The Drolet Eco 45 Freestanding Pellet Stove
The Drolet Eco 45 was the first in this line of Drolet pellet stoves, introduced in September 2006.
Slightly larger than the Eco 35, the Drolet Eco 45 can produce 45,000 btu. per hour, burn for 46 hours on the low heat setting, (107 hours with the optional hopper extension), and heat up to 2000 square feet.
A nice touch is the inclusion of filters for the convection blower to stop dust being blown around the house. (see comments below).
Features common to all Drolet pellet stoves are six heat settings, removable door handles, a built in easily accessible ash pan, an optional thermostat and a noise reduction button for the convection blowers.
