pellet stove installation update

I have made it through two Winters so far the coldest dropping two 8 degrees. The stove easily maintains a 72 degrees. The first winner used 3 tons of pellets. And that was maintaining a very comfortable living environment. No need to sleep under the covers with one of these. The only issue was the kitchen sink water supply freezing in 20 degree temperatures due to lack of sub floor heating. I did add a second digital readout carbon monoxide detector to my unit just to be on the safe side but have not had any issues. I will attach some pictures.
Stay warm this winter.
Dan

Nice job ~~~


3 ton of pellets plays hell with the payload rating when moving... you can tell I'm old as I'll use the ELECTRIC FP and propane furnace before feeding anything 3 tons of anything. Doubt I've fed my wife that much weight in the 47 years we have been married and only need to bring it home a few pounds at a time.

A few more groceries and my wife would take care of that ~~ at least 'til spring then slim her down again so not too warm shoulder to shoulder or bum to bum...

Me too - I'll keep my heated tile floors and electric fireplace

Still, nice mod!
