Been plenty of yrs ago running a harman multi burner never gave ash a second thought. Past winter heating source was oakdale wood insert that needed weekly cleaning. Wife not happy with firewood which made hubby life miserable. Harman accentra 52i tc has replace wood stove so here comes my question. Is ash from cheaper pellets really a issue or is it just because people dont want empty ash pan often? Harman states it'll burn any pellets with no problem. Seeing prices range from $215 to $285, for saving of $70 per ton I could deal with more ash. Correct me is I'm wrong.
