Hello, all, newbie forum poster here. We're looking for a pellet stove to run as a secondary source on our first floor (approx. 850-1K sf) and up into our landing upstairs (approx 150 sf with cathedral ceiling). Our local retailers are showing the Harmon P43 and the Piazzetta Monia (Sabrina is too large). They're approximately the same price, installation is also same price no matter which.

If you had your druthers, which would you buy, and why? Any add-on's or option on either that are must-haves? Is there another American made pellet stove you would recommend instead for our situation?
