There are two models of the Whitfield Profile pellet stove, the '20 and the '30', both very similar. The larger stove has a greater hopper size, heat capacity and burn time.These stoves can be attached to a wall thermostat, and will shut down and re-ignite as needed to keep your required temperature. As a safety feature, they has a 'photo eye' which can see if flame is present in the stove or not.
With up to 37 or 41 hours maximum burn time depending on the model, and automatic heat regulation, it can be left to do its job.
Surge protection is recommended.If you are unsure of the meanings of the terms in the pellet stove review below,or their implications, please go to the Pellet Stove Reviews page for an explanation.

The large bay window layoutof the Whitfield Profile gives a good view of the fire from anywhere in the room.
A log set is available as an option to make the stove look more like a traditional woodburner.
The 'ultra grate' should be checked every day or so, making sure that the air holes are scraped clean.
Initially you need to check ash levels every day or so until you get used to how much ash is produced by the pellets you're burning. Dumping ash is easy: just pull back a sliding plate and brush it into the ash pan.
It's advised to check the exhaust passages and vent pipe for a build up of fly ash every month or two. Remove the ash clean out ports and either brush out or use an ash vacuum.
Between one and six months, clean the photo eye and the filter it detects the flame through.
The heat exchanger tubes have a built in scraper to remove fly ash.When the scraper is pulled out, clean behind it with a bottle brush . Recommended frequency is from two days to two weeks.
Door gaskets, window wash vents and the rear stove compartment are advised to be checked once a year.
