Decent heat, very few fines per bag, very little soot on glass, but much more ash this year than the last two. All in all though I would buy again and am satisfied that these Home Depot pellets are a good value at a decent product.Report
This is my third year burning Fireside and I'm very disappointed. I have measured pellets up to 1 3/4 inches long. These pellets are causing jams going down into my auger opening. They have a quality issue.Report
My stove is an Enviro. I bought 4 tons of Fireside Ultra this year. Burns well. Put out good heat. Produces lots of soot and ash. Have to shut down stove every other day to empty the burn pot. The ash forms like a brick. Glass in stove become pitch black. I cleaned chimney as well as all air ways in stove. Purchased 2 bags of Green Team Platinum..hardwood 2 days ago to compare. Apples and oranges: There's no comparison. The Green Team Platinum is far superior. Have been burning the Green Team 2 days. No ash in burn pot. Will have to go back to Ultra. Purchased at HomeDepot in Littleton. Will go back to Green Team at Lowes next season. I know 1 product is hard wood while the other is soft wood. Might be the difference.Report
we in NH are in a real cold snap as all know..we have had a pellet stove for many years are 80 years young so he KNOWS the in and outs..Just want you to know that so far Fireside ultra keeps us the warmest of ALL and we have tried them all...lol Keep making this wonderful product..Report
1/2/18 burned 2 pallets (out of 4) in my Napoleon NPI45 Insert so far this heating season. The FSU pellet produces good heat. I would guess the ash content is average to many other pellets. I clean my insert 2x per week. Satisfied with the heat/price/delivery.
This our 3rd year of having a pellet stove. My husband heard good things about this brand so we figured we would give it a try. We purchased 3 pallets! Unfortunately, they cause so much ash that we will most likely not buy them again. There are times that we can't even start the stove unless we clean the entire area which has never been a problem. Very disappointed and not returning at the moment because they are packed in our garage and can't imagine how we would return this many bags!Report
Thats Funny you say that, I bought 10 of these at the end of 2016 from Depot in Manchester and LOVED Them! Very Low ash I have the same stove the XXV.
So I bought a ton this year 2017 from Depot in Concord. 1/2 the ton was great low ash 2nd 1/2 of the ton was garbage HUGE ash piles like in your Pic.
I have been burning fireside ultra for the last couple of years that I purchased at Home Depot in Concord NH,burns hot with a lot of ash . Last night I emptied a bag into the hopper and found a half dollar sized piece of concrete . In the past I have also found small pieces of wood that I hadn't thought was a big deal, because pellets are made from wood. Very Disappointed!Report
Not sure what happened this year. Burned these pellets last winter season all season, 4 tons and they were great. This year I hadn't changed a thing from last year and can't seem to escape the amount of ash and half burnt pellets I'm getting. I decided to adjust the stove's air, installed an Outside air kit, and drill a few extra holes in my firepot to help. Still no relief. I think that some of these companies vary every year and there's not a sure brand to be consistent enough to say "I only burn this X brand, they burn great". If someone knows of that "X" brand pellets, please let me know.
Pleasant hearth pellet stove model: PH50CABPS
I have a pleasant Hearth PH 35 PS. I have been burning pellets for three years I buy whatever brand Home Depot has ,I’ve never been picky. The past three years if you went outdoors, it smelled like wood stove smoke. I bought two pallets this winter I’m about halfway through the first pallet and I’ve noticed every time I smell the smoke it smells like Styrofoam burning like the pellets have been contaminated with something. Also it seems to be filling up the Ashpot much quicker than previous years .Report
