I am in upstate NY and was looking at a St. Croix SCF-050 for some additional heat in the basement of my house. I have been heating my house almost entirely with a Harman 43 (on first floor) for about 3 years now. Figured having heat on both ends of the house would even things out. Can you tell me what your experiences has been with the SCF-050? Quality of the unit? Is it possible to hook this up to a thermostat to control temp? A local dealer is asking $2000 for one. Is this a reasonable price for the unit NIB? Thanks!
