Purchased from: Stove Dealer - Vermont Pellet Stoves
I have 8 years experience heating with a pellet stove (Enviro Windsor). Love the stove, love company - Purchased a Maxx unit 2011 to heat entire house - couldn't be happier! Enviro makes a solid, quality product and stands behind their name - combine that with great dealer support and it's a win-win situation.
The Maxx is a monster and will eat through just about any pellet. 70,000btus, 120lb hopper & 455cfm convection fan will makes me and my family happy campers through the long, cold Vermont winter.
The thing is a beast, but also very simple in design and easy to work within, clean and every part is very accessible. Everything about this stove is quality, no flimsy sheet metal or cheap construction and any issue I ever had with the stove was addressed by Enviro and my dealer very promptly and professionally.
2 year warranty on the electronics (sensors, circuit board, etc.) is very welcoming
Some earlier versions of the Maxx did have some bugs with the control board which sometimes attributed to failed starts and burnpot pileup, but Enviro did address this with later revisions and if you do your research now, you will not see these issues. The stove, circuit board and firmware have all matured. This is often the case when rolling out new products, motherboards, etc. - bugs are found and the issues are resolved.
If your looking for a real BTU workhorse that's easy to maintain then the Maxx is a leader in this category.
