enerzone small
Eurostar shown with creme side panels and black door trim.

A compact heating machine, the Eurostar from Enerzone can heat up to 2400 sq. feet and maxes out at 50,000 BTU’s.  The Eurostar features a modern/ contemporary look that, instead of being a sharp geometric cube, is softened by rounded edges and corners.  The unit’s appearance can be customized with the choice of colored side panels (red, creme, or black) as well as the choice of door trim (brushed nickel, or cast iron black).

The Eurostar features a user friendly LCD control panel that slides from behind the unit to the side and allows the consumer to control how their unit will run.  This panel also has a diagnostic tool for troubleshooting minor issues.

Maintenance of the unit is quick and easy with simple to remove panels that allow consumers to vacuum out any ash build-up that may be present.  The ample ash pan is large without being cumbersome to empty and is easy to access.  The Eurostar has a 70lb. hopper making trips with bags of pellets less frequent.

 

EPA certified and qualifying for a $300 Bio-Fuel Tax credit, this unit is easy on the wallet, the eyes, and the environment.

Through the month of August consumers can take $250 off of the retail price on a Eurostar or a Euromax pellet stove.

Reviews: Harman P43 Pellet Stove

The Harman P43 Pellet stove continues to be a popular appliance with AES AES Heath and Patio customers who are looking for a cost effective way to heat about 1400 square feet.   If you own a Harman P43 yourself, here’s your chance to help other folks out who are looking to purchase a new stove.  How long have you owned the stove?  Would you buy it again?  Have you recommended it to friends?  Do you think it lives up to Harman’s claims?

Here’s what Harman has to say about the product.  Write a comment and let us know what you think and help others make a good decision.  Thanks!

The P43 Advantage

The P43 will burn any grade of pellet at maximum efficiency and still keep your home at your desired temperature. Not only can the P43 burn pellets with optimal efficiency and cleanliness, it does it automatically. The P43 automatically lights its own fire and burns at the correct output to maintain the desired room temperature. When no heat is required, the P43 will shut-down and reignite when the demand for heat returns. Just fill the hopper with pellets and set the desired temperature. The P43 will do the rest except for ash removal, which will be needed after approximately one ton of pellets has been consumed.

The Smartest Pellet Stove
The P43’s huge output is managed by a microprocessor that senses the room temperature and the fire temperature with tiny thermistor probes and then determines the best feed rate. This improved and smarter control also has a diagnostic port for connecting an external display showing live working data for easier installation. The platinum combination is Harman’s Patented Feeder and Burn Pot and ESP Control, which have been developed to their highest state. These features work together to allow amazing heat output with different fuel quality, ash content, and moisture. In other words, it improves performance, efficiency, and conserves fuel. From the quality of the newly designed door handle, to the laser-cut and etched details on the accessories, the P43is in a class all its own.

Keeping Safety in Mind
The P43 has several safety features that automatically monitor changes in the stove’s temperature and draft. The P43 cannot overheat. The ESP Probe, which controls the exhaust temperature, will shut the feed motor down if the temperature reaches a predetermined high limit temperature in the exhaust. Another safety feature is the pressure switch, which senses a loss of draft (door left open, blocked flue, etc). If this occurs, it will also automatically quit feeding pellets and shut the unit down.

Reviews: Harman P68 Pellet Stove

The Harman P68 Pellet stove is a popular item among customers at AES AES Heath and Patio.  We happen to think its a great product, but we want to share actual reviews from our customers who use it everyday.  If you own a Harman P68 let us know what you think.  Do you recommend it?  Do you think it lives up to the manufacturer’s claims?

Here’s what Harman has to say about the P68.  Add a comment and tell us how it performs for you.  Thanks!

The Harman P68 Pellet Stove will burn any grade of pellet at maximum efficiency. Wood pellets have become a popular form of heat because they are environmentally friendly, extremely clean burning and cost effective. This means you can purchase the lower quality pellets and still keep your home at your desired temperature.

The P68 automatically lights its own fire and burns at the correct output to maintain the desired room temperature. When no heat is required, the P68 will shutdown and re-ignite when the demand for heat returns.

Just fill the hopper with pellets and set the desired temperature. The P68 will do the rest except for ash removal, which will be needed after approximately one ton of pellets has been consumed.

From the quality of the newly designed door handle, to the laser-cut and etched details on the accessories, the P68 is in a class all its own.

The P68 incorporates the Harman ESP Probe, which controls the exhaust temperature. The ESP Probe will shut down the feed motor if the temperature reaches a predetermined high limit temperature in the exhaust. A pressure switch will sense a loss of draft (from a door left open or a blocked flue) and automatically stop feeding pellets and shut down the P68.

How to remove soot and ash from Your Fireplace

It’s Time to Say So Long to Soot!
If your fireplace is sending smoke signals that it needs a scrub, here’s the quickest way to get it done — without putting a damper on your day

By Carolyn Forte

Biggest Fireplace-Cleaning Challenges
1. A pile of old ashes in the firebox

2. Black soot on the glass

3. Smoky stains on the surrounding brick, marble, or tile

Fastest Fireplace-Cleaning Fixes
1. Trash the ash. A wet/dry vacuum with a disposable bag will handle the job, once the pile has cooled for at least four days. But if you don’t have one of those heavy-duty suckers — or just don’t feel like hauling it out — do this instead: After the ash is completely cold, sprinkle it with damp tea leaves or coffee grounds to cover the stale smell and keep down dust (so you don’t inhale it). Then scoop the pile with a fireplace shovel (don’t worry if you can’t get it all — leaving an inch or two behind is fine), and dump it into a metal can, bucket, or even an old stockpot or clay flowerpot. Discard the mess outside, ideally in a metal trash container, but definitely away from your house.
2. Clear things up. To remove light soot or a cloudy film from glass doors, mix a solution of equal parts white vinegar and warm water and pour into a spray bottle. Spritz a bit on a paper towel and dip it into the fireplace ashes to use as a gentle abrasive (smart, right?). To finish, spray glass and wipe clean with a microfiber cloth. If soldered-on gunk won’t budge (and if you really care), scrape it away with a razor blade.
3. Brush it off. If you have smoke stains on your fireplace facing, begin by squirting them with water — it’ll keep the cleaning solution from soaking in too fast (this is particularly important with brick). Then dip a brush in a solution of 1/4 cup all-purpose cleaner to 1 gallon water; give spots a quick scrub; rinse with a clean sponge; let dry. For marble or other stones, squirt with water, then go over with a soft cloth dipped in mild dishwashing liquid and water. Rinse and wipe dry. One exception: If brick facing is more than 50 years old, it may crumble if you scrub with a cleaner. Just vacuum the surface with your soft-brush attachment.

Chimney Cleanup Made Easy
•    Pick up the tools. Buy a dust mask, a metal bucket with a lid to contain ashes, and a commercial cleaner designed to remove soot and smoke stains from brick, stone, and glass (all products available at AES AES Heath and Patio or local hardware stores or home centers).
•    Also consider this: Schedule an annual chimney checkup with a professional sweep certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (csia.org).
