Great heat, blower pushes air well.
Doors get VERY DIRTY on low burn. Thermostat seems to kick fan on only after stove is very hot, wastes warm air when stove is starting up. Fan knob paint comes off VERY easily. Door seal came off after first fire.
The positive air pressure option is not recommended for very cold areas! They recommend just circulating the air in cold climates. They never told me that when I purchased, only when I went to install it did I realize that.
