EXTRA LARGE EPA CERTIFIED WOOD STOVE is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can heat an ENTIRE LARGE house Our family loves this stove! I have now owned this stove for over a year. There are only a couple of drawbacks that prevented a 5-star rating. Firstly, a part of the stove was not present when it was shipped. US Stove sent us the missing part for free as soon as we contacted them. Secondly, the air flow control plate fits so tightly, it is too difficult to move with the heat dissipating handle. We use a pair of pliers to move it. As I write this in the last week of February, I will correct the fit of the air vent once heating season is over. We live well outside of town, with no natural gas available in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. As of this writing it is 20 degrees Fahrenheit outside. Overnight temperature was 9 degrees. We have been heating our home exclusively with this stove since October. Our home is a 3000+ square feet brick ranch-style all on one level, excepting a room-over-the-garage. Heating our large home with propane cost several hundred dollars per month. My goal for this year was to estimate the yearly total amount of hardwood needed to heat my home using ONLY this stove. With the exception of a two-week vacation. We have heated our home exclusively with this stove and expect to continue to do so through the next six weeks when heating season will be over. From this experience I believe I can answer some questions for prospective buyers. Will the stove radiate heat through an entire 3000+ square foot house by itself? The answer is that it depends on the layout, and insulation. Heat wants to travel near the ceiling. If you have vents in the lintels (header above doors) then it probably will. If, like us, you don't then you may need a way to circulate the air. We use two 8-inch diameter fans such as those that would be on an office desk. Our installation has the stove on one side of the house, far from the bedrooms. Those two tiny fans are enough to move the heat throughout the house. Having good insulation also helps, as the heat will propagate throughout the insulation and then reflect back down into rooms with poorer air flow. I also plan to add small venting windows to the lintels. And in the case of a power outage, I could easily operate the fans using a battery and inverter. Will the neighbors notice smoke and the smell of fire? It depends on how you operate the stove. The trick with this stove is to keep it at the proper temperature. When the top of the stove is between 400-600 degrees Fahrenheit there will be no visible smoke leaving the chimney, and no smell of smoke, except when someone opens the stove door, such as to add wood. Should you have a 'magic heat' or some other fan integrated with the stove-pipe? I don't recommend that. I wouldn't consider it until very familiar with the stove and the fuel available in your area. I put a temperature gauge on the stovepipe to monitor temperature. I want my stovepipe to be above 250 F all the way out the top to prevent creosote. Your mileage may vary. Are fires easy to start? Yes, if your wood is properly dried, but there is a learning curve. I like the 'log-cabin' method. Shortly, the secret to burning hot, and efficient is air flow and proper fuel. It applies when adding fuel as well as when starting the fire. On the subject of air-flow: we had an initial problem with smoke coming out the door when starting fires. I added a 3-foot section to make the chimney taller, and that solved it. Start with the building code in your area. But be prepared to add height to the chimney if the air flow around your neighborhood requires it. Are there any accessories I consider absolutely necessary? Yes. A moisture meter and a large wood rack. Wood below 20% moisture is a must. Wood any wetter than that is hard to start, burns colder, and forms creosote. You'll also need a tarp to keep your wood dry. If you want to be self sufficient and prepare your own wood you'll also need a maul, and saws. I recommend using a manual maul, but containing many pieces of wood for splitting, such that it won't go flying when you strike it. An old truck tire works nicely. Do you need to put the fire out at night before bed? I don't. How much wood will you need? Hard to say. During this record cold spell we've been burning nearly 24-hours per day, with daily highs well below freezing and lows in the single digits. That has been using a large wheel-barrow full of wood daily. I believe that at the end of the year I will have used about 5 cords of wood. But I have acreage, and can easily store more than that. It is a large stove and will need a lot of fuel. If a year were significantly colder I'd need more. If warmer, then less. That is about all I can think of. We love the stove. The fires are romantic, and we've discovered we prefer radiant heat over central heating. There is also a feeling of security that we don't need to be overly concerned about winter power outages. Good Luck!
