* Update 1: it's January 5, 2016 and I am still loving it. I keep it working and heating in tip-top shape by following the scheduled maintenance in the owners manual. I wanted to test out what would happen if I didn't do the upkeep. The few times I skipped some cleaning including delaying the monthly cleaning I noticed a difference of a lower burn/heat performance. So, I recommend to follow and keep up with the recommend upkeep of the stove and all will be well. :)
* Update 2: it's February 15, 2016 going through the "Cold Blast" Valentines Day weekend 3 degrees Fahrenheit during the day plus gusty winds and 18 below zero Fahrenheit to the -20's at night and this pellet stove is heating like a champ keeping large uninsulated place at 68F, consuming around 1 1/2 bags to 2 bags in 24 hours. Warm and happy.
I comparison shopped pellet stoves for weeks and found that purchasing the Pleasant Hearth Cabinet style with the 120 pound hopper and 50,000 BTU's (heating up to 2,200 sq ft) via Amazon was the best value. Counting the shipping that was included in the total price (yes!)- it costs less on Amazon than at Home Depot and Tractor Supply Store.
1. Huge hopper: 120 pounds of pellets. It will hold 3 40-pound bags of pellets.
2. Heat: 50,000BTU. It will heat up to 2,200 sq ft. and it has the stove heat blower included.
3. Size: Compact Cabinet. It looks sleek one piece no “legs” showing for a more contemporary look.
4. Price: Great value for all three features above and the current price point on Amazon.
5. Delivery: Very easy to schedule, it was delivered on time on a boxed pallet and was slowly wheeled into the house to the desired stove
location (perhaps have an able body or two available to help the delivery person if there are stairs involved). * The stove is screwed into the pallet from the bottom of the unit using the screw holes for mobile home installation.
6. Installation was easy- not many pieces for the stove itself. More thought and effort went into the stove exhaust- it's location and height to create a proper draft. (I purchased the Dura Vent Pellet/MultiFuel exhaust kit)
7. Use Premium Quality Pellets- hard shiny pellets no bigger than 1 ¼ inch, the less dust the better. With all of my research about pellets I have learned the key is * Don’t feed cheapo wood pellets to your stove if you want it to perform well.*
8. I highly recommend this Pellet stove! I will update if anything goes wrong or if it does not have what it takes this winter, but so far I am happy and warm.
This is my first pellet stove purchase (although my family had 2 multifuel stoves when I was a kid) and I am very happy with it. I will be using it all winter and I will provide updates as needed. I have used it for a week so far and I am completely satisfied with my purchase.
I know it is a bit early to review, but the cold season is coming and if you are in the market for a pellet stove that heats more than 2,000 sq ft for under $2,000- consider this Pleasant Hearth Cabinet style or,
PelPro PP130 has a 130 pound hopper, up to 50,000 BTUs, and heats up to 2,200 sqft or,
Vogelzang Large Hopper Pellet Stove that has 120 lb. hopper, provides up to 65000 BTUs and heats up to 2800 cu. ft.
I realized there are few more things needed beyond this pellet stove purchase to get the stove up and running.
It needs an exhaust kit – the style depends on how and where you will exhaust your stove (through the wall, through a chimney, through the roof, etc). The pellet stove comes with an outside air intake kit but that is different from the exhaust piping that the pellet stove needs to work.
For my purpose of exhausting through the wall, I purchased the Dura Vent 3 inch diameter exhaust kit for $199.99 at Tractor Supply Store. It can be also be purchased at Home Depot for $197.00 This 3 inch diameter pellet stove exhaust kit comes with everything needed it is easy to install and put together. Although the Dura Vent exhaust says multi-fuel, can’t burn corn with this exhaust pipe, but for pellets it is approved. Also because of my stove location and desired vent height, I bought additional 36 inch stove piping from the Tractor Supply Company store that was $34.99. Extra piping in 12 inch or 36 inch lengths and more are also readily available at hardware stores that sell pellet stoves.
I used high temperature RTV Permatex 81160 High-Temp Red RTV Silicone Gasket, 3 oz. for sealing the T-pipe to the stove. I let it set 24 hours (till next day in the evening) before using.
* To prevent smoke leaking from punctures, I did not screw or drill anything into or through the Duravent 3 inch dia. double lined exhaust pipe. I only used the RTV sealant at one end of the exhaust pipe to secure the T pipe section to the stove outlet.
Also on the first use, use it on MAX for a good 2 or few hours and ventilate-ventilate-ventilate with a fan even, because the paint will cure at this time. You will see fumes and smell odors gassing off as the stove paint cures. After the second use I notice no bad odor from the stove appliance. ( I have a sensitive nose).
Outside Air Intake…. Neither the Pleasant Hearth instruction manual nor the Duravent stated the important need for this other than an outside fresh air intake must be installed for mobile homes. Besides the need to prevent creating negative air pressure in your home and having stale stuffy air, I think that the outside fresh air intake is important in any dwelling because it will improve the efficiency of the combustion in the stove. A better efficient burn equals better heat and that equals savings on the cost of pellets.
I needed more tubing than what was provided with my Pleasant Hearth stove fresh air intake kit. The stove has an opening for a 2 inch diameter aluminum flexible hose. I could not find similar 2” tubing at any hardware or stove store. I could only find additional fresh air intake kits for $50-$75.
