Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: A flick of the thermosat.....instant fire.....that easy!
Looks very real and natural. Takes five or so minutes to get
warm....fifteen to twenty to really heat up. Very little if any "popping" noise when started. Heats the entire lower floor...L/Rm 16x30Fam/Rm Kitchen and 2 small Bedrooms & Bath

Dislikes: None as yet....going on my third winter with this baby!!
I have not ONE complaint!!

Comments: Rarely ever gets put on high flame. I use it day and night.
I set the thermo on 68-70 and walk away. A ceiling fan works wonders. Its beautiful and rich to look at with the chocolate brown porclain and granite stones. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it if you don't want the hassle of a woodstove!!
