Harman Oakwood vs. Jotul Oslo 500
I am having some second thoughts after placing a deposit on a Harman Oakwood yesterday. While I did like the unit better it is 300 dollars more then the Jotul. The thing that made me second guess my decision was that the Harman is rated at 42,000 BTU's while the Jotul is rated at 70,000 BTU's. Can this be true for two similar units or is the Jotul's numbers inflated? Can anyone comment on the build quality of the two. I know Harman is established, but obviously not as well recognized as the Jotul and is new to the cast iron wood stove market. My local dealer recommended the Harman, but am surprised they did not mention the BTU difference. I have a modern colonial about 3000 sq. ft. Thanks for your input.
