I currently heat my house with a wood stove on the main floor of my 2 story house. I love the wood heat.

Over the summer I bought a Pleasant Hearth PH50CABPS on Marketplace for $300 off a widow to heat my 3 bay insulated garage.

I love the thing. I bought a pellet mizer and have it hooked to a wall thermostat so it can cycle on and off as needed to heat my garage.
Very, very close to the type of heat a wood stove puts out.


Onto my question. I would like to switch to a pellet stove in the house, but there are a couple things I don't like about the Pleasant Hearth stove.

It's not very attractive and the stove is a little loud.

What's out there for stoves that will hold 80#s of pellets, aren't annoyingly loud and look decent?

Under $2000 would be nice too.

Harman P68 holds 76 lbs. of pellets without the hopper extension, they produce great heat (even radiant heat, not just what the convection blower produces), they can be dressed up with different trim kits & ash door covers. You won't find them new for under 2k, but if you are patient, you could likely find a used one in your price range.

1.) They are all a lot louder than a wood stove.
2.) might be a problem for a good one.

This stove is quiet because it does not use electric (gravity feed) and may be concidered a piece of art work. I have never used one or seen it run in person. But if you want quiet and under $2000 here you go. I don't think the dog or rock wall is included.​
