How about 2500 sq ft with a 16 ft stud against 3000 sq ft with an 8 ft stud or it could be just marketspeak ;D

I have no idea but here's some possibilitys....

(1) One house could belong to Marcel up in Canada, and one could belong to me in Mississippi.

(2) Both houses are next door to each other...one got twice the insulation in the attic.

(3) one is a ranch style and the other is two story.... ;) :D ;D  

I have an ole Kodiak that just won't wear out...so i will never get to get a new stove.  Tim

Maybe one that heats 3000 sq. ft. has a blower on it  vs. one that gives off radiant heat.

Or maybe somebody lied on the brochure........that seems unlikely though :D :D

What brand of stoves are these and where are you getting the numbers from?  As with all statistics, the numbers can be manipulated very easily.  Length of burn time during measurement seems to be favorite one they mess with when calculating the numbers you are looking at.

They both sound like free standing wood stoves, that move some air away from the stove.  What do you have to move air around the house?

What you will get in heat will depend on the moisture content of the wood you are burning. The less moisture, the more heat per pound of wood you can get.

Also, will depend on how often you put wood in it, and how good the chimney and its draft ends up.

I started out with an Ashley 'bout 35 yrs ago. Good starter stove. Decided heating a space wasn't the way I wanted to go, so switched to heating water and pumping it around the house (already had the system in place).
