Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 500 | House Size (Sq feet): 1800
Bought in 2011 , Price Paid: $500
Location : Monticello, IN 47960, USA
Purchased from: Other Store Type (Furniture/etc) - used

Likes: Well made, easy to use, glass stays clean, good capacity.

Dislikes: Inadequate blower volume, doesn't produce enough heat to keep a well insulated 1800 sq ft. ranch home warm during an average Indiana Winter. Burn times were much less than mfr. estimates even when using well seasoned hard woods.

Comments: Compared to my old Nashua Stove(non EPA) and similar size, the Napoleon provides less heat however, it burns cleaner.
