Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 500 | House Size (Sq feet): 2200
Bought in 2011 , Price Paid: 3300
Location : North Vernon, IN 47265, Jennings
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Economy Fireplace

Likes: Insert has long burn times- had enough coals for a hot restart after loading the firebox 1/2 full with oak 11 hours earlier. Unit is extremely easy to use after coming from a previous catalytic insert. The air wash works really well, had to clean glass on previous insert every day. The door seals well and air control is very effective.

Dislikes: Left side blower motor is a little more noisy than the right, have not contacted the dealer about it yet. Heat output is not as even as the catalytic unit.

Comments: I wish I had bought this unit earlier, much better insert than the catalytic. Would recommend to anybody looking for an insert.
