This Lopi Republic 1250 stove will heat our 1150 sf house but does take a while. The fire box is small so the wood needs to be small pieces. If the fire is started properly, per instructions, we don't get smoke into the room. However, when re-loading, I have to open a window or door to increase the air pressure in the house relative to the firebox air pressure. Most of the time this measure will ...

I am so happy with this Lopi Republic 1250. It is very easy to use, user friendly, economical and most importantly it works. It can heat up the room immediately with just using few woods. I can use it without winching because with just minimal work on the stove, it would work immediately. It can save a lot of time and effort.

I have only had this stove a few months. First thing i want to say is this little stove will absolutely do an 8 hour burn. And that is without going out of the way to stack the box full. I have gotten burn times of 12 hours with this stove with the firebox only being 50% full and the damper turned down low. A bed of coals and a single 6" doug fir limb as a stoker. If I start with a cold stove ...

Bought a Lopi 1250 2008 model last Spring used for around $200.00 and am a happy camper.I have had a liberty about 15 years ago which was a lot bigger for a bigger house so was partial to the Lopi brand. This stove although much less exotic fits the bill for this 800 sq. ft house and does nicely. The double wall piping, thimble and custom hearth materials were where the expenses were ...

I purchased this stove in 2011 for use in my small 240 sq ft cabin. the cabin has nine foot walls with a 100 square foot loft. the peak of the roof is nearly 14 feet high so there is plenty of cubic feet to heat. This stove does the job just fine in my northern Minnesota location. the stove is positioned in the corner with minimum recommended clearance and has the outside air option ...

I fired up my Lopi Republic 1250 for the first time last week. All the smoke went up the chimney; none came into the living room of our cabin. No need for a bypass system. It takes a while for the stove to warm up but once it does, it really pumps out the heat. It works well to get the wood load burn vigorously for a while and then fully dampen the air intake. After dampening, the stove temp ...

We recently bought a Lopi Republic 1250 free standing wood stove. Once it gets going, it is a nice little stove. However, we have not found a dependable way to light it without filling up the room with smoke. I believe this is because, unlike more expensive models, it lacks a damper that bypasses the heat recovery system during lighting. The smoke has to travel toward the front of the stove, ...
