            Features

            One of the most noteworthy features of the Castle 12327 Serenity Wood Pellet Stove is the fuel feed system. This stove uses a vertical auger feed system, which is controlled by a digital control board. The board, which is in turn controlled by a microprocessor, allows the system to run in a non-continuous, timer based cycle. The cycling consequently allows the stove’s auger to run over a predetermined amount of time.

            Completing the heat distribution process is the motor or draft fan, responsible for evenly distributing heat into the room. The blower helps prevent situations where the area adjacent to the stove is uncomfortably hot, while other parts of the home are extremely cold. However, the blower can create fire hazards, which makes it necessary to install and maintain the combustion system correctly. Be sure to always keep the door closed with its seals properly maintained when running the stove.

            The stove’s thermostat is another great feature that allows the stove to operate in an automatic mode. All you need to do is set the desired room temperature. With that, the stove will increase or decrease its heat output to meet the set room temperature. In addition to the thermostat mode, this stove allows you to use a weekly mode. With this mode, you can schedule the stove to turn on during set times and days of the week. It is important to note that you can only set your stove to use weekly mode before running it. If you try setting while running in thermostat or manual modes, the weekly mode will not set in–you must wait until the stove is turned off and cooled down.

            Design

            The Castle 12327 Serenity Wood Pellet Stove is not only impressive in the features but also in its design. This beautiful stove is designed to offer great functionality while serving as a priceless centerpiece for the Castle 12327 Serenity Wood Pellet Stovehome. Unlike other stoves that route hot gases to exchange heat, the Castle 12327 operates in the absence of the maze of metal. While the technique may be good at exchanging heat, it is terrible for effective cleaning of your stove. It is for this reason that Castle 12327 Serenity makes it easy for you to run the stove. You just need to cool the stove and dump the ash pan and fire pot, dust interior panels and sweep the exhaust pipe, and the stove will be clean. This is not to mention the smooth interior texture that makes it easy to clean.

            This stove is designed to use different types of pellets. Though premium grade pellets are preferred for their high heat production, standard pellets can also be used. This is possible as this stove allows you to adjust the exhaust voltage. With the ability to control the combustion motor, you can compensate for inadequate ventilation, thus increasing the exhaust speed. This gives improved air circulation.

            Having a blower in the stove is another plus to its design. This comes with numerous advantages, given that this is no ordinary blower. With this stove, you can actually control the blower’s voltage, allowing you to regulate the amount of heat distributed by turning the blower’s power level up or down.

            Efficiency

While other stoves are blowing your heat outside, the Castle 12327 keeps all the heat indoors, maximizing the warmth of your home. The only reason why its efficiency goes down is the use of standard pellets. Though the stove has the technology to cater for the pellets, the fact that these pellets are less efficient cannot be ignored.
