Heat It Up!

Jeff ordered our heat source for the sunroom last week and picked it up yesterday afternoon!  We kept going back-and-forth between a wood stove, actually running heating and air out there, and a stove that runs on gas.  Surprisingly enough, we settled on the ProCom Duel Fuel Stove that runs on either propane or gas.

We decided against the wood stove, despite serious consideration, due to the extra costs (the actual stoves are around $400, but the blowers you need to operate them are $200-300 more) and the visual look of having the blower running up and out of the side of our ceiling/roof.

We plan to have a set of pocket doors between the kitchen and sunroom, so we can easily open them during the winter months to have the stove help heat the rest of the house (it can heat 1000 square feet, so it should definitely be able to help out our HVAC).


I am so glad we decided on this one!  Now the question is whether or not this would be able to sit on top of our planned cork flooring... Any thoughts on fire hazards?
