Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 12X20 | House Size (Sq feet): 2400
Bought in 2002 , Price Paid: $225
Location : Chester, VA 23831, USA
Purchased from: Select Store Type - purchased from original owner.

Likes: good steady heat. nice long burn. handsome stove with lots of thick brass. nice big window.

Dislikes: You have to shine brass. Air wash doesn't really keep it clean on window. Fan is a little loud. Can't see the combustors to tell if they are firing properly.

Comments: bought used last year. Didn't change combustors (they are in the mail now) I don't think they were firing off too good last year and it still did a great job heating the house. IT's also on the end of the house. Cut our heating bills from 400-600 to about 100-150 month.
