fireplaces

8 posts in this topic

Just looking to supplement heat down in the basement and wondering about quality brands of freestanding fireplaces. Checked out Lopi with a local company but also wanted to check out some others. All told my budget is $3000.00 for fireplace and installation. Any help, tips would be appreciated.

Thanks,

BHS

Do you want a fireplace, wood stove, or add on furnace?

A tip may be fireplaces accually lose more heat up the flue than other types of heat.when not in use interior air escapes up the flue,when in use they yet draw other interior air to feed fire,so in immediate area of fire its warm,but the chimney draft draws heat out of surrounding areas.

I had a Lopi installed at the cabin and couldn't be happier.

I would recomend getting a blower installed also, it really moves the hot air into the room. The stove seems very efficient, burns the wood to where there is hardly any ash to remove after 10 days of constant burning during the Wisconsin rifle season.

Just looking for a free standing stove. Just to compliment the furnace and be able to heat the house with that in the spring and fall when it is a little brisk out.

Thanks,

Lopi is a good product!!!!!! I build masonry fireplaces for a living and know that most sealed wood burning units do well for heat. Send me a email if you need to answera to more ?. bob at rglarson.com.

I used to have a Lopi in the first home I owned and heated the whole place with it for 4 years. Could stuff enough wood into it and damper it down enough that it would burn all day or all night with no problem ( with oak ). stove was still in great shape when I sold the home and they are still using it now 10 years later

      Thanks Kunzi, that's is exactly the type of feedback I am looking for.  I didn't now Batteries + carried them now.  I was in there a year or two ago and they said they had stopped carrying them due to quality issues.  They must have worked those out.  Please post what brand/model you bought and how your test goes.    Thanks!

      Love my munchkin. I have mine set up as a spear shack.    One thing i do I do wish is that it pulled better with my snowmobile. Works great behind the wheeler but if I need to use the snowmobile I have major issues. Need to have studs added to make it work in the future.
