The Compak Wood Stove has many advantages when compared to other wood-burning stoves. It is highly energy efficient and can hold flames going for periods of five to nine hours with little effort to keep the flame going. It uses at least 1/3 less wood than older stoves aging at least 5 years. This is also the case when being compared to some of the newer stoves, allowing you to use less wood for more energy, and for longer periods of time. The structure of the stove provides consistent warmth on even the coldest days in absolutely any shop or room.
Absolutely no cleaning is required in terms of the fire view, because it has a built-in air-wash system that keeps the glass clean for viewing. You can keep a clean and effortless glass, rather than having to clean it after certain periods of time, like you do in many other stoves that do not provide this built-in system.
In terms of the quality of this stove, most would agree that it is excellent. It is highly energy efficient and provides enough heat to warm up any room during the winter. It has advantages in terms of the resources required to start up, and keep a flame going, and would be recommended to anyone who is looking for a small, yet efficient stove.

The major disadvantages of this stove in particular is the fact that it is often recommended as only an additional heating source to your primary household heating source. It does not generate enough heat to keep an entire house warm, unless certain measures are taken in terms of ventilation. This may include creating vents that do not already exist, or allowing air to pass through previous vents. Even then, it would be hard to keep the entire house warm.

    For those who want a clean, safe, and efficient heating stove, then this is the one for you. All of the Drolet Compak Wood Stoves are efficient in terms of heating a home, cottage, camp or any other area, but certain models are better than others when considering size, maximum output, and other specifications.
