    I'm interested in backing up my gas furnace with a gas stove.
    It's not uncommon for power to be knocked out by wet heavy snows here in the northeast.
    Where can I find unbiased reviews of gas stoves?
    There are too many manufacturers all claiming best construction and performance.
    This will be my first purchase and I don't want to make an expensive mistake.
    I have a 1004sq/ft ranch that years ago had a wood stove (slate pad already in place).
    It would have to vent to the rear where the exit pipe is approximately 22 inches off the floor.
    I am obviously concerned with cost, performance and longevity.
    I would appreciate any assistance you folks might be able to offer me.

    $2400, in matte black. Have you priced your Heritage lately? It is now $2825.

    Go for one with high btu output that you can still turn down to 50% or less. EG: 40k btu input that can be tuned down to 15k input is nice and controllable. This way you`ve got the heat when you need it and can still minimize the heat during the shoulder seasons.

    2400 for bare bones+350 to get a shiney one+325 for the blower+ a delivery charge + state sales tax etc.

    How many of our pickups have AM radios and vinyl floors? Yes, I see the entire HS line has gotten more expensive. Wow. The good news is that my woodstove is worth more than ever.

    Have all manufacturers hiked their prices so significantly? I admit to liking the HS line enough that the price hikes are even more of a blow.
