Just signed up to this forum have been reading it since last summer and got a lot of useful information. I’ve been burning wood for the last 30+ years finally got to be to much work so I switch to pellet stove last August. My stove is in basement and it heats a CapCod house 1300 sq ft. I am heating my cellar, up stairs main floor and a bedroom on top floor, after doing a lot of research I decided on the Drolet ECO65 by SBI. I ordered it from Northern Tools, wanted to get it from local dealer but no dealers in my area and nothing they stocked fit my needs or my wallet, and reading all the reviews on here and other sites thought this would best fit my needs. Received stove on 8/2/12 very well packed, glad I paid extra for tailgate delivery very heavy unit. Could not even pull it back on my hand truck, driver took it off truck and put it in back yard for me to uncrate. I installed that week and started it the first cool day in October, no problems took right off. I had a few small problems witch I will post at another time. Don’t want to make my first post to long. Just wanted to say I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants a good reliable pellet stove nothing fancy and not a lot of buttons to set. Just push primer button, set for manual or thermostat and set heat level button 1 thru 6 it‘s that easy. I clean an vacuum stove every Saturday morning, I turn off early in morning go for coffee with the guy’s when I get back I clean an vacuum, clean glass, empty ash pan takes about 20 Min. I do wipe glass twice a day with paper towels learned this little trick on this site and pull off any build up on end of combustion pot, about 2min to do. Found I can open door while stove is running if its set on #1 setting to do this and stove takes right off again. I only get build up on end of burner when I run on #1setting, found if I try to go to higher setting with out cleaning off top of combustion pot stove will shut off on high limit. Only happens on #1 if you want to go to a higher setting #2 or higher you must clean off. I use an old saber saw guide to swipe off burner. I will say wood heat was much hotter and I liked it better, but I like the house very warm pellet stove gives off different type of heat feels cooler unless I turn temperature up to #2 or #3 setting but on the other hand I only fill stove twice a day not every few hours as I did with the wood stove. I could fill it once a day but I only keep 2 bags in hopper at one time manual say’s it could take 120 pounds if I really wanted to but then I wouldn’t have any thing to do at night. With the wood stove house was always between 75 and 80 degrees now its between 71and 75 on settings 1 or 2 depending on temperature outside. Just had to get use to it. I don’t see many articles on the Drolet ECO65 so I guess thats a good sign only trouble I read about was some one guy having a wiring connection problem witch he fixed.
