Hello all i am new to the website, and to burning wood for that matter. My wife and I are planning to install a wood burning fireplace in our home but the amount of options to choose from is a bit overwhelming. Some information with regards to the install. I plan to run a forced air kit to move heat to the basement ( directly below) and to the other side of the house (small 1200 sqf ranch) to help offset heating costs. Primary source of heat is electric heat pumps. Finding a unit that meets the EPA standard for the tax credit has been difficult. If anyone has recommendations it would be greatly appreciated. However this project is not contingent on the unit meeting that standard. 2 units we have been looking at are the Ambience Elegance, and Supreme Astra. I haven't come across any conversations with these units and wondering if there's a reason for that. Are these quality Fireplaces? good Manufacturers? Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
