Likes: HEAT - We moved to New England from the Caribbean (I know, what was I thinking) and we all love the heat we get from this stove. Also our dealer is Fantastic

Dislikes: The monthly cleaning is a real chore but this is the case with any pellet stove

Comments: We use this stove to heat half of our home, our house is old and drafty and consists of hallways and rooms (not open plan), we have fans in the doorways to circulate the heat and the room the stove is in is 75-80 degrees and our upstairs bedroom (furthest from stove) is 58-62. Our furnace does not come on to heat this area as it is a separate zone from the rest of the house and this area is approximately 2000 square feet. We love our stove and love to be warm in our house, before the pellet stove we spent much more in oil than ever and our house was always a bit chilly. The cost of oil being down we are not saving as much as we saved last year (saved about 2500 over the season) but we are still spending less than we would on oil at todays rates. We have 3 kids 8,6 and 4 so we do not notice the fan noise on the stove as our house is normally a bit loud :-)
