Hello All, I need a little help figuring out which stove i should pick. Here are the details of my situation... I live in a 1400 sq. ft. super-insulated passive solar home in southern Maine, the last two winters we have used a old Jotul 602 to heat the place when the sun is not enough, we burned about 1 - 1 1/2 cords and kept the house at about 60*f. Last week one of the side burn plates cracked right in half, no surprise really, it was a free stove and that piece was cracked when we got it. I took out the broken plate, bolted it back together and put it back in... sadly when i was putting back in i found that the baffle has a sizeable hole burned in it So its time for a new stove. Our hearth is sized for a 602 so the options are limited. I could pick up a used 602 for $150-$250 or a could invest in a F118 BlackBear for around $1200. I'm not against putting some money into a nice stove, but I'm not sure it would be a better stove for my situation. Any thoughts? My main questions are: Will i end up burning more wood with the larger stove? Will it burn less cleanly because to get a similar amount of heat out of it it will need to be choked down more? Does the fact that all the burn plates in my current stove bit the dust indicate that I'm doing something wrong, or is it just wear and tear? If i get another used 602 will i end up burning out the plates in a few years? Any other stoves of a similar size that might be worth waiting to find? Thanks for the help!
