Buying Pellet Stove INSERT and Don't know which to get
New here...great threads and read alot but now wife and I are ready to buy and don't know what we want exactly.
Home area to be heated: 1960 Sq Ft
Currently have natural gas furnace and will keep that as backup and such but would rather it not come on! :)
Want this pellet stove to go into our fireplace (mason brick chimney)... fireplace box size is 35" wide, 29" high and 23" deep and the shelf that sticks out is brick and slate and extends out from the fireplace 15"... you can easily sit on it...
We want a pellet stove insert and have decided we are done with the work of wood (loved it but tired and no time)...want to stay under $5000.00 installed.
Chimeny we now have is about 15' high (one floor ranch)... Looks like Harman is the brand many of you like and that would be fine but I cannot see from their website where they have a pellet insert big enough for our 1960 sq feet area.
we are open to suggestions on brands. We want themostat and other features that make it easy as possible.
What would YOU buy with $5000.00 complete price to accomplish the job?
Does harman make an insert for this size area and if so which model?
And finally: Should we just get a stand alone model and keep the fireplace for any special reason we may not be thinking of?
