I like the idea of an insert, but the cost of one of them vs a wood furnace is about the same. To describe my house its a single story w/ a basement 1200square fpot. Plaster walls on the inside & asbestos siding on the outside. New windows in the fall of 11' & a front door for the main living area ( living room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms & 1 bath). There is a breeze way that is separated by a hollow door that leads to the garage. Mind u, the door stays close to the breezeway in the winter months because of the draft, there is no draft this way. I have a fireplace in the north side of the house main floor & a wood chuck brand wood stove with a blower in the basement below the fireplace, there are 2 separate chimneys of course. Mind u, the wood chuck stove has a blower on the bottom of it, that is connected to a thermostat switch. 150degrees blower is on & off @ 130 degrees. Usually get minute to 3 minutes run time, then off till the fire box gets hot again. 6" pipe with a manual damper connects it to a masonary clay tiled chimney. There is another clay tiled chimney in the center of the house. Will take a 6" pipe that once vented an oil furnace. Thinking about switching to that flue since it is center of the house. If I were to buy a wood furnace by Fire Chief, the 700 is more stove than I need, but if I open the breezeway door, I think it will even the temperature. I would rather go a step bigger in stove size. I live on 170 acres with a 100 of it being woods. Plenty of oaks, hickory, walnut, whatever. I am no stranger to a chainsaw or woodsplitter. Thanks for the input thus far has helped me think about this a lot. Keep it coming.
