Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 360 | House Size (Sq feet): 2128
Bought in 1999 , Price Paid: 1300
Location : Westford, MA 1886,
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Woodstove, Patio, and Fi

Likes: Very clean burning. Heats entire house (over 2000sq/ft) easily. Very tight clearances with this model so it minimizes floorspace. Glass front is great and the air controls work smoothly.

Dislikes: The heat resistant paint on the top doesn't seem very durable. It comes off pretty easily.

Comments: Great stove. I replaced an old "smoker" with this 3100 and it burns longer, hotter, and uses less wood. This stove is an all around "score" !!
