Here is a pic of my Earth Stove by Colony Hearth.  As you can see it is free-standing, and is located central to the house.  It is a real workhorse, smiting high utility bills.  I am not sure if they are made anymore, but you could not get a better stove.  This one has been heating my house for 25 years.

WDH,

How much wood do you need to heat a house in GA for a season?  I wouldn't think very much, but you guys do get snow and frost once in a while.

Just Curious ;)

Tim,

I use about 3 cords.  With 2 stoves and women who like to stay warm, we probably use a little more than most folks around here. 

It was 18's here last night, requiring both stoves going full tilt.

18 :o  That's about what it was last night here in Michigan.  :o

Is that 3 full cords or 3 face cords?  I burn about 3 - 4 cords to heat my 2000 sq ft house all winter here in SE MI.  I only have 1 stove.  I guess feeding the 2 beasts burns a little more too.

I have 4 of the female persuasion in my house.  Their favorite place is about 4' from the stove.

We have an Encore and I think it is useless. It is far too small to heat with, logs have to be split small to fit in the top loader and the converter is a joke. I had the chimney built to the specs of the stove and the draft is poor until you get the stove up to temp, then it burns too quickly even when shut down.

Next time I would buy a larger sideloader, probably a Dutchman.

I have a Wood Chuck forced air furnace about 3 or 4 winters on it now. Love the thermostatically controlled burn. Takes about 5-6 cord to heat 1600 sq. ft.  burning 24/7 from Nov. 1  to  sometime in April.

I've been heating with a Jensen add on furnace for over 20 yrs. now.  Boy that thing has really save on the oil bill.  We have a pretty tight house at about 2200 sq. ft and basement.  Had the window and doors open more than once to cool the place down.  When we first moved into this place people would come in the winter and keep their coats on while here. Now people make sure not to wear to much when visiting.
