    I was wondering how many people leave their stoves running when they are at work or out shopping? I only let mine run alone unintended for 2 - 3 hours

    We let the Harman run so long as we're not going away for the night.

    My 3 stoves run whenever the temp calls for them to I clean them completely every 3-4 days including exhaust pipes once a week, I'm confident they will keep us warm as I think upkeep is everything with my stoves

    I trained my dog sitter to feed the stove when she feeds the dog.
    To answer the OP, The pellet stove is our primary source of heat. I wouldn't consider shutting it down, other than for cleaning, unless there was a true emergency.

    Since January 12 or so mine has been off for about three hours for cleanings, and shut down for two days when it was fairly warm. Other than that it just runs. Granted its a furnace, but except for ductwork it's no different than most any pellet stove.

    When I first started burning, I looked at it this way...My oil burner works with fire and I leave that unattended day and night, The only difference with the pellet stove is that you can see the fire. If you stove is installed correctly, and nothing flammable is within reach.... No Problem!!

    So we're not the 1%ers? I work 12 hours shifts and when the wife is away, it putts away all day, every day. These things have many safeties so if there were to be a problem, it SHOULD shut down.
