The Enviro Empress pellet stove is derived from the Empress freestanding pellet stove, but there are a number of important differences.A more efficient cast iron heat exchanger has been included to save space.
It's a cast iron pellet fireplace that appears more like a traditional fire. The cast iron doors open revealing a large viewing window to further enhance this look. Inside is a set of cast iron brick effect liners. The cast iron surround has an attractive arch design.
This insert is available in three colours; 2 Porcelain Enamel - Diamond Black and Antique Chestnut. Also available in a matte black painted finish.
The auger mounting has been improved for both rigidity and quiet operation by adding both top and bottom bearings.
The convection fan is variable speed and quiet running.
The hopper size is adjustable to fit smaller fireplace openings.
Advanced glass air wash system to keep the glass cleaner.
The surround clips on and off to give easy access for maintenance.
The Enviro Empress is thermostat ready and compatible with remote control.
