Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: Nice & warn in the living room, and most of the house until the outside temp got way down in the single digits. The windows are drafty and will be next years project.

Dislikes: The fan(s) in the unis are a bit noisy. The firebox is too small for overnight burns, but pretty good for the rest of the time.

Comments: We love it and want to put another wood stove in the basement or family room on the other side of the house. Just need to figure out a chimmney.... Dealer is the best
