Looking at putting in a wood stove as supplemental heat source, thinking of putting in basement and possibly floor vents to help heat upstairs as well. Question is, which stove would be good for that and can it have a mantel/heat insert put around it?

Our Answer:

Free standing wood stoves can be placed into a noncombustible alcove, but it is best to leave them in an open space to allow best thermal efficiency. How much square footage would the unit ideally heat? Addition of a convection blower would help with heat distribution, but it is also important to size the stove correctly for best results.
