    Englander NCI or Regency I2400

    Not sure this is apples to apples, but I am trying to decide between the Englander wood insert or the regency I2400. The concern is the size of the firebox and whether it will provide enough heat. It looks like the regency firebox is about a third bigger. Also the regency seems to have a...
