Question: I recently purchased a Vermont Casting Intrepid II and have yet to install it in my house as a free standing unit. My question is will the Intrepid II be enough stove for this room? I would like to heat more than just this room, maybe not the whole house but a few more rooms would be nice. Should I consider returning the Intrepid II for a slightly larger stove, possibly the VC Resolute? I was told not to oversize as more problems could arise. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Answer: At first glance, I would agree that you could step up. I used an Acclaim in a 14 x 24 room with a regular ceiling in the Midatlantic area with no overheat problems.
