    Don't think I've ever seen an ember fall out of an airtight stove. Not talking about a fireplace here, which is useless for heat cause 80% of the heat goes up the chimney. Now an airtight stove is just that, airtight. If it's airtight, it's embertight. I heated a two story house in Maine for two winters and never bought a drop of oil.
    If you've never used/seen one, try to find someone who has one. You will not believe how well they work. When you retire for the evening, toss a few logs in the stove, SHUT THE DOOR, tone the air control back to next to nothing, and in the morning it's still going strong. They cannot be beat.

    Hearthmate makes a tremendous stove. Lenny Olson in Damariscotta, Maine makes a tremendous stove.

    Wood with forced air/propane as a backup. for some reason i kind of like cutting wood in the winter and your not forced to pay outrageous gas prices. Now i have the wood burner hooked up to the furnace duct work and it has a blower to blow the heat through the standard ducts. The furnace only turns on when i go out of town.

    Oil hot water baseboard!!! With separate 40gal stainless tank. Absolutely love it!!! Great heat, no cool pockets... Key is to get several tanks so you only fill once a year, in the summer when prices are down... also double as fuel for the truck!!!
