This pretty, traditional looking stove isn't fussy about its food. Fuel it up with pellets, corn, wheat, switchgrass pellets or sunflower seeds and it will throw off 52,500 BTUs per hour. That's enough to heat a 3,000 square foot house.
A lot of technology is packed into its cast-iron body, making for fairly fuss-free operation.
The hopper holds 80 pounds of fuel and a 7-day programmable thermostat allows for custom settings. The stove also has five manual heat settings.
Select the fuel type on the back-lit, wall-mounted control and the stove will do the rest. And it will do it quietly. The stove's fans are as quiet as you'll find among available stoves, says the manufacturer.
Pellet stoves require electricity to operate which means when that you loose power so do they. But the Mt. Vernon will automatically switch over to 12-volt battery backup allowing you to stay warm.
Other standard features include a self-cleaning firepot and built-in diagnostics.
Options include a two-piece ceramic log set, firescreen, cast iron warming shelves, outside air kit and six-foot 12-volt power cord.
