Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): | House Size (Sq feet): 1400
Bought in 1992 , Price Paid: $1100
Location : Pittsburgh, PA 15201, USA
Purchased from: Select Store Type - Free Energy

Likes: Lots of heat. Nice sized box. Heats the entire house, long burns. Nice look (older models). Love the larger glass window!

Dislikes: Blower is a little noisy, although quieter than most. Needs more air-flow across the glass. I don't care much for the look of the newer 4n1-XL's. The top of the older models curved down over the front, concealing the top-front air vents.

Comments: Good stove, priced right.
