The ht3000 is in stock and on sale at efireplace.com, its on sale cheaper then the ht2000 to, I'm a little confused with the listed btu an hour output though, ht2000 says up to 95k per hour, the ht3000 lists a range of 18.2 to 49.5k an hour with a general 110k btu's. The air control looks like it moved to the bottom of the unit, and the door handle is different. The firebox's look to the same size, the ht2000 has a higher stove efficiency 78% but also higher emissions at 3.9 grams per hour, ht 3000 is 71% efficiency but 1.32 grams per hour. The outer stove dimensions, the ht3000 is slightly bigger, I wonder if the real life output would be the same if you take the averages of the stoves and account for the slightly bigger stove.. idk way out my league there.

On the drolet site it shows the 2000 is cosmetically different shows the 2000 has more cubic ft in the firebox but the glass and door opening is bigger..the first photo is the 3000 and the second is the 2000

The HT3000 is new for 2019. It is the replacement for the HT2000. The new model is cleaner burning and likely their candidate for 2020 EPA qualifications. There will be a lot of turnover in the wood stove industry in the coming year due to the cleaner regs. That in no way makes your purchase a poor one. Enjoy that big boy.

The HT3000 came out in August of 2019. I was watching this stove for a while but it was not yet available so decided to get the HT2000. Its about the same price as the HT2000 yet the specs for clearance are much lower in all directions which would have been perfect with the exception that its a much stronger stove. Since I have no experience with the HT2000 in how it burns and how it will function within my setting, I decided to go with the HT2000 because of its great reviews. The HT3000 is such a nice stove but has no reviews and no real life experience yet but i'm sure it will function as well as the HT2000 if not better but this is only an educated guess.

This will be my first winter with the HT2000. What has your experience been with the HT2000 Trey?

The HT3000 is just a TAB BIT bigger physically from the HT2000 but even the firebox is not that much bigger then the HT2000. However, it is now mobile home approved, decreased clearance on all sides to include top to ceiling and it seem to have a shield all around the stove making it full convection unlike the HT2000 which is only half way covered while the front side is more radiant - which I did not care but settle for it.

Also, new stoves being tested in new ways. You can’t compare the specifications from an old stove that were the result of different testing procedures to the new 2020 test results.

I would actually like to see my old stoves tested with current methods to see how they compare with the old tests as well as other new stoves.

It will put out some heat for sure we had a mild winter and before I got the hang of the stove i had to open a window a few times burn times got me though the night and could liad some wood and it would take off

I rather open a window then keep opening the door to feed it some more wood....lol glad to hear.... I cant wait and hope it performs well within my setting...…

I cant wait to read the reviews on the HT3000 as well....I wished they had put out a performance video from the manufacturer with all the specifics and really advertised it but I guess the performance reviews will speak for itself...
