Arrow wood fire insert?

We purchased our house nine months ago and there is an Arrow wood fire insert. That is the only name on it. We have no instruction manual and no idea how to use it, and my wife wants it gone.

She is concerned that it is not safe for our kids. We have an 18 month old and a newborn. I suspect that the outside of it gets extremely hot. It has a plug for a blower. The previous owner said he used it all the time. The question is, does anyone know of an online manual for this brand? Also, how hard is it to remove?

Finally, should we keep it and utilize it? Is it safe for kids. Our house is about 3100 sq ft. We live in the Atlanta area, and our highest gas bill was last month about 140 dollars. Would this heat the whole house? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Cool

Contact Heatilator for technical support on the Arrow Stove.


You need a Level II inspection before using that stove. It probably does not have a liner so for that alone, it should not be installed.

No stove is safe, esp. for children. Safety is a dangerous word. Your furnace needs ducts to distribute the heat all over the house, right? So, while using the furnace's blower will redistribute some heat, it is still a zone heater at best.

Get a pro in there.
