Furniture Quality Beauty –
The Upland 207 Pellet Stove is available in five porcelain enameled colors: Black, Red, Green, Almond, and Taupe. The Upland’s natural draft and bottom feed system produces the most attractive fire view in the industry. The large glass-ceramic window in the polished, nickel plated door stays remarkably clean. The Upland cast-iron body efficiently radiates a comfortable heat without the need for noisy, air drying convection fans. A small, quiet computer type fan draws out the heat from the back of the stove. The top is large enough to hold a steamer, crock of cider, or even pot of soup. A
75 lb. capacity hopper allows the stove to run for up to three days unattended.

Outside air that is mandated by virtually all other pellet stoves is available but not required. (Patents Pending) One does not need to cut a 2″ or 3″ diameter hole in the floor and outside wall for the combustion air tubing.
This makes the Upland 207 Pellet Stove “plug and play” when replacing an old wood or coal stove. Place the Upland where you old stove sat, connect the pellet vent to your existing chimney, plug it in and you are ready to go!
The downside to some, it requires a chimney. The chimney should clear the roof and meet standard wood stove standards except for the allowed use of 4 in. pellet vent pipe. Pellet vent is considerably less expensive than an all fuel chimney as required for a wood or coal stove.
This type of installation eliminates many of the potential problems found in the installations that only vent out a side wall. More importantly, the natural draft slows the flow of gases through the firebox yielding better combustion and a nicer fire view.
