Hi. New to the forum here. Great source. I'm recently bought my 2nd home. My first home was very small (800 sq. feet) and we had a Quadrafire pellet stove which worked fine for that house. Now, I'm in a larger 1400 sq. foot split level home. We spend most of our time on the main level where we currently have a corner free standing fireplace. I want to replace that with a pellet stove, and I was looking at the St. Croix Hasting model. I can get a really good deal on one for about $2200. My concern is this will be going in the main living room where we spend most of our time watching TV. I've heard that this can be a loud unit. I'm wondering how loud it may be? In my old house, the quadrafire never went above the low setting, plus it was in another room, so the noise didn't bother me. I'm just wondering how much this unit will bother me since it will only be about 10 feet from my couch. Unfortunately my dealer doesn't have one hooked up, so I'm unable to test it, but I don't want to pass up this deal. The person who ordered it had to cancel, so he's giving me about $500 off. My other option was an Avalon newport, but it was closer to $3000. Suggestions? Thanks.
