Hello, I am currently looking into a new woodstove for my house. I live near Ottawa Canada .We use wood as a primary heater in a small bungalow. The stove is located in the uninsulated empty basement of a well insulated bungalow. The combined sq feet amount to a little under 2000 Sq feet. Insulating the basement is currently not on the agenda and am replacing the current stove as the door no longer appears to be sealing properly regardless of new gaskets and Its really just a big old cast iron box. I really like the idea of the super 27, but money is tight and I cant help but find myself drawn to the true north. I don't mind throwing on a sweater at all but I was just wondering if the truenorth would be likely to pull it off in this case. If the members here have any other sugestions I would be happy to hear them.
