Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Close clearance rating works well in a small house.
Good looking stove due to bay window.
Fits nicely between two rooms because you can see the fire when looking at the stove from the side.
Very efficient burning unit. It is fun to watch the gases (smoke) burning around the tubes at the top.
Optional ash box provides safety. You can clean ashes from stove when slightly hot and transport ashes out once they are cool. This is a huge benefit in colder climates.

Dislikes: I don't know if we fired this stove too hot or if it had a poor paint job, as it has been repainted.
The door fit is not the best due to a lack of an adjustable latch. Most of the windows will self clean, but you have to burn it fairly hot to do so.

Comments: This stove has no trouble heating our 30+ year old house, main floor and basement, unless the outside temperature drops below -30 Celsius (-22 Fahrenheit). One year we did not even light the pilot light in the gas furnace. This stove provides all of our home heating requirements unless we are away.
