    Here's my new stove for my basement. A perfect space heater for 1,000 square feet. Not as much fun as a wood burner, but also alot easier and no mess.

    I am looking into what I think is a smaller version of that heater. It has 8000 btu output and can be mounted on a shelf. It will be installed in my son's sun-room addition. Due to all the Andersen windows I may have a clearance issue with the direct vent termination on the outside of the building. The stove itself can get pretty close to combustibles. Let us know how you like it.

    I have been using this stove since November or so. My comments are. Relatively quick to warm up...about 1.5 hours although it heats through the glass immediately. The remote has a thermometer. Recommended...although, interestingly enough, I'm not sure that I've ever done anything with the remote in terms of programming. There is a manual switch to raise flame height or lower incrementally down to pilot flame only mode. I think the stone is pretty and overall a good looker...although my Hearthstone is prettier with it's enameled paint and polished stone.

    In terms of heat output, this one keeps a 1,000 sq foot basement warm...about 80+ by the stove and about 75 across the room. The glass stays clean. The stove is very convenient to use. No lighting it as it's always on with the pilot.

    I am pleased and would buy it again. If I move, this is coming with me.

    My budget...$1250 factory demo, about $750 on pipe, about $800 on install although I do taxes for the pipefitter, so that's on trade.

    The littler one should be the same stove...albeit for a smaller space. about 1/3rd the BTU output of this one. The stove pipe for that one should cost about half according to the brochure I've read on the stove your considering.
