    Hello All,

    We are getting a great education from this forum and would welcome advice and suggestions from people who have bought or know about wood pellet/biomass stoves regarding how to minimize the sound of the fan that goes with it. The room we will put our stove in is the main room in our house and the acoustics are slightly echo-y. Does anyone have a suggestion for a great stove that takes multiple fuel sources, has traditional wood stove styling and is quiet and peaceful in your living room?? We are leaning toward the Lopi Leyden for it's looks, features and for the fact that we can exhaust it from under a non-opening picture window, but are not sure about the loudness of it. Would welcome all responses!

    You can read all you want from manufacturers' literature, but noise is a highly subjective phenomenon. Some people object to a low but constant noise while others object to a quieter but intermittent noise. Pellet stoves will have constant noise from the blower and intermittent noise from the auger. Some people actually want the blower noise to drown that from the auger so YMMV.

    FWIW I decided on a Quadra-Fire Mt Vernon after seeing one in operation. The owner is a piano teacher and it's right in her studio. She wanted quiet. That plus a lot of other concerns - objective and subjective - factored into my decision.

    I recommend seeing a lot of them in person - we're coming up on the end of the heating season so time is on your side. Enjoy - deciding on a stove is the fun part!

    Here in Maine I would not try to run any pellet stove without having vertical of at least four feet. I have seen a lot of houses with black stains and burn marks with just horazontal pipe.
