Overall Good System
November 26, 2012
I purchased this wood burner to use as primary heat for my house. It has not yet got down below zero but I have seen some high 20 degree nights and just using this as my heat source I can keep a steady 75 degrees give or take. However, this is not my first stove and I will say you need to be very picky on the wood you burn in it in order to get good and long burns, and you need to burn large loads. My house is new built, 1600 sq feet, 2 story. Furnace is located in garage tied into my HVAC unit. House is very well insulated. So taken my experience and with using this as primarily my heat 24-7 I would rate it 4 stars. Heats good and close to great, have to keep up on great wood, takes up very little space and is easy to maintain. Cons- door latch needs tightening every other day, not capable of using hot water coil adapter. Happy with how it performs at this point, kinda nervous about teens or below zero temps, I think then I might have to have hvac help out some.I would recomend it to others, but if your like me I would go bigger next time.
Pros:Overall good not perfect, but good. Happy with what I got for what I paid. Very happy with this store.
Cons:Walmart can make a better door latch. Have to burn very high btu wood to get warmth in home above 70 degrees.
