Last fall I built an addition on our home and decided on the Warm Majic II fireplace, which is the same as the Northstar and the quadfire pioneer II. Some great info on this site helped me determine sizing the fireplace chase and some of the other smaller less talked about details. Overall this is an awesome fireplace, throws A TON of heat, quite easily heats our 2100ish sq ft ranch house, the room it is in gets about 74 with the farthest back bedroom about 69, perfect for sleep. Seems far more efficient than other wood stoves I have used, most likely because it is actually in my living area rather than being in the basement. The blower throws a lot of air on high, can be a tiny bit noisy but really not distracting. The secondaries are an absolute show and burns off almost everything before going up the chimney. I am a bit anal when it comes to burning, so i have a k type thermocouple installed about a foot the exit of the stove to show true flue temp, works absolutely awesome and takes every bit of guess work out of it for my wife during the day. I also replace the one fan switch for a switch that came be a off timer as well for when i load it up overnight but know i wont need the fan all night long. Here are some pics, if anyone is thinking of buying this series of fireplaces i cant recommend it enough. If you have any questions on install or anything lmk, I know its sometimes hard to find GOOD answers, even from the "pros".
