i just bought a new lennox montlake 230 insert. i am not very happy with, i have a 25' ss liner connected to it and it just goes through wood very quickly the blower does not seem to do a good job my house is 2100 sq ft. it says it will heat a 2500sq. ft. home easily. i have tried every possible scenario with the damper open, closed, halfway, just barely open, and a loaded firebox lasts 2 hrs. on a good day. i am getting lots of coals that do not turn to ash and the firebox get half filled with these and i have to shovel hot coals out to put more wood in . the wood is hard aged hickory , oak and maple. iam very disappointed with this insert and i do not recommend this insert
