Just wondering does most people leave their pellet stoves burning when no one is home? Most everyone i know leaves a regular wood burning stove running 24/7. My parents have a wood burning furnace in the basement and it runs all winter long never being shut down till spring time. I know things can happen in an instant. But if maintenance is kept up, are pellet stoves just as safe to run unattended, and constantly such as a wood burner.
