We have occasional power outages over winter because of the area we live in having so many woodlands we're prone to being affected by falling branches and trees taking the powerlines out. In our new home we want to put a contemporary wood burning fireplace insert into a reasonably-sized chimney that can really pump out the heat, yet do so very cleanly. What should we look out for and are there any Canadian wood burning fireplace manufacturers you can suggest that make a solid yet high heat output and clean burning product? Thanks!
