I am installing a woodstove in the basement of my 1300 sq. ft. house. The basement is 24x24 with the staircase on the opposite side of where I will be placing the stove. The staircase leads up into the kitchen that has a ceiling fan. The kitchen leads into the dining room and living room where there is another staircase going upstairs. I have narrowed my decision down to the Heritage or the 4300. The Heritage is in the running because I have found a one year old used one for $1200. I am looking for feedback as to which stove I should go with. I know The Heritage is a prettier stove to be putting in a basement. However, for the price I can't help but put it in the running. I know the Quadrafire is going to throw more heat faster but the Heritage holds the heat better over a longer period of time. Given this dilemma, I'm torn and am not sure what to do. Any suggestions/advice?
