FEATURES AND BENEFITS


High Heating Capacity
Castle Serenity offers an amazing BTU rating of 35,000 that makes this unit powerful enough to produce enough heat for a 1500 square feet house, room, or apartment. It produces a very hot flame that will help combat the bone-chilling winter months. This appliance is also compact in size and requires little space for setup. You can easily set up it in your house and enjoy the delightful warmth throughout the summer.

RC Programmable
One thing that makes this appliance unique is that you can program it via a remote control that comes with the unit. All the features are fully programmable, and all you need to do is feed its system with the right instructions and it will automatically interpret those instruction and produce the desired results. This way, you won’t have to get up from the couch or recliner to adjust its settings.

Automatic Switch Ignition
One thing I really like about this stove is its automatic switch ignition feature. This auto light switch really makes your life easy and is designed to prevent any unexpected fire outbreaks. You can also pre-set the ignition to operate at a later date. Simply turn on the switch, and it will ignite automatically.

Ease of Installation
Being compact, Castle pellet stoves are very easy to install. It requires very little setup time. As a matter of fact, it comes ready for use right out of the box. All you have to do is place it in the right spot where want it, feed its hopper with the pellets, and ignite it using the automatic ignite button.

Incredible Thermal Efficiency
Nowadays, you will hardly find any wood pellet stove that uses minimal fuel and produces a high quantity of heat. This home appliance has an amazing thermal efficiency of 69.8%, which is far better than most of the wood pellet stoves on the market. This way, you will be burning fewer pellets and spending less on buying more.

Hopper & Vacuum
Serenity 12327 has a very unique switching mechanism. Its vacuum switch is nicely encapsulated in an evacuated envelope, and it uses a vacuum to separate the contacts whenever this switch is engaged. Moreover, its vacuum separator forestalls the formation of the sparks, which makes it extremely safe.
As a whole, this switching mechanism is less likely to blow and result in any fire outbreak, and the entire process of triggering the appliance to discharge its roles is extremely simple.

Ease of Cleaning
We usually hear that cleaning a wood pellet stove is one heck of a task to do. Right? Well, this is not the case with Castle Serenity 12327. This home appliance is fairly easy to clean and tidy up. This is because the majority of its parts and components are resistant to dirt, and the unit nicely deals with smoke and exhausts.

Air Wash System
This is perhaps the best feature of this stove. What the air wash system does is it sucks in the cold and clean air, uses it to wash the inside of its glass and this helps to keep your appliance clean throughout the heating session. This doesn’t hinder the emission of heat into the external environment, and the appliance has the capability to discharge two roles at a go.

Customer Support
There is nothing better than great customer support, and Castle leaves no stone unturned when it comes to it. In case you receive a damaged unit, or a part of it malfunctions during the warranty period or it doesn’t work for some unknown reason, all you need to do is call the Castle customer support, explain your problem you are facing and get it resolved in less than 48-hours on average.

Warranty
Castle Wood Stove is a bit pricey and comes with a solid warranty. The manufacturer bears any losses during the predefined warranty duration. This way, it offers protection to the users on his investment, reduces the maintenance cost, and instills confidence in the users that their products is backed by a good warranty.

Benefits of the Serenity Wood Pellet Stove

Excellent BTU

12327 Serenity wood pellet stove comes with many benefits and is perhaps the reason why you should choose this heater over many others on the market. Here are some of the benefits of this stove that will help you understand this product even better:

Highly Effiecient

It is highly efficient, and as mentioned earlier, it has a roughly 70% efficiency rate, which means it generates more energy from burning the pellets as compared to any other stove on the market. Its high-quality and innovative heat exchanger keeps the heat inside your home and prevents it from escaping through the ventilation.

Steel Made

It is made of steel, which makes it durable and offers the best strength possible. Its durable steel construction allows you to easily clean. However, you should be careful that steel is a good conductor of heat, and as the unit heats up your room or house, it also becomes too hot. Don’t let any children go near it and be careful when touching it.

Affordable Price

This stove is very affordable, especially for the features it offers. At such a low price, it can heat up to 2,800 square feet area and you can use any type pellets you wish to use. Even if you buy some cheap pellets, it would still keep the running costs as low as possible.
