Hi folks, as most of you know I am relatively new to pellet stove, but am enjoying learning and experimenting with my new stove. I have had it for one month now and when I bought it I also bought 3 tons of North American pellets from HD. I had questions about the amount of hot air coming out of the stove and after much research I realized the stove was performing normal (thanks hearth forum guys). This past weekend I picked up 4 bags of Geneva from a local farm and today I thought I would give them a try. WOW.. what a different.. I keep checking the stove settings because the flame is bright and tall compared to what I was used to seeing (on level 3 of 5). The heat coming out of the stove is 40 degrees higher than what I was getting with the North A pellets. This lesson supports what the people here at Hearth.com have been saying all along, "All pellets are not created equal".
