Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): | House Size (Sq feet): 2000
Bought in 2009 , Price Paid: 3500
Location : Columbus, Ohio ,
Purchased from: Select Store Type -

Likes: Large woodbox, beautiful large window for viewing the fire, damper and flue air controls (this is a feature not found in the other units we evaluated). We can heat the upper levels of our house easily with this unit. Fires can burn all night and we have a bed of hot coals ready for more logs in the morning.

Dislikes: No ash pan - we have to shovel out the ash (and sift the coals out). This is a minor inconvenience. I love this wood burning insert! Others complain about the fan noise, but the blowers do such a great job of circulating the warm air I can\'t find myself griping about the volume.

Comments: This forum was incredibly helpful to us in making our decision. We are very pleased with our purchase (but not our local supplier). Hearth.com\'s stove ratings made all the difference in our research.
