    That`s the big one. We can assume most of the pellet stove makers have the burn efficiencies down pretty good but there is an equally important need to develop improved heat transfer .

    Thanks Lake Girl for that link to actual efficiency numbers in New Zealand! These are LHV numbers, not HHV, and show most wood stoves around 70% with none over 77% LHV. Pellet stove numbers look a lot better with some Ecotecks at 88%. Some of the American-made wood and pellet stoves don't do too well. Will have to look into how they do the efficiency testing.
