Eccotemp I12-lp looked in my accounts to make sure this was the correct item it is but I was mistaken on the price I paid 218.00 not 318.00 and the price now is 249.00 that includes wall thimble and exhaust pipe read the feedback and you will see multiple reviews of folks who use them in 6000ft altitudes.

Factor that into your thoughts but I am absolutely going to use one in the Bluebird build.
How hot is your floor when heating the space at eye level to 70? Seems like it would have to be uncomfortably hot on the floor to heat the room to comfortable.

You would think so but the house is divided into three zones.The thermalmass
is so large that the floor never gets above 78 degrees to keep the house at 71 degrees 78 feels really good on your toes and 71 feels good every where else there are floor heat sensors in every zone to monitor temp and shut down the heater if floor temp exceeds 80 but they have never been used in service I just look at them to see the temp the zone temp is regulated by standard programmable thermostats and zone control solenoids.
