We recently bought this add on wood furnace. It works so well I could seriously get rid of my gas furnace. Now, they rate is for 3000 square feet. I would not say it would do an average 3000 square foot house. Maybe if your house was built within the last 10 years and is very well insulated. I am heating 1250 square feet upstairs. The furnace is downstairs and ties right into the ducting very easily. It also heats my basement too so I guess its about 2500 square feet overall. The blower pushes air through the ducting upstairs, and the basement is heated by the left over radiant heat. So happy about that, no more freezing basement. This stove weighs a lot because its built strong. We looked at the Hot Blast units from tractor supply. Those are a definite step down from what we have now.
Obviously the $3000 units are probably going to be more efficient, but I am very please so far. I foresee 20 years of usage from this, and no doubt I will probably have to replace the blower and some firebrick in that time but that's understandable.

this is a very good furnace. Simple to operate and heats our 2800 ft house very easily. We've always heated with wood and have some experience in that area. We lived in Maine thru some pretty wicked weather and I wish we had had this furnace there. This is the easiest furnace ( or freestanding stove) to start a fire and keep it burning that we've ever had. It burns well and holds coals about 8 hours. I would recommend this furnace to anyone. The service department at Englander was very helpful when we called for questions

I purchased this unit in July to replace an inefficient wood stove. I installed it myself and found it to be pretty straightforward. I ran the duct work to 3 floor registers that I had in place from my previous wood stove. This thing pumps out heat like crazy. starting a fire was a breeze, the blower is noticeable but it's by no means "loud" as some of the other reviews stated. I've noticed very little smoke coming from my chimney which tells me I'm getting a clean burn. My old stove smoked like a freight train. It's a chilly 43 degrees out as I write this and it's in the 80's in my home! almost time to open up a window! If you want lower heating bills, or no heating bills at all, BUY ONE!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bruce great furnace
works great built well really heats well blower is very powerful. now have plenty of heat at the back of house ,pleased with noise level of blower quieter than my hot air furnace. fire seems to last well havent been able to run a full load hasnt been cold enough this puts out a ton of heat havent used close to as much wood as normal this time of year only reason i rated quality as good is poor fit of smoke pipe in the back fits loose and had to drill holes to be able to secure pipe with screws used high temp sealant to fill void around pipe

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WoodBurner28 Great stove at a great price
I've only burned a few fires in the stove, but have no complaints so far. The firebox is big so you can fit a lot of wood in there. The glass door is probably my favorite feature, I like being able to check on the fire without having to open the door. The blower seems to move a lot of air, but I have yet to really test it's ability during really cold times. Mine got a few dents near the top on the side during shipping. This doesn't affect the operation, is only cosmetic, and Home Depot still gave me a discount.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MGoBlue So far so good
I have only been using the wood furnace for a couple weeks so far and we have not gotten to the really cold weather yet but it is lived up to the hype so far. I have been able to get the house up to 75 starting from 60 with no problems. Pretty easy to install even for someone that does not have the most skills like myself. I was able to do the chimney as well as connecting the furnace to the existing ductwork.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Smart purchase for us
This is AMERICAN MADE, it doesn't get any better than that folks. This model was so easy to set up, along with the Dura Plus black pipe and the wood stove heat indicator (also sold by Home Depot). We have a five (5) room cape and this baby provides all the warmth we need for New England weather. Just a word of caution - it's heavy, very heavy. You'll need at least three grown men to muscle this beauty into place. Also, the learning curve for using fuel - wood, bio bricks, etc., take a while so you don't go through your fuel supply in a week. Learn how to set the bottom and top dampers along with "banking" your fire. Once you have that under your belt, you're off and running for a nice warm house. Just one more thing - be sure to follow all codes and instructions that come with your unit. The heat given off by this unit shouldn't be a hazard to flammable walls, ceilings and nearby objects. Also be advised that you'll end up cleaning out the ash draw a lot, so have a metal bucket and metal trash can available. Just be mindful of the small burning embers in the ash sometimes.
