The Enviro Empress pellet stove used to be known as the Enviro Windsor, but has been upgraded internally.It's a cast iron stove that appears more like a woodburner than a pellet stove. 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.
This stove is available in eight different attractive colours, making it possible to enhance almost any interior design.
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.
For even more peaceful operation the exhaust and combustion fan can be moved outside the building.
