On the eve of 2018, what are the views of mixing a ‘pretty good house’ with a wood stove?
Hi! Happy New Year. We will be building a new home in Maine in 2018 and are incorporating a high level of energy efficiency; but not bringing it to passive house level. Specifically, open cell foam insulation; triple pane windows; seal, seal; seal and high velocity heat pump; 2 by 6 walls.
We are considering either a wood stove or wood stove insert for the supplemental heat and enjoyment; however, not certain this is a good move; any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks much in advance.
