    Hello, I have a few questions I was hoping the users on here could address for me! My Mum is going to be getting a pellet stove here pretty soon and she has talked to couple of places. They were suggesting a Mt. Vernon stove. First one was an AE Insert, my Mother did not like that and is dead set against an insert. So they suggested a regular Mt. Vernon Pellet stove. I saw some information in regards to a Napoleon NPS40 Pellet stove. It was a whole lot cheaper, the Mt. Vernon was approximately $5,000.00 for installation and everything. I just don't want her to be overpriced.

    I also saw some videos on youtube with a guy going over the features on the Napoleon NPS40. It seemed very safe, innovative and clean. Thus, I really liked that choice. Unfortunately, I am very ignorant towards this alternative fuel, I know nothing about it. So, I was hoping someone could give me a run down on stove choices, price ranges and ultimately, the biggest concern, safety. Also, what would happen during a power outage? I heard something about it not working during a power outage. Does this have to have electricity to run? If so, does the battery pack automatically take over when the power goes out? Also, does the pellet stove thermostat regulate heat as well as other heat sources?

    I know that pellet stoves release a poisonous gas, carbon monoxide. I don't think that it will be that big of a problem, especially with detectors.

    So any information would be greatly appreciated, please and thank you's! =)

    I saw that video. The stove looked good but i couldn`t find any info or reviews on it myself.
    Nicely priced at $1826 too.
    Here`s an authorized dealer (below) on Craigslist who has them for $1699

    Good Luck,
