Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Starts very easily, once hot burns with no visible smoke. I get true overnight burns are easy to achieve. I can load the stove at ten and still have a hot stove with a good bed of coals at seven. Very nice looking with lots of glass that stays very clean. Very close clearance to the walls. All in all, I would say it is just about perfect for us.

Dislikes: Somewhat boxy appearance. Be careful if your wood is very dry. Thia stove can easily cook us out with a load of very dry wood.

Comments: I installed this stove and chimney myself with a little coaching from Dan at Highland Sweep in Branchville, NJ. He is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.
When I was building my hearth I needed a schematic showing the fresh air intake. I called Pacific Energy and they immediately responded.
THIS IS THE STOVE TO GET! Welded firebox and extremely heavy stainless steel baffle system are built to last. This stove, unlike almost all others I have researched has no weak points that I could find. BUY IT!
