OK SCF 050 owners, let's hear the good, bad and the ugly on your pellet furnaces. I am considering buying one to supplement my pellet insert to keep the oil hot air furnace switched off this winter. My house is a 2200 SF open floor plane, catherdral ceiling'd contemp with lots of glass. I have a dining room stuck on the back of the house above the furnace room. My "basement" is a 2-car garage under with a little extra space. Well insulated garage doors. My insert is a St. Croix York rated at 40,000 btu and centrally located under the catherdral cieling part of the house. I keep my upstairs bedroom and bathroom doors closed during the day and they get pretty chilly. I was hoping to run a pellet furnace 24/7 and augment with the insert. My understanding is that the SCF 050 is discontinued. There are some used ones around in the $2000-2200 range. I think a Harman PF100 or St Croix Revolution might fit the bill a little better, based on my SF, but they are close to double the cost and th PF100 might be a little big for the space I have available next to the oil monster. I iunderstand the SCF 050 is basically all manual operation. How many days/bags of operation do you get between clinker/ash dumpings. What happens if you don't dump and it fills up all the way?
