We live in an older ranch home with a basement. We are considering putting a pellet stove insert into our exsisting fireplace on the main level of the house. Our fireplace is small the deminsions are 25 in wide, 24 in height and 20 in deot. Our main living area is about 1300 square feet. The only pellet insert that I was able to find that might fit would be the Jamestown J1000. Does anyone have any opinions on this stove? Also does anyone know of any other small pellet stove inserts that would fit into our fireplace? We are looking for something that built well and will last us a long time if possible. Thank you all so much for your help.
