Which Pellet Stove or Fireplace Insert is Right For You?

When purchasing a pellet appliance, it’s important to consider the size to get the desired heat along with the style and control to match the look of your house and the convenience you’re after.

Size

To determine how much heat you’ll need, it’s best to consult with a local Harman dealer. Too big a unit and you’ve spent more than what you needed and you’ll have too much heat for your room, making it uncomfortable. Too small and it won’t give you the heat you need.

Also consider the space, layout and insulation of your home. Your Harman dealer can help confirm the size that meets your heating needs. Here are some basics to get the right size of unit.

  • Square footage: Measure the space you’re going to heat (e.g., 1,200 sq. ft.)
  • Home insulation: The better your home is insulated, the less heat needed from your stove or insert
  • Fireplace opening for pellet inserts: Measure the length, width and height to see what size is best
  • Clearance to combustibles: Ask how far your unit should be from walls and combustible materials like furniture, and if you need floor protection
