I am new to this Forum. I hope someone or many can comment with their knowledge. I presently have a Hearthstone Equinox which I purchased last year. I had a Nashua stove (Largest one they made) prior to purchasing the Equinox. I heated one year with both. My problem is that the equinox does not hear as good as the Nashua. Both used a similar amount of wood. Although the Equinox has a longer burn time with less start-up's. I live in a large 2800sq foot, brick, big windows, old house in central Mass. The equinox does not heat as good as I hoped. Is there any better stoves out there. I purchased the Equinox because I thought it was the biggest and best. I can't help but think I did something wrong or purchased the wrong stove. Tom in Central Mass.
