I have had the Santa Fe for 10 years and it heats our 1700 sq ft house. However it needs to be cleaned after every bad, the heat exchanger every week and the smoke vent pipes every 3 weeks. All you do is clean, clean and more cleaning with this stove. When it was installed the tech told me you don't want it to close to the wall because it has to be service. No kidding good thing I can do it myself it's had 4 exhaust fans, 5 thermocouples and one vacuum switch. It's the most temperamental appliance I have owned. I am converting my main furnace from Oil to the much cheaper natural gas and see you later Santa Pain.
