Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 300 | House Size (Sq feet): 1632
Bought in 2011 , Price Paid: $1850.00
Location : Carver, Mass. , USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Hearth Heating Inc.

Likes: Easy to start fires. Beautiful appearance of stove. Secondaries light off easily. Pivot top for cooking, boiling water etc. Blower moves air very well and is quiet as blowers go. Requires only ember protection for hearth. Being a convection stove outputs lots of heat without cooking you out of stove room. Seems like overnight burns are possible. Lifetime warranty on many parts and 5 years parts and labor comprehensive for most parts.

Dislikes: None yet.

Comments: The Alderlea is an attractive stove and a serious heater. I am still new to this stove so I will have better info after a full season of burning. I will repost in the event I have problems but so far it looks OK.
