i have a 1600 sq. ft. home and i wondered what stove would be a good fit? It would be in a corner of the living room. What is needed for a floor, and exhaust pipe? Who installs them and what would be an approximate price? Are they better than a gas

Our Answer:

For the money, you'll be able to get a wood stove that is capable of producing about twice as many BTUs as a gas burner. Also, wood is our only renewable energy resource. You will not have a monthly bill if you install a wood stove but there is a bit more work involved. On the other hand, with a gas unit, you'll never have to cart in firewood. As a general rule, we recommend 35 BTU per square foot. For your application, a unit capable of around 56k BTU would suffice. Venting components could cost around a few hundred dollars or more. That, of course, depends on your installation. You'd hire a local contractor to install these appliances. Install costs would vary.
