Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: It heated house well.

Dislikes: It would not produce ash in ashpan, but 1/3 to 1/2 pellet-sized charcoal. They sent numerous chips over 3 years, but the problem remained. You may only order online or by phone from the manufacturer, but they are very slow to provide any type of service. I just sent the 3 year-old unit to the dump, because you can't keep doing a 2 hour plus power down every two or three days to clean out the ash pan. Basically, I wasted both time and money on this purchase!

Comments: This experience makes me hesitant to buy a pellet stove online ever again!
