Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 360 | House Size (Sq feet): 1200
Bought in 0000 , Price Paid:
Location : Flenington, nj , Hunterdon
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Seasons Hearth & Patio, Ivyland,

Likes: Craftsmanship, heating capacity, the dealer had unit in stock. I would highly recommend this stove and dealer to anyone.

Dislikes: The glass gets dirty fast.

Comments: I found conflicting and confusing information between the sales brochure and the information packaged with the stove: The advertised BTU (50k), emissions (3.77 gph), and efficiency (72%) on the sales material is overstated according to the owners manual which reads 11k-27k BTU, 5 gpr emissions, and 62% efficiency. Also a metal plate was delivered loose in the stove and did not appear in the owners manual diagrams. I had to go back to the dealer to look at a floor model to determine where the plate should go.
