    Napoleon 1400c wood stove review

    Napoleon 1400c in black finish review

    By Tahoe Ron from South Lake Tahoe, California

    This fireplace replaced a 40 year old wood stove that was used to heat a 1200 sf "A" frame cabin with open beamed ceilings in South Lake Tahoe, California. This wood stove is the sole source of heat for the place. This review is specific to this type of open floor plan during 20 to 50 degree winter conditions. 1. Buy the optional blower. It 's needed to push the heat out from the stove and to keep stove temp's steady. 2. Unless you are heating a standard sized room with standard ceilings, you will need an additional fan to move the heat around. Our stove is positioned in front of the cabin and we placed a fan behind and just above the stove itself. Set on low, the fan pushes the heat throughout. This is a must! Without it, we were only able to heat the general area around the fireplace. 3. Buy a thermometer. We installed ours on the stove top heating area. 4. All stoves need to be broken in. Took us about 40 hrs before full heat output was obtained. I would recommend this wood stove.

    Very nice looking. Solid construction. Hybrid type with cast iron jacket. Fires up fast and heats up nicely.

    1. Blower is optional. It should be standard 2. An additional fan is needed for an open floor plan to really push heat thoughout. 3. Does not come with a thermometer. 4. Trap door to ash bin is too small. Not very effective.
