Brokenwing you are up late , or are you like me up early I'm on my way to work have a great day got'a go
Ok, I will upload some pics this weekend! guess I should be able to handle this myself with all this good advice. Nice to know others who burn on low have not had much issue with creosote. I love fire, just in the firepot, not the stove pipe!!
Welcome to the forum Courtney. Nice set-up - love the mantle. I look after the stove in our house but it's free standing with a three foot horizontal exhaust so easy to do If your concerned about doing it yourself, you could hire someone for the first clean and watch. Folks here are pretty good it you need additional advice. Not familiar with your manual but some are pretty good at walking you through this too (mine isn't )
sweet man cave, just pulling your leg, I am up late could not sleep. Wish we had a basement so I could have a man cave!
I now have a pic of my exhaust
Will, from the look of it some folks here want to see your exhaust Nice photo, your house is the same color as mine
Wing here's another pic of the man cave it's where I hang out with all the cool folks of hearth .com
Where's the beer?
Is that a 60" or 72" piece of vent? Looks like a nice set up Will
Again, Love the Man Cave!
Pellet stoves operate much differently than wood stoves. Pellets have a very low moisture content. Where wood, if not seasoned properly, has lots of moisture. So a stove burning wet wood, with low flue temps will have conditions for Creosote to condense out and form in yout chimney.
Burning a pellet stove on Low, with pellets (normal moisture content), will only create creosote in rare conditions (some stoves differ here). Your Quad burns at a good rate with high enough temps to not worry.
What is your vent set up? How much horizontal and how much.vertical? Is it 3" or 4" vent? This will play a part on whether the conditions exist and also your fuel? Do you store your fuel indoors? Outdoors? Covered? Not?

Can you repeat that in english?

Courtney: I had a service tech clean pellet stove after the first winter in use. After that I have done all service myself. Clean the inside, ash traps, vac the hopper, vac the blower as they collect pet hair, and of course I clean the vent with the lint eater after each ton. Then follow up with the leaf blower (do a search lots of great videos) just make sure your neighbors are not in their yard having a picnic when you do this. I use damp rid in the firebox during summer and cap the exhaust outside to keep the humidity of the summer from rusting the stove. I have had stove for 3 winters now and no major problems looking forward to many more warm winters.
thats not hearth on the monitor, I can tell from the scenery.
That looks like my hangout! I clean up with a hand grenade once a month.
