Mine isn't that fancy, and was about $40 less. It isn't as noisy as my 1500 watt electric heater, but you would hear it. I like hearing it, lets me know I'm getting something extra. I'll say the power consumption is very low, it's a small fan motor.

Have to agree about the earlier "bone warming heat" comment. I don't mind being outside in the cold when I know there's such warmth inside. Can't say that if I'm using the GFA only.

I'm installing a gas, wall mount heater to help the GFA, the wall heaters are 99.9% efficient. A bit old time looking, but the gas bill will make it look better.

There are a number of places that restore and resell old wood stoves. Here are some links.

We have a non-electric fan that uses the heat from the stove to operate. for a small unit it is suprisingly powerful.

Unfortunately our woodstove would be piped into the fireplace, so there would be no room to add a flue heater/recapture thingy.

You can run across Fisher and Timberline stoves in the ValleyTrader or the local classified paper. Sometimes I see the on Craigslist too. Fisher's always tend to run on the high side of proces though.

Google 'search tempest craigslist' and you can enter a search parameter for all craigslist listing within a specified range.

I just did a quick search of 'Fisher Wood Stove' within 250 miles of Clarksburg and came up with a baby bear and another Fisher model..

There's a Fisher "Grandma Bear" on eBay, located just south of Binghamton NY. Starting bid is $299. You'd have to drive there to pick it up.

The thing I like most about wood burning is the scent in the house. Dirty-- so is the garden, and the ashes are good for the garden.

Love those pics of winterwonderland and heading to south carolina tomorrow to avoid more of the same. Shiver me timbers.

Hey Snorpus, we are settling in wonderfully- got the garden bed put in and ready, have been out exploring our new home, and having a good time.

The photo with this story shows the car sitting in the traffic lanes of I-77/WV Turnpike.

The pictures below could have been better, but I stopped plowing just long enough to snap a couple.





The picture below is a 19th century church, in case someone at NBC thinks this is a WV home.
