Hi, Believe it or not, winters can get cold in San Diego! I've been using a Country Stoves wood-burning fireplace insert in my living room for about 10 years and it does a good job heating the living room and kitchen on cool winter nights. I'm in the process of adding a 2nd floor over the garage that will be a home office and a guest bedroom. I want to install a floor-standing wood burning stove in that area. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions for the make//model of stove that would be suitable for my needs. Here's a description: The area will be well insulated (in-wall insulation and dual pane windows). Need to heat about 550 sq ft. I am interested in maximum efficiency and minimum pollution. Will use a metal chimney going straight up through the roof. I'll be burning wood (not pellets). I'm not running any forced air heating to this room, so the only source of heat will be the stove. In the winter, we get nighttime lows that can drop into the mid-30s, although low to mid 40s is more typical. (That might not sound cold to some of you, but everybody who has lived through a winter in California says that 40 degrees here feels like 25 degrees in the upper midwest.) I would like to get a stove that will last a long time. I'm planning on being in this house for at least 20 more years. (I pretty much have to after what I'm spending on the addition!) Any suggestions for a stove that would be suitable for this situation? Thanks in advance for all suggestions!
