    I just thought of the game changer---

    Real time control based on a SoaP or REST call to a weather service feed. It will KNOW based on your zip code the hour by hour forecast and can adjust with 'AI' ahead of time to ramp up before it gets super cold and can't keep up.
    30 now, 10 in a few hours, run a few degrees above swing . :)

    Not to beat our own drum but the Enerzone Euromax fits the majority of the bill on the above items...

    Ok heres a few more:
    • Digital magnahelic sensor feeds right into the board to adjust combustion/exhaust air pressure automatically. Eventually, if it senses too much back pressure triggers a "clean me dummy" message appears.
    • Predictive servicing. All components have a life span... When a ignitor reaches its life span it can warn the user with message, "ignitor part # 12345 will soon be EOL".
    • Non users service messages such as " Call SWilliamson at 888-xxx-xxxx tell him to bring a convection blower part #123456.
    • As few moving parts as possible.

    Better and easier access the the stove's innards and other mechanical parts and such. Side, front, top and back panels that come on and off easy.

    HOW ABOUT A LOW-PELLET ALARM THAT GOES OFF WHEN THE HOPPER IS DOWN TO THE LAST 10%. WHY NO STOVE HAS THIS YET IS BEYOND ME.

    A pint or so won't do anything but maybe make the room smell good if you add something. The Elena I just got has a very small pan.

    I just knew some had a Humidifier. Didn't know "How" they were integrated or How much moisture they emitted.

    Actually the Mt Vernon AE with the Data Controller (Looks like a T-Stat) has the LCD display "Low Pellets" using the hopper's optical sensor. The problem is when the sensor get's dirty or goes bad. So we need a control panel that does a check of all sensors and safety switches and tells you if they are bad. LOL

    First, Amen!! on the "QUIET operation" point...:) Our house is on the side of a mountain and one of the real benefits is the peace.

    A few to add:
    An exhaust cleanout somewhere on the front of the unit so you don't have to wrestle the stove out and disassemble the pipe
    Single-lever disassembly of firebox liner with simple access for cleaning
    QUALITY blower, combustion, and auger motors that have long MTBF ratings, not 2-year intervals
    High-temperature rated wiring to the 'hot' parts of the stove
    Honest ratings for output so that the stove that's rated "for 2500 square feet" can actually heat 2500 square feet from 40° to 70° on a 25° degree day
