5. I am curious
Edited on Wed Nov-16-05 02:04 PM by Malva Zebrina
that stove appears to need no flu. Is the idea that you feed it those pellets that are next to it? Looks like it. What is the cost of the stove and the pellets? How long do they last? I am interested because we have a wood stove that we seldom use for heat, as it cuts off the furnace in our rather primitive dirt floor cellar and then the pipes freeze. We keep it in case of power outage, but have used a kerosene heater most times in that case.

on edit

LOL, I see my questions have already been answered.
