Hello everyone, I’m currently looking to replace my pellet stove with a wood stove. Looking for some opinions on if you think I can fit a free standing stove inside my fireplace or if I should limit my search to just inserts. Fireplace is on an interior wall, main floor of a two story colonial. Fireplace measures 38” tall x 40” wide and 25” deep with a 16” pad in front. I checked out a regency 3500 but at a height of 36” I’m guessing it’s a bit too tall. I’m looking to use this full time to heat my home, currently the pellet stove I have installed heats my entire house, 1800sq ft. Here’s a current pic of my setup, pellet stove hooked up to a 6” liner. Any thoughts/opinions on what the best setup may be would be great! Thanks .
