Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Throws good heat. Holds hot coals for easy restarts. Simple install (with help). No problems with quality. Very little creosote even on low.

Dislikes: The stove builds up hot coals and doesn't burn them off. It creates so many coals on cold days that there is little room for wood. I have to shovel out the coals to keep the house warm. Kind of annoying but not a big deal.
Overall I'd recommend this stove. The insert sides are flimsy and will rattle. I added extra screws and the rattle is gone.
Fans are a little loud but that is expected for this much CFM.

Comments: I heat a 2200 sq ft home. It keeps one room very warm and the others stay cool. I managed to avoid burning heating oil so I'm happy with this stove.
