We have been on an odyssey since a tornado took down so many old growth trees on our property. We have a fireplace that looks nice, but is horribly inefficient, only heats one room and is 1" too darn small for any wood insert. Since I really dislike propane, and we are planning a solar installation in the near term future, this new wood stove will heat the whole house using resources that literally "fell" into our lap. A clean burn is important to us so after reading the research on emissions, burn rate etc. we went for this one.
