Understanding that burn time is always relative to the heat loss of the house. Burn time at 40º is going to be much better than at 10º. When the fireplace is being pushed for heat, the burn time could drop to 4 hrs.

It's good that you are taking the time to explore options. Call around to local dealers too. Maybe someone has an FP30 they are trying to move.

Used or perhaps a new one that a customer backed out on. It never hurts to ask.

Just curious, what are they asking for the FP30?

FP16 is 1.6 sf firebox. Way too small

Enjoy your new ZC fireplace! I think you're going to be running it hot and hard to provide enough heat for a house the size of yours, but at least that should ensure you're burning clean.

For a lt of the time it will be ok. When it gets extra cold outside it can act as a supplement to the primary heating system.

These pacific energy products are built for canadian winters , my pennsylvania winter has nothing on canadas;lol
They are built in Duncan, British Colombia which has a maritime pacific climate. It's pretty mild.

Its going to work perfect in my size home! Thanks for your concern though
Glad you think so. Have fun loading it every 4 hours or so. Hope you have patience to burn the coals down and run the main house heater while that is going on. Can't say you weren't warned.
