The stove has been consistently efficient, warms entire house.. 80 in area with stove, 68-70 in rest of house (Tri-Level).
Lack of technical support. Dealer is out of business, and manufacturer has thus far been nonresponsive. Need simple help with wiring diagram for blowers, but am a little lost, lol. Fans can also be a little noisey when on high.
Stove was improperly installed by dealer and not direct vented. I just reworked and direct vented the stove, increasing my satisfaction 100%. All I need now is a wiring diagram...which btw, was not included in the owners manual.
