fireplace help ... Empire? or others?
I am putting a new addition on my house that will be a sunken living room off of my kitchen. The room will be 18 x 20 that will have an additional vent in the room but the fireplace will be the main hear source for this room. In addition I would like to use it as a supplemental heat source for the rest of the small ranch which is another 1,000 sq ft. I am looking at the whitemoutain hearth by Empire comfot systems. It is the tahoe luxury model DVX36. Does anyone have any opinions on this or can you recommend another brand. I have also looked at Regency, heatilator and mendota. Thoughts???
