Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: The dependability of steel with the controlled heat of cast iron. Very even heat convection. You can sit right next to this stove and not be cooked by it.

Dislikes: Door size. A 15 inch door for a cross loading 18 inch fire box does not make complete sense but given the reduction in hearth requirements because of this, I'm not sure I should complain.

Comments: This stove is excellent and pleasing to the eye. I keeps our whole house in a good comfort range without effort. I am glad we went with the T4. It is sized perfectly for our energy efficient ranch. As our skills improve using this non catalytic technology, I'm sure we will love it even more. Please write to me if you have specific questions. Tony (Alderlea T5) from Long Island was a great help in my research and I would love to be able to lend the same kind of assistance to someone who needs it.
