I am looking at possibly purchasing a small 2nd stove for my second floor. I was wondering if anybody has the Thelin Gnome or Parlour stoves. Are they good stoves and do they put out decent heat? Also anyone know what they cost?

I have the Parlour and am on my third winter using it. The only problem I have had is that I had to replace the ignitor last month. I was not surprised because I run the stove on a thermostat so the ignitor gets a lot of use. I am heating a 1200sf ranch with it and when using good pellets I can keep the house near 70 degrees on low and high 70's on medium if I keep it running off of the stat. With the stat I can keep the house at any temperature I like, and we keep it much warmer on the stove than we did with the oil monster in basement and I generally use about 3 tons per winter. The stove was not cheap, as I recall it was around $4000.

Heating a 2000+ sq foot Victorian with a Thelin Parlour..... 10 foot ceilings and all..... ran the stove on medium while we slept... It was 32 outside when I got up.... It was 81 on the first floor... 2nd floor was about 70...... Why did I wait so long to get one of these ????? Chimney Doctor in Belvidere, NJ has one in the window (gnome)..... Looks nice....

JAY was a great guy for thelin, the new owners dont know the product as well, but are somewhat helpful, just wonder how long this company will continue.. JAY had a good thing going.
