Almost all these posts are from 2010! Nothing more recent? I'm brand new here, first post, so here's some background. In early March 2013 due to a horrendous electric bill in January (all electric house...975 square ft) of $480! Checking alternatives, I'm not a candidate for solar (too many trees), didn't want the hassle of wood, so I settled on a pellet stove. Harman P-43. Had it "professionally" installed. Permits & inspections all went well. Burning pellets from Tractor Supply and Lowes (both Lignetics...different packaging) and Agway (another brand) and ALL say "Premium, by the time the weather got warm, I had burned about a ton. A bag a day. Being new....I fiddled with the feed and room temp controls because some burned differently, but all in all, no problems with any. (With Agway, I had to slow down the feed...unburned pellets were dropping into the bucket) Bought myself a dust vacuum which I used twice. My store of purchase told me I would have to use a vacuum mayber once a month, and to get my stove cleaned by them once a year (2 tons)...and that no matter what, any brand of pellets was "a crap shoot". Even different bags of the same brand. Interesting. Verified by the service guy that came out to "professionally" clean my stove....FWIW. (I had him come out after 1 ton to see what he did) For this upcoming winter,I have a "lead" on O'Malley pellets $260/ton plus $50 delivery AND stack...and told him (service guy) about the "reviews" here....especailly about the sometimes unusual length of the O'Malley pellets that, according to some posters here, jammed up their augers. Said I would not have that problem with the Harman product. Other brands, he said, their auger is not much more than "glorified wire" while the Harman auger is solid steel, with steel gearing...and he's "never" had one jam up on him. I've got to take him at his word...so, for this coming winter, I've ordered 2 tons of the O'Malley product. At current prices...plus the stove and install, I figure it will pay for itself by the 3rd winter.My May electric bill....They owe ME 7 bucks and change.All thermostats "off"...stove does the whole house. There it is. Comments?
