I've never paid any attention to the pellet stoves so I don't know much about them.
Who makes a quality pellet stove?
What would one look out for in a stove?
all good points but i think rickwai's is best advice for stove hunting..I prefer Harman. One thing that is as important as stove brand is the quality of the dealer if you are not the do it yourself type. Do they stock parts and have in house service for what they sell? The shop I work for stocks Harman parts. It is rare that I go on a service call that the stove is not repaired and running when I leave. All common parts on the truck. How long have they been selling the brand that they currently carry? Are they close enough to you to be able to get to you quickly if you need service? And last, I would go with a family owned shop over a larger place, service is typically better. Any of the brands mentioned above you will not find in the big box stores.
Definitely not. But I'm an owner of a Harman 52i insert and I couldn't be happier. So there's that.Bay a Harman and go broke ! That said they are among the best. I know cause I have one.
If the cost is an issue then you simply must consider the Englander 25pdvc . It just might be the best low end stove available and you will still have enough money left to buy enough pellets to get you thru the winter.
Either way you won`t go wrong.
Money can often be the bottom line on a purchase , isn`t it so?
Aren't these the stoves that require a burn pot modification (bottom holes plugged with hillman plugs) to burn right?This is a little out of date however some models have not changed so the information is still the same!
I am running the England's 25PDV with amazing results after seven years and no major breakdowns or repairs.
If Scott updates the data, we may have more information to base decisions on. Please?
Hey Jay...can you PM me if you are still monitoring the forums...running the same stove and have some questions.Buy once cry once. You do get what you pay for. I bought a Lopi (Travis industries) and it truthfully came down to the wife liking the look of the Lopi over the harmon. I'm very pleased with it. It keeps our whole home over 70 including the rooms in the back of the house, burning 2 pounds per hour. Mind you I live in the northwest and it's 35 degrees right now.
