Question: Should I buy a stove with lots of automatic features like auto ignition? What are the
You might have heard this recently; “my stove is better than the other guys because ours lights automatically”. Is this really true and is this what I should look for? The answer to this burning question is really quite simple. If you would rather pay to have the electrical company light your appliance go for it. They really enjoy getting a check at the end of the month. Honestly, there are so many great features available today that will make your life easier, and you need to decide if they are right for you.
Do not, however, get led into thinking that these features mean that the appliance is better.
Do you want an appliance that does not meet your needs, but starts itself ? Not where you want to be I am sure.
Manually lighting a corn or pellet stove takes about 3-5 minutes. Automatically lighting a corn or pellet stove takes about 3-5 minutes. The difference is manually you use a match and automatically you are replacing the match with a form of an electronic match. Sometimes the difference is simply your preference. To weigh the benefits you need to decide if it is important to have the appliance light while you are away from home or if you would rather be there to light the appliance.
The MagnuM and Country Flame product line come in both styles.
We feel that if you are trying to conserve our natural resources, you should light the appliance manually to save electricity. If you don’t worry about that sort of thing we have optional auto ignition systems to allow automatic lighting of the appliance. The economical and efficient method is to manually light your appliance, use the manual or thermostatic operation mode to evenly balance your heating needs and enjoy long burn times between lighting your appliance. Most auto ignition systems on the market today incorporate a full shut down feature and should your home require frequent lighting of the appliance (sometimes 15-20 times per day), you will experience premature failure of the auto system.
The difference with MagnumHeat.com company and products is that we care about your needs and taking the time to help you make the best choice for your situation.
