Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 150 | House Size (Sq feet): 1600
Bought in 2001 , Price Paid: $400
Location : Bear Valley, CA ,
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Hibernation Heating, Arnold, CA

Likes: Small, inexpensive, heats well.

Dislikes: Noisy! There's so much noise from thermal expansion that it often wakes me up at night when it comes on. We have a Jotul in another bedroom that is much quieter. The box on the Jotul seems to be sturdier. If I was choosing again I would get another Jotul.

Comments: Dovre customer support has been responsive but the local dealer doesn't seem to know their business.
