Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): | House Size (Sq feet): 2000
Bought in 2009 , Price Paid: 2700
Location : Shelton, CT 6484, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Dean\'s Stove & Spa

Likes: The unit puts out an incredible amount of heat with the blower option. The large box capacity and door alow for easy filling.

Dislikes: It seems to burn alot of wood. Even well seasoned Oak was burned up quickly with the unit dampered down. Factory says 12hrs burn time, dealer said about 10 if loaded well. So far the longest I have gotten was approx. 6-7 hrs (still a long time).

Comments: Very satisfied with the dealer and installers. Both were very professional and knew everything about the stove.
