Thank you for all the excellent information. My Kent stove is more than 20 years old & needs replacing (the interior top baffle is now so warped that the chimney damper will only move an inch or so). A welder has looked at it, but says it's not salvageable (well - not reasonably salvageable). It's my only source of heat & I've loved it - perfect for my home here in the Northwest Territories. Because we don't have easy access to parts or repair people, I need something really sturdy & reliable, able to heat from August to April with 8 weeks in middle of minus 40. I don't know the model of my Kent, but it's 19.5 " long X 15.25" high X 17.5" wide. My house is about 700 sq. ft with 437 sq ft on the main floor and a 256 sq. ft loft open to the main floor, so a bit of air volume. I've loved the welded contiguous steel and the simplicity. Knowledgeable people have suggested either Pacific Energy or Napolean as a replacement. I'd appreciate any feedback! Thanks!
