Value of used freestanding gas stove

PostBy: Chiefcamper On: Fri Mar 11, 2011 1:59 pm

Hi All.

I just joined today and I'm glad to be here. In the process of putting a shaker coal stove in, I'm looking for the right one.

I have a Heat N Glo freestanding direct vent natural gas/propane stove with fake logs. It's a Townsend 2. The last time I ran it was about 3 years ago. It has no blower although one is available, and it has a remote control thermostat. Green enamal finish, glass front, in nice shape. Not sure but the output is about 30,000 btu's. It easily heats one floor appx 1,000 square ft.

I'm planning on getting rid of it, Any opinions on what I should ask for it?

Thanks,

Joe

I'm looking for a N. Gas stove, I just found out that I can get hooked up for free (run to the house anyway).

Let me know what you decide, but I'd say $250 or so? I'm guess based on what I've seen in the local wantad.

Being it has not been touched in a couple years, I'm sure it could use some cleaning up and removal of any spider webs in the or-faces.

Where are you?

Rule of thumb: Used gas stuff under $1,000 in good shape is one half the price of new. Over $1,000 would bring a bit more than half. Such as. a $1,500 unit might bring $999.

Thanks for all the help guys. (Nice looking setup Mozz :) )

I spent some time at the dealer today. It went for about 2300 brand new and was last produced about 12 years ago. It came with the house I bought, worked fine but it was installed with the pipe thru a wall, then up an outside wall, terminating just above the eave. It looked bad.Whoever installed it must have been lost. All it needed was a termination vent on the exterior wall. The big problem was it was in a small back room and not living a full life there, so when I had the house re-sided I just disconnected it and sided over the hole :) I put some insulation in the hole with a picture over it on the interior. It looks great!!!

I bought a similar stove by Vermont Castings for my previous home and it heated the basement well. Used propane to heat the house. I was in for over 3 thousand with the installation.

Went on the Duravent website and found they make everything you need to adapt to a masonary chimney for around 300 bucks. I'm tempted to install it in my basement now. <---JOKE
