Bought a refurbed 49-trcpm from amfm energy, pulled the nc-30 out of its spot and have the stove hooked to the same lined chimney that the 30 has used for the last 3 years. With the wood stove this time of year it could bring the whole basement from 58-60 to the mid 70s with a start up fire and one average sized load of wood in 3-5 hrs. Now, the CPM has been hooked up and running pretty steadily since thursday evening the warmest its been down there is 69 which is right now, stove has been running on heat setting 7 or higher since this morning and ran on 9 from 3 oclock till now. Now I really didn't expect the 2200sq ft rated pellet stove to have the same quick heating punch as the 2200sq ft rated woodstove, but something just seems off to me here. Ok now for the basic setup info... Stove is in center of basement, 3" pellet vent pro adapter tee up 3' to 90 elbow 3" to 6" adapter connected to a oval Duraliner lined chimney straight up 20'. Pellets used have been 2 bags Pennington natures heat, 2 bags instant heat brand that i got at Tractor supply and a bag of Logik-e pellets. I know the penningtons get poor reviews but i know a person that used the instants most of the winter and liked them and the logiks are labeled as a super premium.
