First year of heating with wood. Currently have a Northern leader wood furnace. Have not been able to find any information on this stove. I do believe the company is no longer in business. Have a realitivly small home 1,200 square foot slab house. Current wood stove is in a seperate room on the oppisite side of the attached garage, with the heat being delivered to the house with duct work run in the attic. I was wondering if it is worth while to upgrade to the newer EPA certified stoves? From what I have read it will save some on the firewood, but will it also give a little longer burn time? What is the main difference from the wood furnaces they sell for $1,500 at the big box stores and the $4,000 you can find elsewhere? Also considering a wood boiler, but not sure about added benefits versus cost? I do have forty acres, but it is mostly poplar and pine, not real crazy about burning either. Can purchase logger cords for $65 a cord if 10 cord order or $70 if 5 cord order. Have used the online cost calculators and this saves me about 3/4 over what I am paying for electric baseboard heat.
