Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Nice looking stove - puts out great heat. Top load is
convenient for adding wood during the day.
At -32C keeps my 1600 sq ft home easily heated without
blower on

Dislikes: Burn time is less than expected. Max 5.5 hours. Top load is
nice for adding piece of wood at a time but not for loading
up for at night. Hard to get wood into back of stove to
maximize space.

Comments: Overall a good stove. Had an osburn 1100 insert before. A
good worker but too small. Purchased porcelain finsish
which is nice touch. Also surprized at amount of low smell
during breaking in period.
