I too got my pellet stove from Rick Saturday. Mine was a used one he had refurbished with new motors, ie the hook up !
Set it up in what will be my living room once we get sheet rock up. For now its bare studs and insulation. We have run it wide open for a day and a half, its heating that room and the two large adjacent rooms. Last year I fed three plus cords of hardwood into my Vermont Castings defiant model. The pellet stove is a much better way to go in so much as its consistent heat and doesn't go out @ 5am. Feed it a bag of hardwood pellets and forget about it. Running it wide open for 24hrs it used a bag and a half of pellets which is about $7.50.

This is the model I got

I need to ask if anybody that's running a pellet stove and has a kill-a-watt meter if you could do a days test with the stove running. I ask as we are out fitting our cabin (on paper) which will be off grid, so looking for power consumption (wattage) in a 24hour period.

Thanks

Rick can probably advise. We were talking about how he has run his off an inverter and a 12v battery for an extended period of time.

Are they still half price? My dad has been heating the house for 7 years with 2 pellet stove inserts alone, 2800sq feet, good units.

Ya, there is no other heating system in my house, we do about 6.5-8 tons a year between the 2 stoves (3 floors 2800 sq feet), weather conditions and pellet quality determine how much is used. One of the stoves I know my dad was contemplating replacing, if they were half price I'm sure he would replace it.

What was the alternative? My PSE&G bill topped out around $175/month this Winter.

since October 19th we have used 217 therms (as of today) which equates to $87 in natural gas for the winter so far. We spent $800 in coal this year. Please keep in mind that my drier and hot water is also natural gas. I do understand that my savings is compounded by adding new Windows, insulation and other factors. Most people spend a few thousand to heat their houses each winter. My house also stays at a constant 72 upstairs and 66-68 downstairs.

my pellet stove is too warm for the room we have it in....weird - but yeah it cooked us out of the main floor and our house couldnt deal with taking that heat and moving it upstairs because of how it is designed...so a bummer really - but it is real nice on cold days to have the pellet fire going blasting heat.

My only wish with the wood stove is that the house had forced hot air heating system. I'd love to turn it to fan only setting and circulate the heat, because it pumps out heat.

I've also been trying out Envi blocks this winter. Basically giant pellets. Far less mess in the house (so the missus is happy) and three of them will last for 4-5 hours, reducing fire tending time.

This will depend on the stove. If it is ac powered type stove it will be a little high. There are a couple of dc stoves out there and they can run for upwards of 45 hours on a deep cycle battery...and wont tax a solar system at all. I have a 120 watt set up and it seems to handle the dc stove just fine.

We have a place just north of Richmond that makes there....Liberty Bricks. They are great for a fireplace/stove.....and the way they are packed they are awesome for overlanding....along with some gel starter! Nice part is you can transport across state lines with no worries being they are processed wood product.
