I have an older model 52 insert which works great, came with the house when we bought it in 2000, I think the insert is from the 80's, heating around 1200 sq ft with it. The cats were cooked so I just removed them as they were an option on this model at the time per the manual. We are doing a remodel, hopefully within the next year and want to replace it with a new insert and move this one to the basement. Just need some feed back on the new 52 bay. Mostly, would you buy it again? I'm considering all brands right now, but since the old 52 works so well I'm leaning towards the new Bay. BTW I just spent 2 hours reading older threads on the Appalachian stoves, found some good info there, but doesn't seem like many on here have them. Any info would be helpful.
