    Please try and help make a difficult decision easier, we are looking to add a standing stove to our living room, we would like to primarily use it as a gas/propane stove, but we would like the availability to use it as a wood burning stove in an emergency, ie: no propane. Would it be easier to install a propane stove, with specific venting that would also support a wood stove, or should we install a wood stove, convert it to gas, then be able to convert it back to wood if need be? Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.


    Neither..no stove is going to do what you want. The stoves and venting are completely different. One hint might be to install a class A chimney..at least this chimney would support either fuel, but you'd still have to switch the stove
