Are top fed models of pellet stoves effiecient?

In top fed models, the hopper is located at the top of the auger. In this design, pellets are loaded into the auger from the top. The pellets go down through a chute into the fire. The merit of this model is that it reduces the chances of fire engulfing the pellets in the hopper. But there is flipside too. It is likely to get clogged with ashes and clinkers. As a result, if you are using this model, buy high-grade pellets that are low-ash. These models give better heating efficiency as pellets are completely burned.
