After 30 years of using a Jotul 603c (the smallest wood stove made) to heat with, the gas company decided to run the gas line to my house. We still have very cheap natural gas in Wyoming so a gas stove replacement makes sense. Won't really miss wood as we have no hardwoods to speak of only various pine to burn and the cost has gone up faster than my age. I will not buy another large chain saw, ever. My house is 1600 sq ft and is super insulated with R-65 ceiling and R-40 walls. The Jotul would really keep the whole place warm with some additional fan support. My dilema is how big to go with a gas stove style heater. Cost appears to be small between large and small, and my wife would like most of the various sized we looked at, so that part is solved. I just wonder about sizing. Any ideas? Any thoughts about brands? We have a good dealer for Vermont Casting and Hearthstone. Been in business for more than 10 years so likely to be there for service and warranty. Just need some acvice. The only friends I have with gas stoves have much larger houses that are no wheres near as well insulated, so it is hard to compare. Wyoming gets cold -40F is not unheard of and common is -20F for weeks on end at night. Days are sunny with lots of solar gain. Any thoughts are welcomed.
