Hello, Well after quite some time of reading and searching , I was leaning towards a pellet stove insert, but recently changed my mind towards on a propane gas stove. I currently have a fireplace, used it last winter, doesnt heat the house much,, wife hates it due to the smell and smoke (that what she says ) The fireplace is in my basement (family room) approx 350 sq. feet, but would like to heat the main floor ( 2 story home). I was at a local stove store and the sales men said to stay away from propane if i'm planning on doing some serious heating and saving on my electric bills ( he sells propane/wood/pellet). After numerous conversations with co-workers and neighbors,,, propane is the simplest, easiest way to go. I recently stayed up north at a hotel which had propane fireplace,,, what a charm and beauty,, I was sold on a propane stove. Now , I want to go with a insert , seeing as the hole for my fireplace is already there. I don't want to cheap out , and end up regreting it later on, so I want a good quality stove. The are numerous make and models out there , but would like to see what people here are using and their feedback. So any suggestions and comments ??? The more the better Thanks !
