I was looking around at the Woodstock webpage because it seems the Fireview is very well liked on here. I currently have a Nap 1450 stove with a blower to heat my upstairs - about 2200 to 2500 sq feet depending on if I close off certian rooms. The stove does the job, even in negative temps but I really have to push it. The result of the pushing is alot - I mean stove fulls of charcoal each day. Yes I have learned to deal with this, but it is not enjoyable. Just wondering if the fireview, being a cat stove would help with this problem? Also the 1450 can give off some pretty quick heat (about 30min from a cold start). Can the fireview do this or would I be looking at 1-2 hours of startup time? Thanks!
