Hello, nice looking forums you have here. I'll admit, I'm a total greenhorn when it comes to stoves. I do however know the value of bulletin boards, as I moderate and post on a few myself that are in my line of work; so I thought I would find a good forum to ask some experts my question. I'm very low on money this year, and I'm looking for an alternative heat source (I used oil - forced air now). Anyhow, I've decided to go with a pellet stove, and have been looking at some used ones on ebay, craigslist, etc. and came across one for a decent price. Its a 1996 Lopi Fox Fire PS and is reportedly in excellent condition. I've tried googling it and visited Lopi's website, but can't really seem to find any information on them (other than a troubleshooting guide), so I have a few questions: Does anybody know what size (sq. ft) this unit would be capable of heating? I know pellet stoves vary in BTU rating depending on how hard they're burning. Is Lopi a decent brand, or are they an off brand? Is there anything in particular I should look for/at when considering a used stove? Any reccomendations/suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Like I said, I'm totally clueless here.
