My wife just told me that our fireplace insert is smoking from the sides, even with the door closed and honestly probably just needs to be replaces, as it has seen better days. I'm still deployed so I can't exactly go look for and buy a new one right now. I'm wanting to see if anyone has any experience with wood stoves and inserts who could give me some input on what brands to go with or stay away from. The wood stove is our primary source of heat since our furnace sucks. We also need new windows to replace the 70s era single pane ones that are currently at our house. Thinking stove first, then windows, since the stove will be cheaper. Thanks in advance! Oh yeah, house is tri-level 1980 sq ft built in 1979.
