We are putting a wood stove in the basement of the house we bought and the more we try to research the further we get from a decision. The House: Is 1150 sq ft upstairs and down (2300 sq ft floor area) with a basement walkout. It is a newer log home located in central Ontario, Canada. Cold long winters. We were originally looking into a Napoleon wood stove as they are made locally but were put on to Pacific Energy (also made in Canada) and highly recommended by a few people. We have come across a few of these stoves for sale used and are considering them. We have a chance to buy a used Pacific Energy Super 27 that is 15 years old with a brand new blower and baffle for $1000 (enamel finish, gold door) or a Pacific Energy Summit that is one year old for $1800 The Super 27 says it heats up to 2000 sq ft and the Summit up to 3000 sq ft. We have FAO heat but want to heat with wood as much as possible and want as long a burn time as possible. Any advice/ other brands to consider/ advice about used stoves? The cheaper the better but we will pay for the "right" stove new or used.
