We love the lighting of the bay windows which self-clean and stay clean, if operating the damper correctly. The blower helps get the heat out. The firebox is bigger for bigger pieces of wood. Nice heavy duty unit.
The blower is noisy. We haven't figured out how to sustain an all-night burn yet. Perhaps it's the type of wood that we use. The main door handle burns your hand. Use an oven mitt when handling. It was a real chore! to install in our existing fireplace and also to put in the chimney liner. Very heavy unit.
It warms the house and keeps the heat constant. A blower is a must! We've so far considered this unit a good quality and high caliber. We hope to have it for many years.
