The ECO-65 is a high efficiency pellet stove. This model is EPA certified and allows for an effective heat transfer to other rooms with the installation of its optional heat distribution kit. Its bottom-feed burner and ultra-powerful blower make it a safe bet in the Large pellet stoves category. This appliance is equipped with a heat exchanger designed to provide air flow with minimum turbulence resulting in a reduction of noise.

Last year I started looking into pellet stoves, I found a Drolet ECO-65 was available with a plenum kit. This really fascinated me as I was choosing to put it in the basement. We have 2 bedrooms on the east side of the house and 1 bedroom on the west side of the house. My plan was to feed 1 plenum pipe to the middle of the 2 east bedrooms and the longer plenum pipe to the west bedroom. Once I had the stove installed and functioning I was totally in love with the idea and heat. I think at the end of the year last year we burned about 1 ton of pellets. It is super easy to load and any one of us can do it. My sons are 12 and 17.
It did not take long to see the issue of the last person leaving would forget to turn the stove off and during the day the temp would be 76 when I returned home or they would turn it off and I would come home to a 65 degree house as I have the geothermal system set on 65.
I then started exploring a wifi thermostat possibilities. Right off I saw where Honeywell does not make a more than .5 or 1 degree sweep thermostat. I saw where the starting and stopping of the pellet stove would take time and a 2 degree sweep was needed. I chose the Radio Thermostat CT50 with wifi module and a programmable 2 degree sweep.
Connecting the thermostat was super easy, it needs a 24volt AC transformer introduced for the C wire. This is used to power the thermostat. All this means is, one of the output leads of the transformer goes to C and the other goes to R, the other 2 terminals on the Drolet act as a millivolt gas valve, 1 lead goes to W and the other lead goes to RH. Leave the jumper between R and RH in place on the thermostat.
The operation of the thermostat was awesome as now I had the pellet stove coming on and off based on room temperature. I had the 2 degree swing working and seemed happy. After a bit, of watching the operation and seeing the unit shutdown and start backup, I found the Drolet ECO-65 has a pilot on mode, when the thermostat is not calling for heat the unit goes to the lowest setting and remains burning a fire. This allows the thermostat to call for more heat almost instantaneous, allowing me to drop the swing back down to 1 degree.
The Radio thermostat CT50 allows the user to run reports of when heat was called for. I originally had the pellet stove on setting three but found setting 4 and 5 seem to work better. 30 minutes before my alarm clock goes off is plenty of time to allow the pellet stove to raise the temperature from 66 to 69.
Inclosing the Drolet ECO-65 does not require a 2 degree sweep thermostat, I do believe a Honeywell thermostat would work if it could control a millivolt gas valve heater. I am very happy with the Drolet Pellet Stove.
