I've heard great things about the Mini-slits but I think you would be wise to have a second heat source. At least a wood or pellet stove.
I agree a wood stove would be nice for any system as a backup. You might check the performance specs of the most recent recent models vs those of just a few years ago; there have been dramatic improvements. Ours is only two years old; the first winter had numerous record lows.

How old is yours?
