Hello. My preference is the blaze king but I’m 8 to 10 weeks out in receiving one in my area. I live in Massachusetts on the Rhode Island border. I could get a Hearthstone Clydesdale next week which, in Brown Enamel is a beautiful stove insert. I have concerns over the hybrid nature of the stove and have read some pros and cons in other threads? I think the Jury is still out on the Clydesdale do you think it’s worth it to take a chance on it considering the high price but yet it is available to me very soon? I would be new to wood-burning stoves as I had a pellet stove in the past. My home is a two-story center entrance colonial about 2300 ft.². For some reason my upstairs is generally always warm. I’m looking to heat the 1200 square-foot first floor. My kitchen and kitchenette area along with the dining room is over the unfinished part of my basement and is generally cold as there’s not enough baseboard heat. my wife is constantly cold and has Reynards disease so I need to maximize the heat on the first floor. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
