I have recently purchased the Englander pellet stove (1500 sq ft model from Home Depot) and the whole setup (stove and Simpson Dura Vent chimney system) cost about $1800. I came across a Breckwell pellet stove which heats 2000 sq ft and has a larger hopper capacity (and an ashbin which the Englander does not have) which I can get delivered for about $1600; it would be about $1850 total with the chimney setup. I am hoping I made the right purchase as the Englander (my brother has one and loves it - he services it himself and has had the company help him considerably at no cost) had a lot of praise and it seems Breckwell, according the posts I saw on this site, has some reliablity/customer service issues. I have a raised ranch in the northeast and I would put it on my top level which is 1500 sq ft and well insulated. Any input and advice would be greatly appreciated as I am a newbie to this whole process.
