    Pretty quiet to be honest with you the combustion blower isn't really noticeable
    The distribution blower I have set in the middle of the dial this actually allows the fan to speed up and down based on heat demand, when on low hardly noticeable.
    THE AUGER :coolgrin: :coolgrin: That can be a bit tricky.. Your post on the other thread, I mentioned about the vibration of the shrouds when the auger is feeding, This can be fixed...... What can't is the CHA-CHUNK sound of the slide plate trying to chop through a pellet. :zip: That is all.

    With the Quad 1200i the room blower on high would be the loudest noise. On medium it is not much more than the combustion blower which is pretty low. Never heard the auger running. Just an occasional plink plink of the pellets in the pot.

    We installed an Enviro Empress this summer.

    I can barely hear the auger and the combustion fan is the quieter of the two fans.

    We have been impressed with the stove's ability to heat the house on the few chilly nights we've had so far in Northern Vermont.

    Can't wait to have the stove running round the clock!
