Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 1500 sq ft | House Size (Sq feet): 3300 sq ft
Bought in 1997 , Price Paid: $2200
Location : Vancouver, bc ,
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store -

Likes: A very attractive period style fireplace insert. Very simple to operate. The imitation coal glows beautifully after a short time of fire being on. However looks can be deceiving.

Dislikes: Not a popular unit in terms of numbers old. This tranlates into lack of knowledge of the service technicians when servicing the unit.

Comments: Lack of service technician knowledge results in costly service/repair bills and no solution to 'ignition and stay lit' problem associated to this unit. It is cheaper to discard unit and purchase a new one rather than repair existing unit. Not a recommended buy.
