Contacted 3 Harman dealers on quotes on Harman accentra 52i tc. Best price is $5062 with complete install. Questions are, Anyone having issues using cheaper pellets? Is the unit worth the money?. People that have this stove are you disappoint?.. Seconding questing my pick on pellet insert.

I just bought and installed this last month and only have 15 or so bags through it. I've used 6 different brands/quality of pellets and I haven't noticed a difference but I've been burning wood for the last decade and this is my first time burning pellets. I'm a pellet noob...

With a self install in a 10' masonry fireplace, I paid $3989 for the stove and $600 for the chimney liner, cap and OAK. Looks like you're getting a pretty good price installed. The OAK was about $300 total with the ventilated cap.

So far, the stove has been great. So nice to have consistent heat vs the fluctuations inherent to wood burning. Only gripe is the blower rattles sometimes. I need to contact Harman to determine the problem. The touch screen is intuitive and nice with cleaning prompts based on fuel consumption.

Hope my experience helps you some.

These are really good deals, I cant get a quote anywhere near those prices here in CT.

Today dealer did site inspection. He suggested to do install around end of July. Reasoning is so stove warranty wouldn't be wasted during summer. Idea good or really doesn't matter?.

Guess that makes sense.

My state has a grant going on for clean burning pellet stoves (< 2 gm/hr). I just submitted paperwork to get $700 back from Maryland. Might want to check with your state in case you would miss a deadline or something. Unlikely that you don't already know about it but thought I would mention it.
