How much of a dent could I expect to put into a $2000 heat bill for a 4,000 sq/ft house with an 8' rmh? In other word's how close could I come to heating this space with just an 8' rmh if i kept it fueled? would a larger size be optimal? I'm leaning towards buying the 8' plans I am just hesitant because I'm not sure if it is adequate and if I should to be looking for different plans.

note: I could just scale it up but I hate messing with sizes since optimization is very touchy with things of this nature.
