Caluwe Hydronic Wood and Pellet stoves
Likes: When it is cranked up this unit does put out lots of heat. 119,000 BTU's and can take large cut wood.


Dislikes: When both blowers ( 2 550 CFM's) running it will cool the stove down too fast, and make the stove too cool for a good burn. I do not like the Non-electric bi-metal thermostat. Would like to have something that could over ride it.

Comments: The stove comes with 2 550 CFM fans. Unless you always have a very hot fire, it will cool the stove and slow the burn.
I have placed electrical switches so that I can turn both of the fans on/off independently. This makes for a longer supply of heat, without the cycling on and off but the thermostat. If the stove gets too warm I hit the switch to cool it back down before I turn off the second fan.
