    Hi FILDO ,
    I think you mentioned in your review of the Palezzitti stove that it dose not have an air wash. In fact it dose, here is a copy of there brochure,thanks image.jpg

    Nice looking stove , and seems like it's very efficient as well... I could really go for one, and put my Quad Castile Insert on Craigslist in a heartbeat... lol...

    Only problem is if you're not real mechanically blessed, what do you do if it needs serviced or something breaks and you have to get parts for it? I looked for Dealers and they are all in Canada nothing in the USA.... There should be a way to use the Remote to just turn it on and off... I note that you say the remote wont work with temperatures, but I only use my remote to turn my Quad on or off.... Do you know about how much this stor weighs?

    Just curious what stack temperatures you guys are experiencing with these Palazetti pellet stoves?
    92% efficiency seems high for an air pellet stove.

    I downloaded the brochure also as well as an install manual to see what the stove interior parts were like, they have a few nice diagrams of it. It seems to be quite impressive on paper, and the specs on this one says it has a 50 lb hopper, and uses some sort of a star auger system, different from the conventional auger, and they claim you can't get a pellet bridged over the opening like we can with regular auger feeds. Looks like it is also self cleaning as far as it dumps the ash into an ash pan and cleanup looks very simple and easy. The price looks decent too.... Still the question remains as with any product, when or if it has a problem who repairs it and where do you get your parts.... My guess is you can send to Canada which is where all the dealers seem to be located... Overall I really like this stove and I definately would unload my Quad insert for one of these...

    The Palazzetti USA distributer is in New Hampshire and there are dealers throughout the country. I called the distributer and there were 4 dealers within a 200 mile radius of where I live in New York

    The remote supplied with the stoe, turns it on-off and blower up-down, flame setting up-down. The remote isn't thermostatic.:)

    Hi Tay,
    I sit at a right angle to the stove and watch the movement in the firebox. In order to have an air wash, fresh air has to drop down from the top of the glass to the bottom. The airflow in my stove goes up the back, curls around the front and fly ash bounces off the glass. No airwash on my stove, glass fogs up soot after 20 lb. of pellet consumption.:p

    Who is the USA distributor in NH?
    I know Piazetti is in NH also.
    But this is Palazzetti

    Pia and Palla must be different, no?

    174F is very cool.
    Any way you can check the temperature in the firebox?
    With these 2 values we would know the efficiency.

    Thanks for the info on the distributor in MA.

    An infra-red point&shoot gun thermometer will be able to do this.
    Not sure how accurate they are.
    I know they are not that expensive

    Hi Xena,FILDO, and all friends,

    The Palazetti Ecofire Prima ia doing a great job by crancking lots of btu's and keeping the house warm, so far so good.
    FILDO, what good wood pellets do you use for your Palazetti stove ?, I use here in RI the Vermont softwood pellets, it is not cheap!!, it is between $5.50 - $6.00 a bag, Thanks and stay warm. image.jpg

    Hi Tay, Xena and all friendly pellet heads,

    My Palazzetti is also working flawless and cranked out the BTU's especially during the recent cold spell. My pellet consumption is down 30% compared to my previous stove and the house is war,. I am using Somersets at $4.18 bag from Lowes. They burn very hot and the stove stays clean longer. ;)

    Phildo, the airwash doesn't have to be at the top of the glass. Judging by Tays last pic, it is at the bottom of the glass.

    Notice how its not cloudy at the bottom?

    Look for a small slit, or gasket missing somewhere. Running a lighter, cigg, incense stick, or a candle around the bottom edge of the glass. The airwash will "suck" the smoke or flame into the gap.

    Beautiful stoves.... I want one!! :)

    Phil: I glanced through the Palazzetti Manual and I believe minimum clearance to a door or window is 4' to the side or below and 1' above. It does not reference any minimums when using make-up air. Is there a difference? Did you vent yours in a masonry flue?

    I guess you could be correct about the air wash. Being a long time owner of Quadrafire wood & pellet stoves the fresh air washed down from the top of the glass to the bottom, this stove doesn't do that. I doubt there is a seal problem, door fits tight and the stove uses oven type gaskets instead of rope gaskets. The stove is indeed awesome, can't believe how low my pellet consumption is and high high the heat output is :cool:
