Hello again, Last time I posted I was considering moving the woodstove but have changed my mind, but we are considering a new stove this year. ( Okay, I finally talked my wife into it ) My current stove is an Efel Harmony Catalytic Model # 386.75, about 25 years old now. This stove was in the house when we bought it 11 years ago, we only used the stove on weekends in the winter, more as ambience than a heat source. But now with heating oil through the roof the last 5 years or so I've been burning 4 cord a year through the winter and using it as my main heat source. A little info to better help you guide me to the perfect stove........ I live in New England so the burning season for me would be about 5~6 months or so, the house is about a 1400 sf cape and the stove sits in the living room. I would like an 8 hour burn time so I can keep the stove burning all winter without restarting it from scratch. I would like to stay under $2000. as my budget but I also don't want to buy a cheap stove. Something that doesn't need a lot of clearance because the living room is on the small side. I am in the process of removing the existing brick hearth right now because it's huge and takes up a lot of the room. I'm going to be putting it on a hearth pad which I will buy with my stove. Thanks for any input and guidance you can provide a GREEN stove buyer....... <=====Pun intended!
