gonna have a boiler with in floor heat for my primary system
but I'm thinking it might be nice to keep some chill off during the shoulder seasons (aka summer here in alaska) and also to preserve my fuel tank during real cold spells
we're building pretty small and it's going to be our "home" so I was looking at the sealed combustion fireplaces with a blower to save a little floor space and keep the pipe in an external chase
has anyone had one of these? I'm thinking you'd get better heat with the stove just because of the stove's thermal mass inside the house....... but does anyone have firsthand experience?
