Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: I use the pellet stove only to heat my 2100sf home in the Sierra Foothills. I perform the annual maint and vent cleaning myself. This stove has worked great for 7 straight years, running almost 24 hrs a day (on the lowest setting) for 3 to 4 months per year.

Dislikes: The blower is a little noisy.

Comments: This stove, and Goldenfire pellets have been great,...until my last 1/2 ton batch of Goldenfire which seems to have more fines than usual, enough to cause my stove to shut down from lack of fuel on low speed, and once due to a sawdust jam.
