If I purchase this Drolet Eco-65 high efficiency EPA pellet stove, do you also offer any mantles for it?
By Brennan W. on October 1, 2015
Answer:Unfortunately, due to the required clearances for pellet stoves, there are no mantels available for them. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Can the Drolet Eco-65 burn corn?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 8, 2013
Unfortunately, this unit can only burn bark and grass pellets. The closest unit we have in heating capacity that can burn other types of biomass is the US Stove Pedestal Corn and Pellet Burning Stove
. I apologize that we do not have any other items that are as large as the unit that you are viewing now.

We have a wood stove furnace that is hooked up to our propane furnace (propane off) when wood is running so we have all the duct work from the stove to the furnace through out the house. Is there a way to use this unit in place of our wood stove and have the same results?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 4, 2014
Answer:Unfortunately, this stove does not have the ability to be tied into an existing force air furnace. It is designed to provide supplemental heat, but does so by forcing heated air directly from the louvered outlets on the face of the unit. We do not currently offer a pellet burning stove that can be configured in this way.

Can the ECO 65 be added onto an existing hot air trunk line? How many CFM is the blower? Will the ECO 65 burn corn also?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 8, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, this unit is a free standing model only and cannot be tied into an existing forced air system. This model comes equipped with a 465 CFM convection air blower. While this model can burn many types of wood pellet, it is not able to burn corn.

Can the Drolet Eco 65 pellet stove be installed through vinyl siding with a power vent, or does it require a chimney to be installed?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 11, 2013
Answer:This unit can be vented horizontally, through an outside wall, then directed vertically for a short run. A power vent fan is not necessary, as the unit has its own built in positive pressure combustion fan.

Can the combustion air be adjusted, and if so, how? My glass is always scooted up and the burner box becomes over full.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 23, 2012
Answer:The only adjustment for combustion air for this stove is via the sliding damper control on the right rear of the stove, as you face the unit. Please ensure that the damper control is in the open position when burning the unit.
Also, you may check to make sure that there are no obstructions in the intake air pipe. If the sooting issues continue, you will likely need to check the stove for any internal air blockages that can result from built up ash.

Is this able to hook up to a hot water tank?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 30, 2013
Answer:My apologizes, but this model of pellet stove does not have provisions to be used with a hot water kit. It is only designed for forced air heating.

Does this stove absolutely have to be hooked up to outside air for combustion?
By Chris C. on October 14, 2014
Answer:Only if the appliance is to be installed in a mobile home is it required to be connected to an outside source for combustion air. I would also check local code requirements regarding the same for your installation. Regardless, connection to an outside air supply is recommended to help increase the overall efficiency of the appliance.
