Likes: High Efficiency 75-80% with wood but you need dry good wood.Unit is a central in house wood boiler 100,000 btu/hr uses wood gasification for combustion really does not smoke when it's up to temp. High Quality, built to last, good design

Dislikes: Exspensive. Sales pushes extra options. sales lititure says virtually no smoke or creosote. Having a creosote problem in chimney. Not real sure if it's the stove or chimney but, I suspect the chimney have a 20 foot 8 inch round type HT metal double lined insulated chimney. with o.k draft

Comments: would probally recommend but with a real brick chimney
