I love pellet stoves that are not only efficient, but pretty. I’d call the new AGP™ pellet stove from Lopi “handsome.” The rust patina side panels give the stove a classy, yet somewhat rugged, rustic look.
Most definitely. It has a heating capacity of 800 to 2,000 square feet and cranks out 11,480 to 41,000 BTUs per hour. That’s an excellent range for a pellet stove; in fact, it could practically heat my whole house!
The hopper capacity is 80 pounds of pellets, and it has a burn rate of 1.4 to 5 pounds per hour. Translated into plain English, that means you can get up to 57 hours of burn time before you need to reload the stove.
Not only that, but the stove’s horizontal rotary disc system controls the amount of fuel that leaves the hopper and enters the auger. That means that there is no direct path between the burning fuel, the auger and hopper, which eliminates any chance of burn back.
The AGP is designed to efficiently burn all grades of wood pellets. In fact, that’s how the AGP got its name; AGP stands for All Grades of Pellets. In this stove, you can burn any grade of ¼-inch or 5/16th diameter fuel. It’ll even burn the sawdust that’s left over in the bag of pellets!
The EPA has certified the AGP as extremely clean burning; it produces less the 1 gram of emissions per hour (which makes it exempt from burn bans).
Another nice feature of this stove is that it’s self-cleaning, so you'll rarely need to remove any unburned pellets.
The AGP comes with two side-panel color choices: black painted or rust patina.
All-in-all, the AGP sounds like a winner.
Be sure to visit one of Rich’s five Puget Sound showrooms in Lynnwood, Bellevue, Southcenter, Tacoma, or Silverdale and ask to see the Lopi AGP pellet stove.
Here’s a video that walks you through how to operate the AGP.
