    Think i'm going with the Vornado flat fan V102, supposedly very powerful and 'whisper quiet'. I'll see about that though.
    Anything will be better than the Honeywell whole house fan i have though. On low that fan is very loud but obviously extremely powerful but pretty impossible to watch television.

    With that fan on low the entire house (2300 sq ft) gets up to 72-74 degrees which is perfect.

    Hello All

    3rd week of burning and really no complaints. I'm very happy with my decision to go with the Jotul C450.
    I'm also actually a big fan of the double doors on this unit, which i got that way to save a few bucks.
    Also, installing the Rheostat to control the blower has been great, i love being able to adjust it however i want
    instead of just low and high.

    I went from a weekend burner to an everyday burner and i love it. Hoping to save a ton on heating bills
    now lets see how much wood i go through, i only have 1.5 cords, unfortunately no space for anymore right now.

    The general opinion on this forum (mine included) is that you can go ahead and use them, but they are not a replacement of dry wood and a regular chimney cleaning.

    I have 2 large rooms, kitchen , then hall to bedrooms, 1200 sq ft. I've got a cheap $10 fan(20" square) from walmart in front of the insert set to low speed, ceiling fan going in next room, and central air system fan going. The intake from the hall way sucks in air and runs it through the duct system. Seems to be working, bedrooms are warming up. I get cooler air blowing from the register in the living room, where the insert is, for a while until the warm air is circulated throughout the house. Did you put in a block off plate? It seems this insert really needs a block off plate.

    Are the andirons the two little spikes about an inch or two from the glass? What is their function?

    Thanks!
