Location : Des Moines, IA 50301, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - 4 Queens

Likes: With glass door closed and blower on, it heats up room very well, even on coldest winter days. Nice big area inside to burn large logs.

Dislikes: Glass doors turn brown then black on upper 1/2 after a few fires. Does this happen to most fire places? Blower temperature sensor/switch does not work. I now use a remote controlled switch to turn on/off blower; works great.

Comments: I had a gas log lighter added. This is well worth the extra installation cost. It makes it easy enough to have fires every evening. I love the aroma of a wood burning fire.
