I'm looking for a wood or pellet / corn stove. I want a good quality and a good price. I went to consumer reports to try to find a list there, but after I signed up I found nothing in the form of a list. I'm open to the lists, opinions, facts, and any other information you may have about the stoves. Thanks in advance. After talking with others on the web, I found the answer. I have a pellet stove and it works great. My parents also own one and so does my sister and her husband. They love him. I guess I have no specific recommendation for a stove, but I have some good advice. You do not have to buy a pad at the dealership. You can make your own MUCH cheaper to go and buy pottery or marble (something that does not burn.). Be sure to follow the instructions on the tab to set or create a mobile. I would recommend buying a stove that has a startup to join a thermostat. This way, you do not have to go through manually each time starting stays out of pellets in the stove or be cut for any reason. Pick one that fits your heating needs and style. You can get inlays that look like records of some of the stoves out there. Buy one that is appropriate for the amount of space needed for heating. They can come with decorative exterior panels in different colors and designs, too. The pellets are much cheaper if you buy in bulk most of the time. Find a close, yet so out of the spot, closer to the stove to keep them. The bags weigh about 40-50 pounds, depending on the brand of pills you buy. Having backends loaded pickup trucks and download them (a ton to a ton and a half at a time), it is enough training. Do not do work harder than necessary. LOL. Also, store them in a dry place and not outside. You may notice them outside the store, but they come with thick plastic wrapped around them, no. The highest sediment are not always the best pills. Find something with a lower ash content and producing a higher degree of BTU. You can mix two different types of pills together in his kitchen. Cleaning an oven can cause problems. The black soot leaves no rugs or clothing. I found this out the hard way. Invest in a vacuum cleaner that can handle the ashes, makes cleaning out the tile and the burn area much easier. (One that can handle plaster dust can also handle the ashes ..) NEVER use a cleanser in the "glass". It really is not glass is a transparent ceramic is pourous. Use papertowels, or towel you do not care to clean water. For hard to clean areas, use a knife to scrape up (just as you would for a stove top "glass"). Do not forget to periodically check the ash bucket and dump it. Do not throw it in a trash can inside (it will go everywhere) and would recommend throwing it somewhere safe in case of fire (if recently out). Once or twice a year (when it is operating for the cold months and before operating in cold months), check the chimney. If not installed correctly, you will get a buildup of ash and soot, which could cause a fire. Also, be sure to follow local codes and regulations regarding the installation of the fireplace. At first I had mine to go directly to the wall, but that caused reflux and ash accumulate. I changed that to go out and up over my roof line, now no more reflux problems and ashes. If no appropriate cover at the end of the fireplace in summer birds may have found a good place to nest. If you have severe weather (lightning) unplug. It uses a small amount of electricity to run the auger and the automatic starter. There are two main differences in corn burner and a pellet burner. Auger cup design speed and burns. For all I know, be prepared to spend about $ 1500 to $ 3500 USD. This is for the stove and all accessories, not including pellets. I have a separate model Whitfield. It is smaller and has about two sacks of pellets in the waiting area. My house is about 770sq. Ft During colder weather (15F or less) that go through about 2 bags per day. During the time 15F to 30F is about to go through a bag of about one day. This is based off the thermostat to 75F. Hope this helps.
