    Selkirk has a nice line of ZC's.

    If you are interested in EPA ZC you may also want to look at Valcourt http://www.valcourtinc.com/products.aspx?CategoId=20, There are 3 EPA models.

    Or you could look at Enerzone (through dealers only) http://enerzone-intl.com/product.aspx?CategoId=19&Id=446 or Osburn (through dealers or Internet retailers) http://www.osburn-mfg.com/product.aspx?CategoId=19&Id=439. Osburn has a promotion this month for $350 off the unit.

    Also on some of these units you can install a 'heat dump kit'. Basically a blower that hides behind the wall and turns itself on with a thermostat. You can program it for 2 zones depending which room you want to warm up first. Think of it of turning your ZC into a small furnace to heat up another area. The reason I mention this is one of the most common complaint of High-Efficiency ZC installed in a small to medium room is the room will get quite hot. So piping some of that heat somewhere else might be a good idea.

    Kozy has a good reputation and several users here. Odds are they won't be on the forum at this time of year, but do a search on Kozy for many posts on this fireplace. Haven't seen Selkirk's, but that doesn't mean too much.
