NU-TEC Upland 207 - Update to review
It was a milder winter, but that said it was still below 20 or colder here most nights from Dec to Feb. I used less than 1/8th of a tank of fuel oil- so I think I may have paid for the stoves already since oil was around $4.00 a gallon here. I went through 9 tons of wood pellets paying no more that 217 a ton. The quality varied- The InstaHeat brand burned well, but Green Supreme was poor in comparison. This year I will find a better source. A local company has Dry Creek which they deliver and that is supposed to be good. I hauled all my own from the Tractor Supply store this year. We have never been this consistently warm. Most of the time the temperature in our house was in the mid 70's. I cleaned the stoves monthly and noticed the difference in creosote in the burn pot when I burned the Green Supreme. There was no other creosote deposits anywhere else in the stove. I saw a conversion chart and 1 ton = 120 gallons of oil. I normally kept my oil furnace on 60 and used a wood stove to take the chill out. Even at 60 I would go through a tank of oil every 4-5 weeks. This was a million times better! I had relatively few minor issues- a loose handle here and there- one auger motor electric connector came off one of the stoves. None of these took more than a few minutes to fix. Thanks for building and designing a great stove!!
