Hey guys. I wanted to ask around to see if anyone anyone in Somerset, PA area is on the hunt for a Drolet Heat Commander? We bought it last year and had it installed in our A frame house. It’s an awesome wood furnace. I mean honestly. It’s spectacular. But it’s way too big for our house. We spent the entire winter on the top of Laurel Mountain sweating. Our house really isn’t a good candidate for a wood furnace like this. Our whole house has a very open floor plan with only 3 vents in the whole house going to the upper level. The furnace is located in our walkout basement.

Anyway, we’re having our chimney re-done this year and we have decided to dump the Drolet Heat Commander. It’s just too big for our house. We’re going to replace it with a Regency wood burner that will be a much better fit for our house. The new wood burner has already been ordered. I need to get rid of the Drolet by May. I’ve tried to put some ads online for it. But doesn’t seem like anyone wants it.

It’s a new furnace. It’s only been burned in for the 2021-2022 heating season. It’s in great condition. I’ve been asking $3,000 for it. Drolet want’s $5k for it now on their website plus freight charges of $500. I’m just wondering if anyone on the forms might be in the market for a new Drolet Heat Commander? I’ve got to dump it by May. And I’m afraid I might be stuck with it. I bought it in July of 2021.

FYI - I posted this by accident in the wrong form category and I couldn’t delete the other one… This should be in this form category for furnaces.

Where do you see this price? This is what I have found...and MFP is basically their factory store.

Going to be a hard sell for that price. Especially now with the 26% tax credit on both the burner and install when buying new.

I just looked and now it says $3,999 on the Drolet website. I must have been in CAD or something when I looked last. Because I swear I saw $4,999.
If you sell it for <$2500 it will likely sell faster. You probably paid close to that a year ago. I got mine for $2600 shipped last September (2021).

I think it must have sold...there was an ad on FBMP for it...but that's long gone.
And they haven't logged back in here since 3/25...
