Likes: Great unit...bought this to heat my NH home (1800 sqft) it does that and heats an 1100 sqft basement in addition. The unit looks terrific and is highly functional. I talked to the manufacturer before purchase and he assured me this unit would do the job....It Does!

Dislikes: In order to do a correct installation you have to read,read,read! Alot of instructions, they are clear, but numerous. If you are quite handy you can do this install yourself. Bring friends...it's a heavy sucker!

Comments: One of the nicest looking units I've seen..many compliments. I've read complaints that it burns too much wood...not true. If you choke it down after a full load it will burn for 6-7 hours...not bad. I have the 36" model.
