Drolet pellet stoves are a part of Stove Builder International which is a family owned Canadian business operating from Quebec.In business since 1875, Drolet have acquired a deserved reputation for high quality engineered products which have in the past included elevators, municipal waterworks, street fountains and advanced efficiency wood stoves. Drolet came into the field of pellet stoves quite late. The first of this line of Drolet stoves, the Eco 45 was produced in 2006, followed in 2007 by the Eco 35 and then the Eco 65 in 2010. This late entry, combined with their experience in efficient wood burning stoves, gave Drolet the chance to learn from the best of other pellet stove manufacturers. Features common to all these 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.
This is a neat little pedestal type pellet stove producing 35,000 btu/hr and capable of burning for 27 hours on the low heat setting, ( or 88 hours with the hopper extension).
Slightly larger than the Eco 35, it 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.
This is a very powerful stove, capable of producing 65,000 btu/hr and burning for 92 hours on the low heat setting. One of the options is a ducting plenum kit to allow the stove to be connected to internal ducting.
