Do not buy anything from US Stove ever. I've owned this furnace for just over four years, and I never knew before today that these were not made in the USA. The grates melt too easily, I had two melt. The grate mounting plate broke as well. These parts are ridiculously overpriced to replace! And they break and melt far too easy! The fire bricks are sub-par also, I had to replace those. Worst of all, I found a crack around my door frame yesterday. That is a death sentence for a furnace, it's no good at this point. The unit looks brand new still, it doesn't even get used that much, and it's cracked. There is corrosion around the door frame weld and the crack started there. It is nothing I have done wrong, it's a terrible design made in China and sold to us as if it were made here. Shame on Tractor Supply Company for selling this junk for years and years to the American public. I don't understand why more hasn't been done to stop these junk units from being sold. Waste of money and dangerous as well.

"Awesome wood burning furnace"

Bought this stove last October and paid $1700 for installation. It pumps out heat. I have a 2000 square foot custom ranch that was remodeled last year. We had to open windows several times and only operate the stove on its lowest setting. It doesn't need the furnace to force air through our ducts, which was a great discovery. I am planning on installing another smaller version in my dad's house next year.

"Burns hot"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Very good stove. I heat with wood and lump coal. My square footage is 3600 — the stove is designed for 2200. Average temps indoor are 73-75. Furnace room 95. I burn around 8 cords a year and 3000lbs of coal. That may sound like alot but hard to compete with a $15 gas bill and $30 in coal a month. I installed a bigger blower and use different limit switches to control the blower based on temps and winter storms. For everyone complaining about the limit switches… they cost $6 whole dollars and are available at hvac dealers. I agree with others on here, burning wood is consuming. But saving hundreds a month is worth an hour or two a day. I'll stick to my shorts and tank top in the winter. The complainers can go back to oil, gas, electric. LoL

"Worst wood-burning ANYTHING"

Very Unsatisfied

We just bought a us Stove 1500 Warm Air Hotblast Furnace for our family's cabin through a local handy-man service. After looking at the prices on Amazon, I realized that we were ripped off! Almost a thousand dollars more than they charge. It wouldn't be so bad if it actually worked well, but it seems to leak air almost constantly. I'm not sure if it was a bad install job or a bad furnace, but I would never buy their product again.
