Planning a new build in northern Ontario, a chalet style, open concept, cathedral ceiling home, approx 1200 sqft with a full insulated walkout basement. The plan is to have a pellet stove in the great room, which will be the primary heat source with electrical baseboards as backup. At first I was thinking the P68 would be an overkill for such small square footage and above average R values, but if you factor in the large open space living room with 7 large windows, 2 bedrooms in the loft and a full basement....plus long stretches of -40 windy lakefront days, maybe its not an overkill? I've read on here over sizing a pellet stove can be a mistake, curious what some Harman owners think? ...also would it be a better idea to put it in the basement or would enough heat make its way downward with fans etc.
