Likes: Very Nice Unit which burns beautiful fire. Heavy guage steel plate. Well built. All options available for pre-fab fireplace installation. With blower this unit really cranks out the heat!

Dislikes: Needs slightly larger firebox. Burn time is more like 6 hours. Glass is nice but doesn't stay clean for long. Manufacturer should have painted entire stove including back and underneath to prevent rust. They are also very slow when ordering parts. Mine took months...

Comments: I installed this unit into a Heatilator A42C prefab fireplace. Relined 25ft.chimney with stainless liner and insulation. Available panel and Z/C kit makes for a professional look. It took about three days to do everything and total cost was $2500.00. Email me at doug_lambert@dom.com if anyone has any questions. I had a ton before I started.
