I've been joking that I could put a recliner down there in front of it.

I've really fallen in love with this device! Our kitchen and basement are comfortable and cozy for the first time ever in winter, I don't mind the hands-on stuff that it requires, and I think the numbers are going to look very good for the running costs.

I DO like looking at the flame, though. I always have. I find it hypnotic, relaxing and mesmerizing at the same time. I could VERY easily see one of these in a future living room or kitchen. I honestly wasn't expecting THAT... the romance.... from a pellet stove

You guys make it soooo worth while to come here. There is nothing better than starting your Sunday morning with a good coffee and some Mark & Tom posts.

Mark. If you and Joyce are both enjoying the stove this much, the economics make sense. Its not always just about the bottom line. If it was, we would all be listening to music on our old RCA turntable 'system' and eating gruel for breakfast.

Well, honestly, the stove already makes less economic sense than it would for many others. We have a Natural Gas Boiler, which is theoretically the cheapest heating source already....or at least on par with the pellets So I'm not expecting the savings that others get who are using oil, electricity or propane. Many of those people are talking about recovering their costs in a few seasons.

I just read the Sunday paper in the kitchen while eating my gruel and the kitchen was very comfortable. As a matter of fact, I didn't have any socks or shoes as the hardwood kitchen floor is warm from the stove below. And it was 14F degrees this morning with a wind chill of -10F.

Yeah, we won't get the savings that others do, but I'm thankful that is because we already have an economical main heating system. But, I was concerned that the pellet usage would increase our costs, and I don't think that's going to be the case anymore.

I have more to do, with new valves that can be put on each radiator to balance the temps around the house and, at some point, I can do a lot of buttoning-up around the house and in the basement in particular. I'm learning a lot in that other forum and know that it can all only improve from here!

Mark, when you say wind chill of -10, do you mean it feels 10deg lower than the actual temp, or do you mean it feels like -10?

It "feels" like negative 10 Fahrenheit (being specific for our Canadian friends).

It's not that bad now, but it was when I was up at 4:30 this morning.

We have 25-35MPH winds (that's 40-56KPH for you in the Great White North) with gusts to 55MPH (Ahem, 88KPH......trying to stay politically correct here!) smile

In short, a sucky day to be outside!

Have you guys seen the Paul Sellers videos on youtube? This guy is incredible. Pretty much all hand tools, and his videos are really good. I've been watching them all day...
