Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linda Best investment ever
Read so much on woodstoves and decided this one fit everything. We are heating a 2000 sqft double wide. Took some getting used to but with the help of some awesome websites we are learning to keep temps around 74-78. Bedroom alittle cooler, it is the furthest away, but even that is 65. Between Englanders tech support and Home Depot customer service this was the right choice. The blower it comes with is loud but not something we cant live with for now. You can order a different kind. Sure don't miss the old "for looks only" fireplace we took out. And as you can see the dogs love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PotteryPeople We LOVE this wood burning Stove
Our house has never been warmer!!! We (my husband) installed the stove and chimney ourselves. Can't say enough good things about this stove. Wish we had gotten it years ago. Good bye propane bills! We will never go back! On top of everything else it is so beautiful and comforting to sit by the fire and share the day.
Our master bedroom is off the kitchen so I put a small fan on top of the fridge aiming into the room and it circulated the warm air even to that end of the house.
Get one of these stoves you will not regret it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zeke better than i expected
I purchased this wood stove after reading previous comments about it being good. I heat a 2200+ sq foot house easy. I can get it over 80 c in my house with no problem. Easy install and the inside was bigger than i thought. Only problem is the blower its alittle loud but it helps. Takes some time to get use to but if you cut it down at night the wood will last 7+ hrs easy. Had the same fire going for over a week. Worth the money

We burned it off outside before bring it in the basement so we have zero complaints about the smell. This is a well made top notch stove and we couldn't be more pleased. Very easy to start with starter logs.
And so far we have kept it burning night and day with no problems. So far it keeps our up stairs around 70. The basement is well insulted and completely finished. It is Dukes favorite spot now (see the picture below).
We are ready to take a big bite out of our propane bill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nick613 Great stove
When my wife and I sat down and compared the Englander and a competing model from Lowes, we looked at all the pros and cons and found the Englander had a 3.5 square feet box, compared to the 1.5 at Lowes. Also the Englander is made in Virginia and the other in Canada. Once we installed it, we ran a fire for 12 hours on Thanksgiving. This brought our house up to 81 degrees while the outside temp was in the 30's. The next morning it was still 60 degrees in the room. It also comes with a blower, which circulates the warm air off of the unit. A fire was easy to start in the unit. The only negative is it weighs 475 pounds, so bring 3 friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spyke Good capacity.
I have been using this stove as primary heat source for three years now. I start burning in late November and keep a fire going 24/7 until april. This stove has no problem heating my 2500 sq ft W Michigan home with the aid of the AC-30 blower. Stove is located in finish basement and have thru vents in floor to heat entire home. I load up at night and plenty of hot coals in the am. The stove is very durable and finish is still in great shape.
Advice: If you want to maintain good finish do not let anything touch it when its hot. Keep off the kettle of hot water (you will get a rust ring) buy a humidifier.
First few burns you will need to have windows open and keep the fire small.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joseph Good wood stove.
We have had this stove for just over 1 year. we had a cast iron wood stove that had many cracks regularly filling with stove cement to keep it useable. 2 years we had used 2.5 chord of wood. we finally got rid of it and purchased the new Englander 2200 sq. ft. it was a longer and colder winter by far and we used 4.5 chord. Im summing it up as the same amount of wood usage due the to extreme cold long winter. I have not bought heating oil for 3 years and am proud to say that. Getting my firewood for free is a big plus. There are pros and cons, I would say with any stove. I like the appearance, it is attractive, heats well, burns efficiently. inside ceiling of chamber looks like a gas grill burner, burns the extra gases more efficiently. The ash pan is rather useless, BUT I fill it with ash and leave it, that way the bottom does not heat up the floor underneath.( I had that problem with the old stove, the hearth mat stuck to the carpet underneath when we pulled it up)(now have a custom hearth with 2x4's/cement board/ porcelain tile- very nice 60x60- 6 sided) I had to get used to the damper thinking had to have damper in the chimney, ending up taking the damper out of the chimney. all the way closed for over night, and half inch open or inch open for daytime while at home, (or fully closed if too warm) My damper never has been stuck at all (referring to another review) slides perfect every time. The door handle should have a stop on it so it does not turn 270 degree around to the 6 o clock position. The inside latch stick out and I've stuck my arm on it and burnt my arm almost a dozen times. so I try to swing the door more open when loading. I find that the "racks" inside top, that hold the tiles for after burn of the gases are too low and I hit wood onto them often. and in turn have had to replace inside upper tiles yearly. (I wonder if can use a porcelain tile? because the existing ones break easy when a stick or something jams upward. I try to load it gently, but I also know im not the one that broke them LOL. other family members wont admit to it as well. Last year they replaced the tile at no charge. I believe it is a minor issue. The wood stove is still beautiful and looks like new. Yes you MUST burn a few fires thru the wood stove outside before you use it, the new paint burning off is toxic, this is the same with any woodstove. including your stove pipe. I even took out all the firebricks to get the bottom 8" of paint to get hot as I noticed it wouldn't without doing so. it wont hurt it at all, just don't get it cherry red. over all I would recommend this wood stove with a letter grade of an A. being 95% satisfied. I heats my 28x72 mobile home all winter. I will never buy oil again!! ( Ill post a pic after this post) very pretty

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WoodFam Long lasting, hot fire-fast!
We love this stove! We heat a 2000 sq ft house with this stove. After more than 10 hours, there are still plenty of coals to start a fire - a fire that starts up fast and hot so there's no "cool" time while we wait for warmth. Stove takes wood sideways or front to back and has a huge firebox. Our only advice is to buy a stove glove with long sleeves because sometimes there are too many coals and they will be very hot. And buy an ash bucket, too. We couldn't be happier with this stove. Efficiency, heating capacity and firebox match all the top stove makers. Can't believe any of the more expensive stoves could do a better job. And the box made a great fort for our granddaughter.
