to get back to me. I shall pass on the shaming.

Done. Ordered the Kinderhook. I will be able to work in my workshop this winter and, finally, after 15 years, the kitchen won't be so cold for Joyce.

I'll get some woodworking done this Winter AND likely get more pies!

Mwaaaahaaahaaa! ::Evil laugh while rubbing hands together::

I finally had a chance to photograph the pellet stove today. It's hard to make it look good when it's in the basement! smile
