Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 208 | House Size (Sq feet): 2400
Bought in 2006 , Price Paid: $2,169.16
Location : Berwick, PA 18603, Luzerne
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Stolz Stove Sales/ Sones Coal Ya

Likes: Built very well, not a cast iron beauty, but a good looking stove for me. Variable speed clower fan included in purchase price. Pumps out tons of heat. Very decent burn times depending on the wood used. Fairly easy install.

Dislikes: Gets real hot when packed full. 800-850*+ Not really a problem, just use less wood per load. More a learning curve for each consumer. Heavy for the DIY'er! 450+lbs.

Comments: Excellent insert. Keeps house at 72-74 degrees steadily, easy ligh, easy refil & relight, just an all around beast, and performs better than imagined. This insert will not disappoint, if it does, your expectations are not realistic!
