I might have the chance to pick up a relatively new Mt Vernon AE for my basement. I'm already heating the rest of the house with a 10-CPM, so this would be basement duty only. Is this a good stove? Easy to use? Reliable? It would only need to heat about 1000 sq ft. Any issues to specifically look for? I'm 2nd in line, so I'm not getting my hopes up, but wanted to get feedback just in case. Thanks in advance.
