My first time on this forum, it's a wonderful resource. My problem is our good old kodiak that has heated our house fine since we moved in 7 years ago has cracked and we want to replace it. We thought the Hampton Wood insert H1300 would be a good choice. Our house is a capecod, about 1700 sq ft. Does anyone want to give us an opinion on this model or give us a suggestion on another type of insert? We are relative new to wood heat. My Dad used coal and my husband's from the Jersey suburbs and is new to pulling your heat out of the woods with a draft horse. But he is a good learner and has cut on split all our wood for 5 years now, but we have no clue as what stove is better for our house. We need a local dealer, we live in Berks county PA.
