Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store -

Likes: Easy to use, \"pretty\".

Dislikes: Waking up to a 38 degree house. It blows cold air, even w/ good hard dry wood and a thick bed of coals.

Comments: It may just be me, but after having had a VT Castings for 12 years w/ no problems at all (and a nice warm house) I am terribly disappointed in this new insert. I have electric baseboard as a back up, and until this year haven\'t had to use it. My electric bills have tripled because this insert will NOT keep the house warm, not even the room it is in. Very unhappy customer here.
