First I would like to thank all the people contributing to this forum. I've researched and asked a few questions on here regarding the pellet stoves and have gotten a lot of useful information. Now I would simply like your opinions if I should look further in the matter or stay where I am. I'm looking to heat a well insulated 1100 sq ft garage with a 15 foot ceiling. I currently use a wood stove (which can easily put the temp in the mid 80's on the coldest of days) when a lot of heat is needed or a propane heater just to take the chill out when the outside temp is 40 or above. I was looking at getting a pellet stove that has the on/off mode and hook up a thermostat so it would turn on an hour or so before I get home and go off at night. It looks like if I did this I would go through ignitors more frequently. If I ran it in hi/low mode I would run through more pellets and probably require more cleanings. I know I would like the ease of pellet stove versus the trouble with the wood stove but would I be better off just staying with my current setup? UPDATES I keep an oil filled electric heater going in the garage so it never gets really cold. Wed night the temp dropped to 22 degrees. Thurs got up to the low 40's and when I got off work the temp was 37. Temperature inside the garage was 61. I can not ever recall it getting below 50 during the coldest times of the year.
