Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Burns pretty, loads from top or front. Glass stays relatively clean when 'good burn'. Easy to start. On a 25F day it will heat the house with a 70 to 85 range. Top load is good for one or two logs to keep it running. For a big overnight use the front.

Dislikes: At 30% setting and full load I can get 8 hrs at which point I have only coals (not the coal stoker I had). Larger hard wood will help. The grate to the ash tray can become clogged if you don't move logs over it enough or stir the ashes. It needs the air to burn!

Comments: Unit was 'demo' so it wasn't brand new but 'like new'. Price was for basic black paint and included screen.
