First switching from oil to pellets was a great move! Paying less than half of what it costs to heat my house and the house is significantly warmer (ok, sometimes TOO warm).People should realize before buying a pellet stove that they what they are getting is a semi-automated system, like a wood-stove, you still need to give the appliance attention several times a day and monitor it, very much like you do a wood-stove.I have two frustrations, the hopper holds 60 pounds of pellets, but because of it's design the auger runs dry after 40 pounds, a full 20 pounds stays on the sides. An updated module might include small vibrators on the hopper to knock the pellets down.The second frustration is when the safety system does kick in (and it will for a variety of reasons, back to needing to monitor your stove), it will error out, but I wish it would run the draft fan for 10-15 minutes. I realize you setup your stack for natural draft, but that does not prevent the smoke from still escaping the unit and smoking up the area - A simple programming change would eliminate that little problem.Overall, very pleased with the product, no technical issues encountered and the staff of the customer support line have been very helpful and polite.
