Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store -

Likes: Reasonable amount of heat produced. Installed with both connection to forced air ducting and also with the internal blower.

Dislikes: Airwash system does not work at all. Spent first year listening to jarring rattle of the blower while discussing with dealer. Eventually contacted Steve at RSF directly, and was able to exchange blower. New one is much quieter!

Comments: Have not been able to keep glass doors clean AT ALL!! Soot covers doors within hours, despite dry seasoned wood, even with the damper fully opened. Very disappointing. Would not recommend this unit at all.
