After much debating we think we may enter the pellet stove club buying a used pellet stove. We found a 4 year old Empress we are going to see tomorrow. If we like the whole pellet heating we will get a second pellet unit an insert for the other side of the house. Seems like Enviro parts are expensive compared to other brands from reading some threads here. How is reliability? Enamel hold up well? Does the OAK work like a true OAK? What's up with installers not wanting to do OAKs? One shop said do it if it makes clearances better. We'd do corner installation and stove would fit our spot with windows with it's height. Anything specific we should check out on this stove? This is the spot we plan to put it with venting on left side. Trying to find a photo of the outside to post.
