Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 750 | House Size (Sq feet): 2650
Bought in 2011 , Price Paid:
Location : Medford, OR 97504, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Orley's

Likes: Fireplace is attractive.

Dislikes: 1) ***Fireplace Extrordinair can't be operated during a power outage!***
2) Despite air blowing over front glass, the glass gets dirty with each use

Comments: Had I known this unit couldn't have been used during a power outage, I wouldn't have bought it. The unit has to have the fan operating (which blows the air out into the room at about 3' above the bottom of the fireplace). We lose power frequently, and had intended on using this to heat the room. This defect should be disclosed more prominently.
