Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Deep firebox

Dislikes: Up and down heat even when burning almond. I am a slave to this machine. Maximum burn times are 4-6 hours. Hard to get a good night\'s sleep. If you slow thew stove down to increase burn times, house gets cold too fast. Lopi claim 200o sf heating. This stove chokes with that much demand. I have a 600 sf great room w/25\' vaulted ceilings and a large loft above that. This stove stuggles on cold nights to consistently heat all areas evenly. I would nopt recomend a Lopi to anyone with large heating demands unless you want to be a slave to your fire around the clock- burn times are not what Lopi claims. Not even close. I am selling this stove to my neighbor who has a house half the size. It should outperform his 20-year old stove. Its still a decent stove for a smaller area..

Comments: I cannot wait to get my new stove!
