At this point it doesn't look good if I want to go for one of the top brands for pellet stoves . . . Harmons are pretty much non-existent until March 2009 and the Quadrafires aren't available for install until December . . . and while I am positive that I could do the install the insurance company states that any heating appliance needs to be installed by a professional -- no DIY. Leaning now towards woodstoves or a wood boiler perhaps . . . seems as though folks aren't as crazy when it comes to installing these (perhaps too much work or folks don't have as easy access to a woodlot.)
