Hi Folks - we are currently looking to convert our open fireplace to either an insert or freestanding fireplace. The local place that can install for us has limited options. Right now we’re looking at the Enerzone Destination 2.3 I don’t like the idea of a blower but realize with an insert we will have to use one. We are ideally heating about 2200 square feet - the insert will be centrally locates and we are located in Southern Maryland. Any thoughts on how well this thing may do? I signed to order that one then had second thoughts about doing a hearth extension and trying to get a freestanding stove rated for about 100,000 BTUs in there - they don’t seem to have options available that could fit our opening (38.5 inches high) other than a Manchester rated at 78,000 BTUs. The Manchester is more expensive - but would provide more radiant heat and the quiet, the Enerzone is rated at 75,000BTU. I’m torn - suggestions or solutions!
