This is my second pellet stove I have owned. I am in a very cold climate – nights often below zero. I usually run it on level 1 or 2 during the day if it is in the 40s. On colder days I run it on 3 or 4. I’ve never turned it up to 5. I keep the temperature around 72. Overnight I turn it down to 1 and it keeps the house at 61-65 depending on how cold it is outside. This is my primary heat source for a 1500 sf 2 story house, and have a propane backup in case power goes out.
My previous stove was a Bixby. I loved my Bixby. It was a pain to clean, but I loved it. It was super efficient. However, the company stopped making stoves, the motherboard fried, and I have a cute little r2d2 stove on my back porch that does nothing. So, I needed a new stove. The one thing I hated about the Bixby was how hard it was to clean – removing bolts, backing boards… you basically had to disassemble the whole burning chamber to clean the thing – every other week. So, this review is in comparison to that.
Things I like:
It was easy to install. This girl did it by herself, from cutting the hole in the wall to installing the chimney pipe. It’s heavy as sin, but myself and my elderly mother managed to walk it onto the hearthpad without help from the big guys.
My comfortbilt is super easy to clean. I clean it usually everyday, but have gone 3 days without cleaning with no ill effects. Takes about 2 minutes, and it is all vacuuming. Open the door, vacuum, close the door. My 8 year old does it.
I specifically wanted a stove with a removable ashpan. The only problem with the ashpan is you can’t remove it while the fire is burning, which would have been helpful, but since I clean it everyday, not a big problem.
It heats up super fast.
The fan is so much quieter compared to my Bixby. I haven’t adjusted it at all, just using factory settings. It is about as loud as a rinnai propane heater fan – but so much hotter :)
Heat exchanger tubes easy to clean – They can be cleaned while stove is in use, so they always have really hot air on them.
The windows are beautiful. They don’t get black quickly.
Now for what I don’t like – they are the same complaints as everyone else.
Small pellet opening – could be an easy fix.
Pellets have to be pushed down because they get caught on the sides. I fill it up totally full at 3 in the afternoon, set it on level 1, and I don’t have to touch it until 9 in the morning. It is just starting to get to the place where not enough pellets are coming out. It holds just over a 40 pound bag of pellets.
It’s not quite as efficient as my Bixby – I’ve used 44 bags in 2.5 months – one was a cool October, but not super cold. It’s definitely cheaper running that my propane stove though. I figure it will pay for itself including all of the chimney piping in one heating season.
I would definitely recommend this stove. It has been reliable everyday so far. And it’s pretty.
