Going in the Moring to look at A Harman stove. If I get it will be the 4th one we've owned, had 2 in the NJ house which heated the whole place an one in the flip house we just sold up here.

Their built like a tank and just run, the only issue i ever had was blown control board after a lighting strike in 18 years of running them.  

 

Our Quadrafire was (is) like that. Installed in 1992, still running strong today. I hope our new Quad is as good.

The XP was the most fun sled ever made - but I liked my XR more. The 850 takes it to a whole different level.

I’m not trying to criticize but I just did a fuel cost comparison on coalpail.com and it looks like heating with wood pellets is more expensive than natural gas or propane and several time higher than geothermal. Even if your getting pellets for $200 a ton.


If natural gas was an option I would be all over it. If we’re looking at the same comparison table propane is about 1.5x the cost of pellets. And with the cost for a geothermal system it would take years to recoup the savings, however I have been considering trying one of the ductless mini split units for my garage. It’s about 1200sq feet (half size of house) so if that performed well I would definitely consider it. House was all electric baseboard when I bought it, not a fan... Also added a Carolina wood burning fireplace insert years ago that performs very well. Three heating options that range from free to hold onto your wallet.. Not for everyone but it works one way or another.
