Hello fellow pellet guys
Now that the weather has finally gotten cold here in Upstate NY, I am putting together a PRO'S & CON'S piece for the Pallazzetti stove and comparing to my tried and true Quadrafire Castile. I will post it before New years. Merry Christmas to all
I was looking as the Francesca when i was at my dealer a few months ago. They make it in a titanium gray color that i thought was super sharp looking. Price was right too at just over 2k. They also told me that these stoves are rated at actual heat output which is why these stoves seem a little small but can heat a decent sized area. He said the only problems they have from customers are minor things like rattles and noises. Its a nice looking stove if your really space limited and like a modern look.
I do find that the upper two tile plates rattle when the stove is in clean mode. I am going to try some felt tape between the layers. The stove puts out tremendous heat, much more than my Quadra Castile and Whitfield profile 30. It is also much more efficient. My pellet consumption is way down and the exhaust temp outside is warm and not burning hot like my other two stoves. I will be measuring lost heat output in my upcoming post. Have a Merry Christmas!
Great looking stove,
I bought the same stove from the same place in Portland Oregon except ours is in metal black and grey, we are having difficulty installing the 3" duravent adapter that is included in lowe's 3" pellett stove kit, did your stove came in with the company supplied vent adapter as indicated in Palazzetti manual?. The adapter vent is not included with the stove package.The Portland store is closed for the holiday,your reply is apprecaited.
Very nice looking stove! It would be nice to have the whole package - A really nice looking stove that performs as nicely as it looks!
I hope you have a surge protector hooked up to the stove. The electronics look sensitive
Thank you, I have always had a back-up power supply with built in surge surge protector on all my stoves! Most all brands of stoves made today have sensitive electronics
The europeans don't use a pipe adaptor. I found that domestic made pellet adaptors don't fit. I went to Home Depot and got a piece of there 12" pellet pipe. The Lowes pipe right off the back of the stove won't fit. You can use the rest of the Lowes kit! , THE PIPE END WITHOUT THE CRIMP , slides right over the pipe end of the stove. I put some Orange RTV and slid it right on!
The stove is as beautiful as it is efficient. The weather is finally cold here and the stove works flawlessly!
I have learned a great deal about the stove, any other questions I am here to help
The pipe I used off the back of the stove is Duravent #3012A, Duravent also makes this in a 6" length.
To each his own, but I still like a stove to look like a stove. It would look good in a New York style apartment but in my old log cabin I don't think the dog would even sleep in front of it. Just sayin'
Thanks Phildo for your reply, I shall be going to Home Depot for that piece you indicated, so to be clear your stove did not come with a vent adapter as written in the manual. Did you install the fresh air supply for your stove? I am or the installer planing to do that, in order for the stove to be more efficient, the manual indicates that you could reduce the pipe from 3" to 2", I think the 3" pipe is better to supply the stove with condensed cold oxygen-rich air. Thanks again Phildo, great site.
Please check the date on the owners manual, the earlier manuals stated vent adapter inc., the newer manuals don't state this at all. The stove must be run with a fresh air intake. I recommend not reducing from 3" to 2". The intake air-convection blower is an open armature type and relies on the cold air to cool it. The stove pulls alot of fresh air to reach it's efficiency rating. I used a simple 3" aluminum flex dryer vent hose that can be purchased from home depot or lowes for under $10.
I am envious that you have a log cabin and agree with you to a certain extent. I have a 1949 Cape cod designed home and the interior is colonial in trim. The stove doesn't just blend in, it stands out in a good way
All that really matters is that they make heat. -8 here this morning and the first true test of my stove, still 74upstairs
I agree and -8 is mighty cold! Keep warm and Happy New Year
I wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous new year, thanks for the insight, stay warm and cozy
Happy New Year and as promised, please see my new owners review of my Palazzetti stove dated today!
So where is this review??
I think we may go with an Italian for the kitchen dining area. Being sold an hour from me in MN. Just need to due the math and kick the tires on which model.
As promised, I posted it on January 1,@ 1:59 pm. Here is the linke. There is also two additional conversations with the pic's.Did you have a rough New years eve?
