Yes, all Breckwell pellet stoves are capable of being used with a thermostat. We offer a hand held remote thermostat (Part # AG-RCN) available from your local dealer or direct from our website.
In addition, you may use almost any millivolt thermostat purchased from a local retailer with our pellet stoves. For stoves manufactured in 2008 or older you will need to have a 250 or 500-millivolt thermostat. The 750 millivolt thermostats do not work well with these stoves. There are a few on the market that will work, but you will be much better off getting a 250 or 500 millivolt thermostat for these older pellet stoves.
For pellet stoves manufactured in 2009 and later you can use any millivolt thermostat including the 750 millivolt models.
All of our pellet stoves have the capability to operate in two different thermostat modes; high/low and on/off. Each of these two modes operate the stove slightly differently, and you should be familiar with how each is supposed to function.
The high/low thermostat mode is the recomended thermostat mode for all of our pellet stoves. In this mode you will have to manually turn the stove on by pressing the on/off button on the control panel. The stove will start to operate and you would then set the heat level to either the #2 or #3 setting. Once the stove comes out of the pre-programmed start-up mode, the unit will then operate in the high/low thermostat mode. What this means is that when the thermostat is calling for heat the pellet stove will run on the heat level you have the stove set to. When the thermostat is satisfied and not calling for heat the stove will cycle down to the #1 setting and idle. The heat level light will remain where you set it, and the on/off light will be flashing during this time. When the thermostat again calls for heat the on/off light will become solid again and the stove will run at the heat level setting you have the pellet stove set to. The stove will continue to function this way until you manually press the on/off button on the control panel. Again, this is the recomended thermostat mode.
The on/off mode is different in that the thermostat will automatically cause the stove to turn on and off. When the stove starts for the first time set the heat level to the #3 setting. The unit will run on the #3 setting until the thermostat is satisfied and no longer calling for heat. It will then shut down. Once the thermostat again calls for heat the unit will start and run on the #3 setting again until the thermostat is satisfied.
