Hi everyone. Awesome website. I've been reading the great info on this site on and off for several years but I've been paying closer attention the last few months since I'm getting a wood burning insert for the fireplace. Time to stop lurking and post something. We've recently moved into a house (1600sqft, somewhat open floorplan) with a fireplace so its time to move into the modern era of burning wood. I've ordered an Enviro Kodiak 1700 since it was recommended to me by my installer as being a good alternative to an Avalon. However, this insert has only been out for a short time and I haven't been able to find much "real world" info on it. It also seems like a great value at $1600 with many features included in higher priced inserts....2.5 cu ft firebox,1000 to 2200ft heating area, 8-12 hour burn, 20" logs, 75% efficiency, etc. The blower is included in the price. I was really interested in the thermal mass of the Hearthstone Clydesdale but it was $2100 without the blower and had a smaller firebox. I was recently told by the stove dealer that it'll be at least January until I see my insert. I spoke with Enviro and they have sold every unit of every model that they make and have been working 24/7 for a few months already. So I might be considering alternatives. My installer has suggested a Napoleon insert as another option. I have my old Vermont Casting Resolute (circa 1990) to use until the insert comes. If anyone has any thoughts on the Enviro or other inserts I'd appreciate the feedback. Like I said, I have been reading the postings a lot lately so no need to repeat recent info. Great new look for the site! Thanks in advance.
