When we bought a house it came with a decorative wood stove.
Technically it could have been used to heat the living room, but it never was.
The previous homeowners never used it. It was totally clean inside and out. The woodstove was so small that if used, it would barely provide enough living room heating. He buys a fully functional heater just for the look of it? They also vented it through the wood ceiling and added a stack to the roof. It was able to be used but was worthless. It was a pain in the butt removing that heater as well. It sat on a brick pad that needed to be destroyed with a sledgehammer. Then we had to redo the living room carpet due to the hole in the floor. Next the vent had to be removed and the wood ceiling needed to be patched. The stack was removed and roofers had to repair the damage. Lastly we had to move a cast iron heater and try to get someone to take it. Our Evansville IN HVAC dealership didn’t want it due to the size. They said no homeowner would ever use it for their heating system. I eventually sold it to a guy that wanted a heater for his hunting shack in Indiana. It was in great shape so I got a deal on it. I just wanted that ugly wood stove though. I am so glad we have that extra space in the living room and there are no holes in my ceiling and roof anymore.
