Likes: Nice looking unit, Blower unit works well once it gets going.

Dislikes: Blower unit thermostat does not work well. Takes 1/2 hour to 45 minutes to turn on.

Comments: Retailer was the only one in the area to carry stove, they seemed very indifferent to the sale. There happended to be an avalon rep in the building at the time or I probably would have left. Installer installed bricks on the upper part of unit incorrectly. Very satisfied with the unit itself.
