I live the NW Chicago Burbs and have been thinkin of installing a Pellet Insert into my existing prefab Fireplace to add comfort and to help lower the use of the Forced air furnace. I have an open design Family room that feed into the kitchen, foyer, living, dining room while the staircase is centered in the middle of the house (bridge design) with 2 bedrooms at either end of the stairway/bridge. House is around 2800 Square Feet. Now the limiting factor I see is the size of my Majestic firebox (BR42I). It's limiting factor is the height which is at 19 inches. I was leaning toward a Harman but even the custom order on the ACCENTRA still requires 20" of height. I am now leaning toward the Country Winslow PI-40 insert which is right around 19". It looks like it has a comparable warranty to the Harman while requiring very little maintenance and a large cast iron fireport with large sized ash drawer. I want something that is definitely dependable and requires as little as possible cleanup/maintenance. I don't want to be emptying and cleaning every 3 or 4 days!! Will the Country PI-40 (rated around 38K BTUs) suit my neeeds and does anyone have any advice or feedback on this unit Please?
