First time posting. My husband and I recently decided pellet stove insert is the way to go to help with heating our home. We have a 6,000 sq ft house with over 70 windows. Our family room is two story. We live in Maryland where there are 3-4 very cold months. Last year our heating system (which is new) just couldn’t keep up and it was freezing in our house and we burned approx $1,000/month in propane from our boiler. We can’t do that again. So last week I went to our local Ace Hearth and Home and purchased a pellet insert, but when they did the site visit they said we need 2 more inches of non combustible material, which would require altering our mantle. They sent me a few other options that would work, but none qualify for the energy tax credit. So here I am looking for a low clearance pellet stove that has more of a contemporary look and in stock bc we are looking to install by end of year. Our opening is 46” wide and 30.5” tall, 37” to the wood trim. I would love a wood insert but I was told bc our surround is made of wood we would have to rip all that out. Does anyone have suggestions for a low clearance pellet stove that would work in this space and also puts out at least 51,000 btu? Thank you!
