Best wood fire insert/please say experience
I'm interested in an attractive heat efficient wood insert, and it's a big expense for me, but I feel that I want the coziness of a wood fire, charm, alternative heat source. My house is only 1600 square feet and the insert would go into a very poor existing fireplace- wrong dimensions, short chimminey, you name it, it has the problem. I grew up with fireplaces, so I love them. I looked at Jotul and Rais and Lopi. Appearance really counts, but so does expense and efficiency. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
