A non-electric pellet stove. Gravity fed and requires little space. I am working with the manufacturer to add a water heat exchanger to operate a hydronic heating system for the AP fish tanks. We just became a distributor and dealer for our region. Very Exciting! Will reduce heating costs substantially.

It puts out about 57,000 BTUs on high.  So it depends on how thermal efficient your greenhouse is and if you are just heating the air or heating a thermal mass including your water.  It also depends upon your climate and what you wish to grow as to how much heat you need.  I hope that helps some.

I was wondering how big of a greenhouse this could heat or how many btus it gives off?

Hi Tony,

Updates on the stove.... Well, it is EPA and UL listed, it should be on Sylvia's site now, we had it at the AP Conference this weekend and had a great response and a good deal of interest.  Do you have any specific questions about the stove?  I do have quite a bit of info concerning the stove and its accessories on my website as well.

Any new updates on this stove

The stove heats the greenhouse, house, shop etc.  But they have a heat exchanger that attaches to the back of the stove that heats water. To control the temp it would be a thermostat that would control the water circulating through the beds by turning on or off the circulating pump.  I will let you know on the shipping.

So the heat exchanger for water - it heats up the water?  I have a pellet stove for my home (electric) and it heats the whole house in the winter, so if it heats up the water (for the fish, beds etc.) how do you keep temp from getting too warm or do you cycle it as needed? My zip is 20169 what would be shipping?  Thanks

There are no dealers on the East coast yet, but we can ship anywhere!  Manufacturer just made me aware of a price increase soon as well. List price will be $1,495.00 for the stove soon. I can still offer them at $1,295.00 but soon to change.  The heat exchanger for water is an additional $250

I love this is there someone who sells them on the East coast?

This is exciting stuff!

I am going to try it in my 12x15 greenhouse soon. I will then be able to give a better recommendation.  The manufacturer told me they have been installed in houses up to 2,000 sq ft in our area and climate and it was the only source of heat.  My greenhouse is a little under 200 sq ft, but obviously much less well insulated than a house would be.
