    Want to put stove in basement- walls are not insulated two sides only one foot exposed above ground other sides exposed two feet above ground
    Does Add On Furnance have any secondary burn technology" ? Wanted to have heat run up staircase
    Is the 30 nch big enough to heat whole house?
    House is 2000 square foot cape not including basement (3100 square feet with basement)6" insulation in walls 12" in Attic.
    Basement stays at 55 in winter when boiler is not running due to minimum exposure to elements.
    Last year used 486 gallons of fuel to heat house and make Hot water for year and 1 1/2 cord of wood
    Last question- Has anyone heard of heating basement causing trouble with foundation as heat penetrates walls cauisng ground to thaw and refreeze?

    Thanks in advance
