Giving specific stove advice without seeing the actual location and money available is a troublesome position to me. EFM won't work for me and my solutions worked GREAT last winter. Look before you leap.
Wondering how cost effective it is buying and using 3 or 4 hot air stoker stoves units with power vents vs one hydronic unit with chimney masonry or S.S. baseboard or rads or even radiant floor heating hot water is a hell of alot more efficient then heating air sounds to me you should of took your own advice look before you leap
Even using a hot air stoker furnace would be more cost effective then using 3 or 4 stoker stoves heating a whole house
stoker stoves are design for supplementary heating boilers and furnaces are design for primary heating
