fireplaces

Question

bhs91

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,

BHS

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

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
