Heating - Wood Fire
RSF Delta 2
Something like $4K but depends on the local dealer, eg Sutter Home, 14475 Woodinville-Redmond Road, Woodinville, WA 98072
Big bay window
Holds 24” logs
Tested by a certified EPA facility to burn as clean as an EPA Phase II wood heater at 3.8 grams per hour. May not be good enough to meet WA state rules - need to check!!!!!!!!
The maximum chimney height is 40 feet which means it will not work for the mudroom !!!!!!!!!!! It is ok for the living room fire. Note that a joggle is required to get the chimney more than 10 feet from the edge of the cupola.
Possibilities for mudroom
The issue with the mudroom is that it needs a 50 foot chimney. Most fires/stoves are speced at 40' max.
US Stove 3000 Extra Large Wood Stove
They said: "40 feet is the max chimney height spec, but if you have a draft that goes up .04 to .06, you can have it checked by any certified chimney sweep, who can say if it will work.".
It says it is WA state approved.
21" log length
It is good value but not really as big as I would like. The small diameter (6") chimney gives it more chance of working with the long chimney length as the gasses will move faster and cool less. It is going to be a bit iffy as to how well it works with a 50 foot chimney but at least it is not too much money to waste if it does not work.

Regency Pro-Series F5100 Extra Large Wood Stove
They say "For optimum performance, we recommend a chimney no higher than 40ft. ".
Seems to have a catalytic converter. About 85% efficient. Because of the high efficiency I guess it will probably not work with a 50' chimney.

Renaissance Rumford 1500
Like the Delta2 it is made by RSF.
Supports a 60 foot chimney
Not strictly a high efficiency unit, but it does well...
Needs a 12" chimney
"We have 2 fireplaces that can be installed up to 60 feet. They are the Rumford 1000B and the 1500B. Although they are not high efficiency fireplaces they have a magnificent firebox. "
Costs something like $8K.
They say they cannot handle the 50' chimney height because "Not enough heat loss to handle your application. Too efficient! ".
Made in WA state.
