    I would take a look at the Jotul line. They have a cook top like your VC

    Good news, everyone--an email from Woodstock:


    Debbie,​

    The decision has been made by us to participate in this program. We are working out the protocol on how we will handle the application process and voucher reimbursement. I'll keep you posted. Have a great weekend.​

    I'll let you know how the bureaucracy works out so others can follow in my footsteps. (No need to let you know how the stove works out--you know that in advance!)

    Put me down for "no" to the Leyden, Defiant, or the Encore.

    The Leydon is like a non-cat version of a VC stove. It is hit or miss when it comes to successfully operating the stove. I run a Defiant and an Encore. They run great for me, BUT, they have a lot of maintenance. Also, parts and quality control STILL seem to be an issue judging be the reports we are seeing.

    I would think a certified installer from one of these organizations can handle the installation requirements. Go to the site and type in your zip code. Ask if they are qualified as certified installers for the program and document everything, including pictures.
