My first post. We'll be demolishing the fireplace in our mobile home and the local reseller of a major brand wood stove (retired fire chief - if that counts) claims we'll be able to heat most of the house. My thinking is that the stove, in the living room, would have to be so hot that it would be more than uncomfortable to heat whole the house. Having the stove produce just enough heat so that it's comfortable to be in the living room/dining area seems to me near impossible for that heat to reach the back bedrooms. Thoughts/suggestions appreciated. L.
