Hi Everyone, I'm looking to heat my home with wood next year and am continuing my research on how to do it. You guys have been a great resource so far! I'm torn between an insert or a stove and was looking for advice based on the space I have to work with. My goal is to use as little oil as possible to heat. The house is a 1200 sqft cape, 800 down, 400 up (approx) I've attached a photo of the fireplace and here are some measurement; Opening- 29" tall, 36" widest point, 26 1/2" narrowest point, 16" deep There is 6 inches of brick around the opening and wood trim around the brick. The hearth is 20" now but wouldn't mind going a little bigger. I understand the basic pros and cons of stove vs insert but am hoping for some specific challenges i would face with either based on the layout I have. If there's any brands you recommend throw that at me too, my local dealer seems fond of napoleon insert.. If there is any other info I can give you to help just let me know. Thanks a lot everyone!
