I am brand new to the forums, and am looking to buy a free standing wood stove. Currently I have a prefab ZC fireplace, and am looking to pull it out stud it, drywall it and replace it with a free standing wood stove in the corner of my living room. I live in Mid Missouri where the winters are not as harsh as they are in the northern states. Ranch style house was built in the 80's, and is 1100sq ft. It is not the most efficient home but is by far probably not the worst either. The stove location will be on one corner of the house and the bedrooms are located on the other side off the hallway. Location of stove will be out of the way so my son cannot run into it and burn himself. What I am trying to determine is what size stove would be best suited for heating my entire home 24/7?. Thoughts on would this stove be enough to heat my entire home to a decent temp mid to low 70's? I am looking at: Napoleon 1100 pedestal BTU Heat Output Range 11,700-42,200 Heating sq ft. 600-1600 Burn Time-7 Hrs High Burn Thanks Any response is appreciated.
