Hey there new to the forums and new to wood burning stoves. I recently pulled the trigger on a encore non cat 1450 stove for $500that is brand new. Actually just left a $100 deposit on it. After doing a little research on this web site it seems to be a terrible stove??!!$&@ Did I make a mistake should I just walk away from the 100 deposit?? I am in Northern California and am just looking for a green way to heat my new to me house. When i do get a stove I will still have to install the flu and all other items as the house does not have any provisions for that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thnx in advance. FYI the area I am trying to heat is about 1500-2000 square feet. Thats a rough estimate.
