    They work....

    Small amount of ash compared to the amount of fuel put in. As long as you like that dry kind of heat, and lots of it in that room. It's a wonderful thing.

    I make and play with fire all day. The last thing I want to do when I get home is make more of it. I'll stick with my automatic equipment. It work for me anyway. Chris

    One nice thing

    is they can squeeze a lot of different types of pellets. Plenty of waste material could be turned into fuel. Paper, sawdust, ag by products. I suppose even "blends". Corn and stoker coal runs in some brands I have seen, also.

    I have noticed as pellet stoves become more common around here the price of pellets has gone up considerably. It's really not a lot less than LP if you crank the numbers regarding efficiency, etc.

    Several of my neighbors have pellet stoves installed in their living rooms. They like the control-ability compared to wood stoves. They like them for shoulder season heat instead of firing the central HVAC systems.

    Need to keep the pellets dry, also or they tend to dam up in the feeders, they tell me.

    I think they need both the pellet feed and some sort of vibration mechanism to keep the flow.

    Be curious to know more about the emissions with various pellets. Not all solid fuel burning equipment fits well with the down wind neighbors.

    At the recent AHR show www.profab.org had some large 750K up to 2.5M units on display.
