Hello Everyone! This is my first post, and I'm still pretty new to the forum. I've been considering getting a pellet stove, and have done a little bit of reading, which has been very helpful. Thank you all! I wasn't planning on buying anything quite yet, but I recently came across what seems like a good deal on my local CL. First a little background. (If you'd like to just read my question, you can skip the next two paragraphs). I own a two story, ~2200 sf, house with a ~1200 sf finished basement. The basement is heated by a propane wall heater, which does a fine job for what we need down there. For the main living area, I have a heat pump for the shoulder seasons, which is about 12 years old and works down to about 40 degrees. And then an early 90's cast iron Weso wood stove and electric baseboards for when it gets colder. I live along the mountain in west central PA, so I'm heating with wood and electricity for mostly all of Late November/December - March. My wife and I both like having a woodfire, and the wood stove we have works like a champ. Usually the wood stove does most of the heavy lifting with only a small amount of supplemental heat from the baseboards. But my first daughter was born this past summer, so I didn't spend as much time as usual cutting and splitting wood. Plus this past winter was particularly long and cold, and I ended up running short on my wood supply. That meant more electric heat, which as you can imagine killed my electric bill. And seeing as I would rather spend more time in the future with my daughter, and less time cutting/splitting/stacking/hauling wood, I've been considering getting a pellet stove. I'd still keep the wood stove in place, which is situated in our family room along one outer wall of our first floor. It does a good job for the family room (obviously), and an ok job for my office and the kitchen which are directly off the family room (I can upload a layout later to help). But the living and dining room on the other side of the house are generally quite a bit colder. It also does a pretty good job of heating the upstairs bedrooms. With the exception of our bedroom and bathroom, which again are situated on the opposite side of the house as the wood burner. So all that leads me to thinking of installing a pellet stove in the living room on the other side of the house as the wood stove. It could help carry the heating load, and would be easier for my wife to maintain while I'm working during the day. And while I was still planning on doing some more research and pricing, I came across an ad on CL for a used Harman PP38. The seller is asking $300 for the stove and hearth pad. They said it works great, is about 10 years old, and never had any problems with it. That sounds like a good deal to me, but really I don't know that much about them. What do you all think? And sorry for the long first post!
