Location : Accident, Md 21520,

Likes: It heats my 2500 Sq ft home. It is a weekend and holiday use home so when we get here on Friday it takes a while to get it up and running.The house has one wall of all glass up to 14 ft.high and this unit keeps it in the 70s after only 8 hrs of burning.

Dislikes: 5-6 hr burns are the longest I can get. Snapstat takes forever to come on, so I use manual.

Comments: Best thing my wife talked me into, old fireplace with a 11\" flue turned the house into an icebox every time we lit a fire.
Even our in-floor heat couldn\'t keep up.
