Day 10 with my new Heatilator insert and I just could not be happier. You know, there's just certain things one may purchase that occasionally you second guess...... Well I can tell you all that this is one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. Money well spent and it feels good! My only regret is not doing it sooner. My house is consistantly 4-7 degrees warmer at all times than I ever kept it when I was burning oil, and I haven't turned the heat on once since the very first time I lit the first log 10 days ago. I have 3 acres of fuel right outside my back door, a pick-up truck, tractor, and a new chain saw all ready to feed this new love. Want to toss out a big thanks to all the contributers here who I secretely poached info from in my research leading up to making my decision to add a wood stove. Lots of good folks here. One of the most genuine forums I belong to. Here I sit toasty warm just after taking the dogs out for the last time tonight. Not terribly cold out at 36 degrees, but sitting in front of this stove with a nice dark beer sure feels good. Ain't life grand? Cheers!
