My parents have an iron stove in the basement. I love the look of an iron stove. This stove has water pipes running through it. The water heats up from the fire, and is stored in a water heater in the basement. This water can help heat the whole house. This stove provides 19kw of heat. On the coldest days our house uses 24kw of heat. So a stove like this could take a big bite out of our gas bill! But where could we put it? I don't know! But I really like it!
