Hi guys, I have a ton of lowes gift cards I've been saving to put towards a pellet stove (no AM FM, sorry) I've narrowed it down to the summers heat rebranded Englander 25-EP or the 10-CPM because they are the newer design, single auger, Full on/off T-stat, and have larger windows. The wifey gives the EP a very slight edge in aesthetics, and of course price. I like the idea of multifuel since it will be a little less picky on pellets, although I don't plan on burning anything but straight wood pellets. We are avid DIYers, have an extensive tool collection, and access to a fully CNC machine shop if need be. Suffice it to say, I don't mind tinkering. Stove will be placed on the east (leeward) side of the ground floor of a 2600 sq ft colonial, fairly open floor plan. There is a wood burning fireplace in the den on the windward side. Home is located on Long Island. We put 900+ gallons of oil through an old peerless boiler, with programmable t-stats set to 66/62/66/62. Natural gas is 5 houses away, but they want $40K to trench it to me. Please help me hobble along on pellets and oil at least until my neighbors are ready to upgrade their boilers. The pellet stove will be primarily supplemental heat, although Ill probably run it right through the season to try and cut down oil consumption. Can you guys sway me one way or another between the two? I appreciate any help, and thanks of course for the hours of previously posted reading material.
