Can I leave a pellet stove running 24/7?
Hi, I am completely new to heating with wood and I just installed a Quadra Fire Castille pellet stove and am wondering how safe it is to leave it running when I am not home?? I have heard there is very little danger of fire (outside of the firebox of course) but am nervous to leave a fire unattended and wondered if any other pellet users do this?
It seems like a hassle and not very effective to turn it off when I leave and have to restart when I come back home. I notice that the wall the stove is venting out of is warm but not hot. It does have a wall shield around the pipe. The stove is direct vented out a side wall and seems to have no problems with draw etc.