Finally, I found the 2 inch diameter flexible aluminum tubing at McMaster- product number 5400K1 (for anyone interested). I purchased the entire length needed rather than trying to join an extension to the 40-50 inch tube provided.
As I mentioned before, Amazon includes the freight shipping INSIDE your house to the location you want your stove. That was a wonderful surprise as I was expecting freight delivery to the door only. It arrived on the day I selected during check out and it arrived in perfect condition. For the ease of maneuvering this 235 pound w/box+pallet stove (180 pounds stove only), at the delivery guy's suggestion, we unboxed the stove but left it on the pallet, then it was wheeled and guided into and through the house (we also removed the parts that were in plastic bags inside the cabinet). It was still bulky but not as much. The delivery person was very conscientious not to damage my house or the pellet stove.
*It’s good practice to make sure you open the box and check the stove for dents, cracks, and breaks before you sign that you got the delivery (implied in good condition) and the delivery guy leaves.
The temperature and control knob is very basic turn from Off to Min to Max and notches in between. It works well, but the power on and power off cycle once started has to complete itself before any other knob turning will work. The power up/power off cycle takes a few minutes with blowers running. If you want to quick reset on a cold stove pulling the power plug and waiting 15 seconds always works, but not recommended for hot stoves. To start it up turn the dial from off to MAX twice leaving it on MAX to power up, once powered up and burning well with blowers on then I adjust the dial to my desired temperature location. It is very automatic once the pellets are in the hopper and the stove is on. The auger feeder drops pellets every so often (reminds me of a slot machine or gumball machine for some reason, lol) to keep the fire going at the setting you select. The blowers sound like a window A/C on low or medium or a desk fan on medium. It is not bothersome; awareness of it fades after a few hours. I check the hopper whenever I pass by the stove to push the pellets closer to auger so it can run as long as possible before I have to refill. On the Minimum constant feed option of the dial, my stove takes about ½ bag (20 pounds per 10 hours).
Cleaning is very easy. I purchased the Ash vacuum. I shut down the stove before I head out for the day, when I return the ashes are cold. I vac it up... no mess no fuss. Hand cleaning the fire pot is easy particularly when you do it often and use high quality pellets. it's like cleaning out a coffee filter. The Ash SmithPowerSmith PAVC101 10 Amp Ash Vacuum vacuum is able to handle warm to cold ashes- it has a special filter, nozzle and a metal drum making it easy to empty out the cold ashes into compost bin or metal trash can.
I have spray glass cleaner to clean the glass when it gets cloudy/sooty Spray Nine 15022 Fireplace Cleaner, 22 oz. I use it daily on the glass, after vacuuming out the fire pot and ashes. I like to see the flames to judge the stoves burning quality white to yellow fast flame (a good burn) vs. orange lazy slow flame. If it is lazy orange flames- it may need more fresh air (turn the little blue dial +1 +2) or time for the monthly/25 bag cleaning procedure.
I am currently using 1/2 bag at night on Min in large un-insulated place. For very cold weather I guesstimate about a bag or 2 day and calculate how many days of I will burn. It may be less or more.
Pellet Prices in Northern New England (North of the Notches):
Premium Bags of pellets in Northern NE cost about $5-6. Discounts are available for pallets/tons.
Local Tractor Supply Company store $250-$260/ton, they sell private label Tractor Supply Brand. I purchased a few bags $5.40ish each and it has burned well, hot, hard shiny pellets, different sizes but none too long, no clinkers in ash pot and not much ash to vacuum. I am happy with TSC brand, but I know I have to do more comparisons.
My Local Ace Hardware:
Oakanagan Premium Softwood $299/ton or 60 bags a pallet/$358
Logik-e Premium Hardwood $289/ton or 55bags pallet/$317.90
LG Premium Softwood $279/ton/50 bags pallet $279 or 75bags/pallet $418.50
I have read a lot about Pellet quality… this will make or break your stove (literally and figuratively).
Look for shiny hard pellets that smell like fresh wood/sawdust. If the pellets are too long (longer than 1.25-1.50 inches) it may jam the auger/feeder. You can drop the bag a sealed bag a few times to attempt to break up the pellets or just get another pellet brand. If your pellets smell bad then there are other additives to the pellets. It is not good to burn pellets loaded with additives. Softwood burns hot and quick and hard wood burns slow but not so hot. A pellet that is low ash mixture of soft and hardwood is good but it depends on your preference. There are plenty of wood pellets review sites, if you are interested to learn more.
A wise old mountain man, who has survived wicked Northern New England winters, by burning wood pellets alone since 2002, gave me his advice: Pellets from Canada are the best and highest ranking since Canada has pellet standards that are mandated for quality assurance. More stringent than the Pellet Fuels Institute which gives "premium" standard label to many pellets undeserving of the title. If you cannot get Canadian Pellets, pellets made in New York are a great option. The old-timer pellet stove user warned me to avoid pellets from Maine. Nothing wrong with Maine- just pellets from Maine are a headache.
So there you have it- his opinion on pellets and my opinion on the Pleasant Hearth Cabinet Stove. I happily recommend this.
