Hello Chrissmom, Unfortunately, we do not have an assembly service for this 1,800 Sq. ft. EPA Certified Wood Stove with Bay Front Glass On Legs with Blower. I believe the best advice would be to visit https://www.proreferral.com for assistance with this project inquiry. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.
The top will be 200-300 degrees or so. as an EPA certified stove, once burning it should not product any visible smoke.
There is a damper on the front right of the stove for adjustment
you need to provide 12 inches from the sides and back of the stove to a wall.
This stovee is 68% efficient.
The recommended wood size is 17 inches or less.
I am sorry for your troubles. It was the Monday after Thanksgiving. We have a few team members that are out sick. We have over 50 landlines and yes there are times when all can be busy. Our Technicians work hard to resolve issues quickly but sometimes they can be tied up on a call for an extended period of time. We offer a Texting service as this allows a tech to handle an additional conversation to assist. Our team works hard to handle the call volume. We also have a remote parts ordering team but their call center was disconnected much of the day due to weather. This forced that additional volume onto our support call center. Again I am sorry you were delayed and not pleased with the levels of service we provide. I will forward this "question" on to our teams.
This unit has air intakes and there is no way to force fresh air into the stove.
This stove will probably not work for that application. you may want to look at the TR004. However neither of these two stoves have the Fresh air intake when installed as an insert.
