Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 350 | House Size (Sq feet): 2300
Bought in 0000 , Price Paid: 3900
Location : Alexandria, VA 22301, United States
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - ACME Stove, Springfield, VA

Likes: Great looking unit, very efficient, QUIET blower! Puts out a lot of heat!

Dislikes: Cannot shut blower off completely without opening doors. With doors closed, you can only turn blower down to low. I wish there was an "off" blower switch.

Comments: Very pleased with unit, installer was HORRIBLE to deal with as was contractor in general. Store where unit was bought was less than helpful as well. Do your homework before buying! I learned a lot from this experience, and I'd be happy to share my suggestions with anyone looking to buy.
