Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Significant heat output. Heats the whole house for hours with very little wood. 4-5 logs total for the whole evening. My gas bill will be significantly less and it will pay for itself in no time.

Dislikes: Takes a while to really get the fire going. But that may be due to less than perfectly dry wood.

Comments: I am very pleased with the stove. It is attractive, the blower is pretty quiet and it cranks the heat! Cost could have been a little less, but the Fed's energy credit made it a good buy! I've burned quite a lot of wood and the ash build up is almost non-existant. Thoroughly pleased.
