Hello I am new here and looking to buy my first wood stove. I am looking for some advice on what stove people prefer. I have done a lot of research and I am pretty sure I will be going with something made by Travis Industries. Now let me tell you about what I will be heating. It is a 2400 sq ft 2 story colonial. The stove will be an insert for an existing masonry fireplace. The stove will be in a large open room with cathedral ceilings that is open to a large kitchen. There are 3 stoves I am looking into and they are the Lopi Freedom Insert, the Avalon Olympic Insert, and the Fireplace Xtrordinair Model 33 Elite Insert. If anyone has experience with any of these stoves give me your opinions. Thanks for the help.
