    I've been lurking here for years, finally signed up. Did a lot of research on this forum before buying my stove, lots of great info here! Just had my new to me Harman P68 installed last week. It's in my walk-out basement, house is a 1900 sq. ft. 2 storey, finished basement adds another 1000 sq. ft. House was built in 2005 and is very well insulated, hoping to heat the basement and main floor with the Harman. Got a great deal on the Harman, it was used for 2 seasons, and I paid $2200 including venting and 35 bags of pellets. Looking forward to the winter!

    Oh yeah, I know you guys like pics...and beer.

    What no fire? You got them pellets to burn. Very nice. Should keep things toasty without breaking the bank! Depending on your fuel source you could have the payback in less than 2 years.

    Congrats and welcome to the club!

    I bought a house with a P68 in the basement last year. My install is similar to yours.

    It does a great job heating most of my 1,200 sqft Cape, although the top floor can be cool like 68ish when the P68 is running full steam. I use baseboard oil heat on really cold days to make sure I don't freeze pipes on outside walls.

    I burned last year 24/7 and found to go through 2 bags a day. However, I was using cheaper box store bags. This year I have 3 tons of CleanFire Pacific softwoods that burn hot and clean. (I had a few bags last year)

    Heating the basement is my priority, I didn't want to heat it with electric baseboard. Keeping the floors warm on the main floor will be an added bonus.

    I've already picked up a surge protector (not pictured), and started on my stash for the winter. Everything I have read says the Harmans are not pellet picky, so I'm trying a few different brands. My stash so far:

    35 bags of Comfy Cozy (came with the stove)
    45 bags of Eastern Embers
    20 bags of Trebios (Walmart specials)

    Gonna pick up another 50 bags of Comfy Cozy's tomorrow when the sale starts ($4.49/bag).

    Congrats on a fine purchase and welcome to Hearth,com! I see you have a cheap supply of pellets in your area, that's a good thing. Grab yourself a chair, place it in front of the P68, grab yourself a beer and enjoy the show.....

    I tried a couple of bags of these a few years ago and thought they were a decent pellet. I haven't seen them since. I'd like to try them again.
