Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 2500 | House Size (Sq feet): 3000
Bought in 2011 , Price Paid: 3800
Location : Alpine, CA 91901, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Ferrell's Fireside (El Cajon)

Likes: Ease of use, capacity, heat retention, build quality, extreme burn times, side door, and air control.

Dislikes: absolutely none. This has exceeded my highest expectation. Ash grate lever is a bit tricky.

Comments: There are virtually no reviews of the Equinox, probably because the stove is so large and expensive. Like the website says, it is a workhorse. It is the biggest, baddest out there. It heats a high desert home with 25 foot ceilings and all window. However, it is also highly adjustable and puts out a comfortable, soothing heat. I just put the fan on with the central heating system to circulate the air from the warm rooms to the rest of the house. I can't stress how impressed I am with this piece of equipment, and it doesn't have the ash pan issues that others complain about with the Mansfield (which I don't have).
