Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: This Lopi Answer heats my lower level quite well. Easy starts with damper all the way open. Nice even burn once the first few logs are red hot. After 8 years no repair or maintenance issues.

Dislikes: The glass door does not really come clean with the air wash.

Comments: When the lights went out for five days during a snow storm, we all slept in the lower level and burned wood 24 hours a day without a problem. I just filled the box before we went to sleep, left the damper level open about 1/2 inch, and it kept us warm till early morning. I call this old reliable. If you are planning to get a stove to heat more than one level of your home, I suggest getting a bigger stove.
