Quadrafire Castille stove – we have had it for 9 years. I have burned around a dozen bags of Northern Warmth Super Spruce pellets over the past two weeks, and they burn well in our stove. There is ash build-up after a week, which I remove with a shop-vac, but this is pretty typical in our stove for premium pellets. The outside edges of the glass get dirty after several days, but not enough for me to feel like I need to clean it until the end of the week. I also empty the burn-pot every third day or so, and the remains there are free of clinkers or harsh smells. Cheap pellets I have gotten in the past at Home Depot force me to clean the stove at least twice as often, with dirtier remains. These Super Spruce pellets burn clean. We also burned Okanagans for a couple of seasons in the past, and liked them. The heat output of these Super Spruce pellets is probably not as good as the Okanagans, but it still above average heat, in my judgement.
Northern Warmth is in no way close to the quality of Okanagan. My distributor was told by the new manufacturer that they were the same blend as Okanagan. This was not true. They were terrible. We cleaned ash almost daily. Okanagan Douglas Fir were the best pellets we ever used. What a shame we cannot get them anymore. Not sure what we will chose for this burning season.
According to okanaganpellets.com/faqs.aspx
Northern Warmth has nothing to do with Okanagan Wood Pellets and the brands are not related in any way.
I have the same complaint as the other three reviewers. I was told by my dealer that these were the same as the Okanagens I had burned for the last 6 years. These burn poorly with low heat. The black ash gums up in my clink pot and I have to keep adjusting the air flow to keep the stove burning. At the start of the winter I had about 3/4 ton of Okanagens left from last year and I used them on the coldest days because its the only way that I could be confident that the stove wouldn’t go out. Unfortunately I will be left with about 1/2 ton of this crap at the end of this year. I’ll probably just toss them in the woods
I bought 2 tons of Turman and 1 ton of Northern Warmth. The Turman Burned nice with low ash. I can’t say anything nice about the Northern warmth. Low heat output but worst yet black ash. Never had this happen with any of the cheaper brands. I predict you will not see Northern Warmth next season. Probably change the packaging just to dump them.
Stove – Harman XXV Anniversary Model – Same issue as other person has with the Northern Warmth Spruce. We were told they replaced the Okanagan Platinums we always burned……they turn the glass black right away and have more ash. Not happy about this.
Went looking for Okanagan this fall and my local dealer told me that it was bought by Northern Warmth, but it’s the exact same pellets. What a load of crap. These pellets have way more ash, and they turn my glass black almost instantly. Nothing like the okies I was used to last year. Very disappointed.
