Has anyone had good luck with wood stoves for heating purposes? I have been looking into getting one for my four season porch and have heard good things about QuadraFire and have been looking at their wood stoves here: http://www.quadrafire.com/browse/stoves/wood-stoves.aspx  Any experience with these?

It is not really a good idea to add a normal wood burning stove to an existing furnace, but they make wood/oil combination furnaces designed specifically for this purpose. In most cases you would simply be able to switch furnaces and upgrade your chimney for about the same price as a wood stove and chimney. You should be able to "trade in" your existing furnace for the wood/oil furnace, lowering the cost

Niice information.Thanks for share withus.Well, I think Fisher wood stoves are excellent stoves. Not made anymore, don't think they were certified, but they are workhorses. Papabear can be loaded 2x a day, takes decent sized logs, and you can cook on it too. Not fancy like the ones you buy today, these stoves are made to throw some heat & last several lifetimes.
