Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Stove really cranks the heat, even more so when the door is off and is replaced with the optional screen.

Dislikes: A little difficult getting started. I think the air adjustment should be a little larger to let more air in on start up. I usually crack the ashpan door a little bit on start up, then shut it and then it is on its own. The handle on the ash pan door should be attached to the door.

Comments: I still love the whole unit I think its worth buying, very pleased with it.
