Hey ya'll! My name is Steven and my wife and I recently purchased a home in the Knob Noster, MO area. The home is heated by an air source heat pump with an electric backup, and with the temps in the low teens (single digits with the wind chill), the heat pump doesn't seem to be doing it's job. I would like to install a pellet stove to keep the home warm between dusk and dawn, but I have several concerns. Best case, I'd like to tie something in to the existing duct work and sit downstairs, but that seems prohibitively expensive. The home is about 3150 sq ft with a full basement, and the basement is roughly 80% finished. The furnace/air handler are centrally located in the middle of the floor plan downstairs. I have two sump rooms, one located across a 3' wide hallway from the air handler. Alternatively, the stove could be installed upstairs, but there is no good place to put it. All of the exterior walls in the main rooms have very wide windows (72" or exterior doors), and only about 3-4' of wall space before joining an interior wall. The living room, dining room, and kitchen are all one relatively large, open floor plan, but the master bedroom and bath are separated by an interior wall. My wife and I spend most of our time upstairs, and the basement does a pretty good job of regulating itself. We are looking for a stove for around $2000 that will keep the upstairs area around 70* overnight. Any suggestions you guys have will be greatly appreciated!
