True, but what about the cleaning issue. I have an old two story home, with an 8" SS liner inside the chimney and a cap on top. I am told that each year, ash in it will have to be brushed out. Most chimney sweeps charge about $100. (No, I am not going to climb up there) I figure I can brush out a PV or DV by myself, like I do with the pellet pipe. I was thinking of getting the Alaska 140 Auger, unless someone can talk me out of it.coaledsweat wrote:Chimney's don't quit when the power goes out either.
Are you telling me that the fan on a PV or DV consumes more power and is more costly, than the exhaust blower on a wood pellet stove? Isn't it basically the same principle? Can someone tell me how many amps their PV or DV uses?Leisure Line wrote:If you electric bill goes up $8.00-$12.00 a month for 7 months, how much did you save on the chimney sweep.
