I installed 2 of these now and we absolutely love it. I installed one in my old house and liked it so much i put one in the new house we built. I installed it in the new house while we were in construction and used it to heat the job site through an entire NH winter while we were building. I find it super easy to use and very efficient. the smart control makes all the difference. It allows you to set schedules and control the heat to what you need and when. The only short gap is that it is not wifi or smart home enabled. It would seem to men that enabling those features would make this unit a complete solution
We are in the same situation. We have had the Harman Accentra for 7 years and every other year it needs a major repair and we pay out about $500-$700. Insane! We are going to switch to ductless heaters.
I have had a Harmon accentra . pellet stove insert for about five years now. I have not gone one year without having to make a major repair on this thing. I’m so sick of it. Obviously it’s not made to last very long. Never buy one again.
Just installed a 2006 Harman Accentra as a second pellet stove in a lower level family room and I am very impressed with it. Great heat output, quiet operation on both blower and chain auger drive and looks terrific.
Purchased the free standing Harman Accentra in spring of 2010, and used it to heat our 14 ft. high ceilng great room (1,000 sq. ft.) through the bitter cold winter of 2010-2011. We loved it! We could set it on ‘stove’ temp on middle fan and no. 5, and it would keep the entire area at 73-74. My husband is very good at cleaning it thoroughly and often, we purchase quality pellets through our Harman dealer. When we started noticing its inability to stay up to temp, we had the dealer come twice. They cleaned it on top of my husband’s cleaning, hooked up the computer, and found nothing wrong. We’ve read all there is to read about making sure exhaust is clean, gaskets are sealed, etc. We have it direct vented and keep it cleaned. Why isn’t our stove operating up to the great potential of last year? We’ll set the stove temp. to absolute max. and the flame is mostly weak. Are there any inefficiency issues we should be made aware of? Thank you so very much.
We have had our stove for three seasons now. Great stove works well we are looking at getting a second for our there building. The only thing negative would be the fan noise, and when cool the auger squeaks. Auger is quiet when warm.
