    Hey guys first post here. Im kinda looking into a fireplace insert for my house. This wil be the 2nd stove in the house. The other stove is a Earth Stove MP35-50 that is around 15-20 years old. Still runs like a champ. Im kinda leaning For the Harmon P35i. I like the look of it and the track system to pull it out.

    I dont know much about stoves. The house i live in used to be my parents. The earth stove my dad bought many years ago. If i get a fireplace insert for up stairs i think i could heat almost the whole house.

    I have electric heat now. Just replaced the heat pump outside and the air handler inside with a new Trane 16xl. Total job was 10,500 bucks. Its really a efficient AC/Heater. Thats why it cost so much. It has a sheer rating of like 18. This will be the first winter with it. I just dont know if it will be smart to spend 3-4k on a stove when my heater may not be that much to run.

    So anyway if you were in the market today for a insert what would you buy??

    Is quadra fire and harmon own by the same people. It seems like their websites are almost laid out the same.

    Yep. Quadra-Fire and "Harman" are both owned by Hearth and Home Technologies.

    I have a 52i and couldn't be happier with it. Really puts great heat out. Good luck with your choice. I went and look at a lot of stoves before buying this one.
