I agree totally but I did back my decision up with loads of research. Initially a friend was trying to sell me on the Hot Blast since they were so cheap, didn't take long to figure out that going with the cheapest furnace I could find was only going to escalate the fruatration in my battle with wood heat. The Drolet seemed to get good reviews and was at the top of my budget. I know it's not the best I could've gotten but it does seem like it will at least be efficient and warm my house finally. if I had found a way to fund the Kuuma there would be no money left for the install. from what I gather the biggest "issue" with the Drolet is remedied by adding a speed controller to the blower fan so it will run continuously at low RPM instead of constantly cycling. So long as it burns better than the Fire Chief I'll be happy lol. coming from an inefficient Fisher in the basement I am hopeful that there will be a night and day difference with heat distribution.
