Hi! I have been reading many threads on here and my head is spinning with all the different brands and models to choose from. I decided to post and ask for suggestions. I have a 2 story house and will be using an existing fireplace and chimney. (Outside wall). I am open to using an older model stove, but if new, it would have to be a lower cost model. I am hoping to have a glass window that will stay clean, heat 1400+ sq ft (using to off set cost of running furnace), has a relatively quiet but powerful blower, has 8+ hours of burn time, and does not go through large amounts of wood/efficient/ low smoke emission. I do not mind changing out gaskets and firebricks, even repainting, but major repairs would be difficult for me, so it would have to be low maintenance. It would be nice if I could boil water, or even cook in a dutch oven on it. It could have the surround shield or just be a freestanding unit in the fireplace. I like both looks. Has anyone found a gem similar to what I am looking for that they could not live without (newer or older model)? Lopi stoves have piqued my interest but open to any. Thank you!
