I have found a wood stove with a blower in back for sale in my area that is used. I am wondering about how to tell if it is insulated or not. I can not tell if it is in a basement or not or the size of the house. My place is over 2000 sq feet and is a manufactered house. I am wanting a wood stove that is insulated and build a shed for it and run it into my hvac. A neighbor did this and heats his place and i want to also. Thanks

Do you have pictures of the stove? I don't know how to tell if it is insulated or not, but I know pictures will help anyone knowledgeable on the subject do this for you.
I also found an article online by Warm Nation about identifying wood stoves.
