Likes: Very sylish and nice looking in our home with big view of fire burning.Puts out ample amount of heat for the whole home (with blower unit).

Dislikes: Glass always turns black when I burn on a low fire , and I hate it.Blower unit is a bit noisey and the blower switch must have a short in it every since install.Blower unit grating vibrates at times while running.Blower unit always shuts on and off while on low fire because of it being thermostatic operated. I can't ever get a good all night or 12 hour burn out of it. Also get alot of ashes quick , have to clean out about every day and a half....

Comments: Other than the blower unit, the door glass always turning black, and can't get a long burn time out of it , I like the unit .
If anyone might happen to have any suggestions for me please feel free to email me sfrantom@woh.rr.com
