It doesn't take much coaxing to get a fire which settles into a well rounded, clean burn. You have to be very careless to get smoke into the house. Our house is around 85 years old and not insulated very well, yet the stove keeps the living room very comfortable, and the other rooms between 65 & 70 degrees. We haven't used much propane this year. I like the way it burns. . .because of the air manifold system the fire just churns away from and at the wood, very hypnotic.
Maybe the door could be a little taller. But all in all, we are just enjoying this stove a great deal.
The dealer was very easy to work with. He does the chimney service for us and had access to two different brands of stoves. The Napoleon had a much better price to performance ratio.
