Keeps my house warm. No mechanical problems thus far. Much nicer than the electric baseboard heat that is in my house.
Pellets expensive and messy. Stove requires constant cleaning. Glass is impossible to keep clean.
If I had to do it over again, I would have gone with a propane/kerosene unit (such as Monitor brand) instead of pellets. Pellets are very expensive as compared to more common fuels such as oil, gas, propane, etc.
