    Looking at buying a used Heritage stove. Tag on back says cartier 1 & 2 also petite. I think it's a 2 but don't know. Has anyone good or bad thoughts on this/these stoves. Heating 1200 ft up and down with stove in lower level and running furnace fan 24/7 to distribute air throughout. Looks in good shape. Also currently have a 40 yr old Fisher in excellent shape...any way of certifying these for insurance to approve? If not what's it worth...good for shop or camp.

    This is a used Hearthstone stove, not the Heritage which is another model. There are better, more modern solutions. Is a soapstone stove a priority? FYI Running the furnace fan 24/7 uses a lot of power. Wondering if there is a better and more efficient solution?

    We have an old Heritage Cartier 1 in an outbuilding. While small, it’s not a bad little heater. Has a bricked baffle and a bypass, but no secondary air tube. That said, the air can be cut back and I’ve definitely seen slow lazy secondary flames, just takes more hands on.

    The Cartier is probably much better efficiency than the fisher based on my experience.

    (It’s not a soapstone stove, these all-steel heritage models are fairly common in our neck of the woods up here in Ontario.)

    Thanks for the correction Nigel. Indeed there was a Heritage Cartier that was sold up north. I had forgotten about that old model.
    I moved the thread to the Classics forum where treefrog can find additional threads on the Cartier.
