Wood Stoves for house
« on: November 04, 2017, 07:52:09 PM »
For the life of me I can't find the Virtual Campfire thread???

I'm in Bonney Lake, not in the Tacoma Pierce restricted zone, i'm very interested in a wood stove to heat my home. Where do I shop, what do I need to know?

Thanks all

I don't like the tinkling lol there's something very cool.about having an actual wood fire heating your home.

I'll have my wife look up the name of the outfit we bought ours from. They did the installation and two repair calls in the first year and then bailed on the free cleaning they offered at the 12 month mark. I wouldn't recommend them

I'd start by looking up the stove shops in your area. Lots of quality brands out there. Even some of the more affordable stoves have a good reputation for functioning well with maybe less visual frills. Don't get a chinese-made stove.
The greatest stove in the world will disappoint if you feed it crap for wood. Dry wood makes all the difference.
If you Google "wood stove forums" there's 2 sites that will come up and provide you with hours of reading.

I ordered mine on line, itís a Blaze King made in Walla Walla. Certified and efficient stove, it has been a great, bought it in 2002. I installed it myself and itís burning at this moment.

I installed a lopi liberty in our house this year, almost to much stove for the house but man it is nice to use, heats very well and controlled, extremely well built, and they build em over in mukilteo I believe. I bought mine used off Craigslist and did the install myself, you can buy all the stuff online or in stores youíd need like pipe and flashings and the like. relatively simple for the install if a guy has a basic knowledge of framing or building construction.

If you want a free standing stove take this man's advice.
Blaze king won't let you down.
Always go one size bigger than you think you should.

How long do the new, efficient stoves keep a fire?  Can you choke it down to last 12 hours or more?

I just put a couple year old Blaze King in my house. Its a bigger stove, meant for a 2400 SF house or so. I stuffed it full and it burned for 9 hrs the other night. I woke up, opened the damper and filled it back up and it took off.

12 hrs might be a stretch...

Are you sure yours is the "King"?

They have a huge fire box, crank out a ton of heat, and are efficient.

That's actually not a bad price at all, a touch over my wholesale cost.  Depending on Brand, you won't find it much cheaper, it's expensive stuff.
Look for used if your looking to save $$$, I see some good used prices on craigslist occasionally.

I had some real good dry maple last winter that I could get ten hours under the right conditions. That's the longest ive ever been able to achieve.

I ask because with old stoves 12 hours is no problem with average wood.  Iíve used a few efficient stoves and it seemed to me that you canít restrict the burn as much.  Iím curious if my experience is accurate or not?

Oldies are best...  My Schrader  barely holds 4 pieces of 16"- wood and burns all night.  Heck I have had coals at noon.  Heats this house to point of opening window, 1600sqft.  Not certified of course.  Bought a new one in the old house in 2007.  Crap.  Crap.  Best I can come up with sorry.  Replace baffles, replace fans, replace seals etc.  No thanks, rather have baseboards. :twocents:

All depends on how big and what kind. The catalytic stoves can run on low for a long time.

I've had neighbor's before with pre-EPA stoves who choked them down for a long burn. I'm glad I don't anymore.
I look at it like this. With a newer stove and dry wood, you can still throttle it down. But the smoke will burn in the top of the box causing more heat and cleaner emissions.

I have a lopi endeavor and am very happy with it. That said my brother recently bought a blaze king and he gets over 24 hours of burn time out of it.  His stove is simply amazing.  I was actually pretty happy with the 12 to 13 hours i was getting until he got his stove.  Highly recommend you check out blaze king stoves.

I just put in a Quadrafire 7100 into a new house and love it.  I have been thinking of doing a review of it on here, one of these days...

I'm not sure if they still sell them, but last time I was in Cutters Supply in Enumclaw, they sold wood stoves.
