Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 500 | House Size (Sq feet): 1400
Bought in 2008 , Price Paid: 500
Location : La Crosse, WI 54601, USA
Purchased from: Home Center/Hardware - Home Depot

Likes: This is a low cost stove that I was able to install with close proximity to walls once I purchased additional heat shields. Easily heated the house.

Dislikes: Very little ability to control burn rate. Rarely operates with secondary combustion where some stoves I have seen appear to burn that way all the time. Burn times are usually in the four to five hour range. I could never load very much as it would just overheat the house and burn out.

Comments: I\'m going to upgrade to a more premium brand this year.
