Has any one had this delema? Did you install a boiler or a stove. Those of you that have stoves. Do they smell? admit any sort of fumes? Dust from loading ? I would hate to spend 3K then have the same problem with breathing.
If you were having a smoke/smell issue in the house with the wood stove, there had to be a problem with the set up. Properly installed, the stove should be free of smoke or oder in the dwelling.
If I had the $$$ and was going to start from scratch, I'd go with the boiler.
