I felt compelled to write about my 4400 stove I bought from Arnie’s in Rice, Minnesota back in 2006. I can’t think of the words to describe how much I love this stove. The winter of 08-09, propane prices where at $2.59 per gallon. I would have used about $7,459 to heat my home just in one winter using propane… just about $1,000 more, and you have the cost I paid for my stove, including installation.
The wood comes from my land, so even that is basically free. Simply put, if I didn’t have a wood stove, I would have to move from my hobby farm. Thank you WoodMaster for allowing me (in a roundabout way) to stay in my home (my warm home, actually). My savings since purchasing my stove in 2006 is more than $20,000 in heating costs!
