A few years ago, I purchased the small Regency free standing wood heater(. I think that the model is F1100.) and installed it in my basement (approx 1100 sqft area ). Upon using it I found that it worked great but the fire box is just plain too small to depend on longer burn times and convenience of running down stairs every hour . At this point I realized I made a mistake about too small of a heater. I have been shopping around for heaters and looked at many brands such as Quadra fire (very well built) pacific energy as well as larger Regency models but a heater that is capable of heating a 2000sqft area is very expensive. At this point I have cheapened out and ended up buying a large Century steel plate stove. I removed the little Regency and Installed the new Century ( big name stoves are definitely made with heavier plate). I have just started to use this stove and from what I have seen I like it so far. It appears to work good, has a heavy internal s/s baffle with 4 secondary burn tubes, fire brick lined, ash removal drawer under the pedestal. Spec say this stove is capable of heating up to 2000sqft. Hopefully it will work. Anyone else have used/use this brand of heater?
