    Question:

    We are trying to make the family room more enjoyable in the winter. We have gas heat by forced hot air and the downstairs (family room) is about 8 degrees colder than the upstairs. We have a fireplace both upstairs and downstairs. We were possibly interested in putting a pellet stove insert in the downstairs to take the chill off during the evening hours. Is this the best way to go? The stove would not be in use during the day. Thanks, Mike D.



    Answer:

    A pellet stove is one option. A gas stove or insert would also do the job. Since you have gas in the home, this would be an easy installation. It would heat up as fast or faster than the pellet stove and might require less work and service.

    If you want to use a renewable fuel, the Pellet stove is also a good choice. It will require a bit more work, and must be plugged in, but also provides heat relatively quickly after startup. Many of the newer models have electric startup and work from a thermostat.
