Other Information about the Home and Stove

Location : Santa Rosa, CA 95401, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Buck Stove
Nice heat - no kinkling or logs to mess with - easy to start fire and control it's heat output - clear concience with reguards to the environment - this is placed between out T.V and couch and is VERY quite - has a large hopper which holds about 1.5 bags of pellets - It looks nice - it is easy to clean - you don't really need a chimney to install; can install anywhere there's and outside wall.
I'm presently in need of a new burn pot, and the locale dealer didn't have one. I called the manufacturer in the U.S to order one and they said their order was on back order from Austria. So the Austra-Flamm U.S get's it's stock from Austria. So you may have to wait for your part.
This stove plugs in for the fans; so make sure you're electricity is fairly reliable - i wouldn't get this if i lived in the country or where the electricity always goes out. Other than this, i'm very pleased with this unit so far - and it's been almost 6 years not since we've bought it.
