Popular options available for Ashley pellet stoves include the Ashley APC1406 Multi-Fuel Stove and the AP5660 Ashley Bay Front Pellet Stove. Factors to consider when choosing a pellet stove for a home include size, cost and heat output range.
The Ashley APC1406 Multi-Fuel Stove features a digital control board complete with LED readouts and built-in diagnostics to make it easier to spot problems. This is a large hopper capacity model that can use non-premium fuels. The new technology in its fuel feed system also eliminates burn back.
The AP5660 Ashley Bay Front Pellet Stove makes it easy to adjust heat with its six heat settings. The large door features a bay window style, contributing to the pleasant appearance and design of the appliance. This model has EPA certification and some desirable additional features such as auto ignition and an integrated damper control.
The main factor to consider when sizing a pellet stove is the heat output. Consumers should consider the physical size of the unit when they have limited space. Pellet stoves typically require electricity to run, with some models offering a battery back-up. Bottom-fed models burn existing clinkers and ash, and therefore do not require the use of premium fuel.
