Comments: We installed this stove in October of 2005 and have now run it through our first winter. We will most likely shut it down in a couple weeks, which will be mid-May (the nights are still cool). We had intended for this to be a supplement to our propane boiler, but the pellet stove shouldered 95% of the heating of the whole house at 70F (and we never set it above the medium setting all winter). The propane boiler only kicked on during the coldest weather -5F or colder. We wish we had bought our pellet stove years ago......WE'RE WARM AND WE LOVE IT!
