    Host your pic on photobucket or a similar site, then copy the IMG link and paste it into your post.

    The old Forum needed to be resized, the new Forum, not so much. Or read the Sticky links up top.

    I'm not trying to derail this post too much, but how often does a Mt Vernon AE need to be slid out of the fireplace for servicing?

    Depends on the service. For the most part, you can reach in there through the 2 side doors for maintenance. I have removed my combustion blower for cleaning without moving the stove.

    Very nice. And a perfect fit too. Once you've played around with it for a bit, come back to check out the forum on tinkering with the stove (assuming the dealer has not done this).

    That looks awesome! Matches right in w/ the trim on the mantel perfectly. ;)

    But, we'll see how long the log set lasts before you remove it. Most people find it just gets in the way and makes cleaning harder to do. Looks nice in the stove during the summer months, though.

    Thank you everyone. This stove puts out the heat ! 73 degrees in the living area and 67 degrees upstairs and still creeping up.

    Imac - That is hilarious ! That is EXACTLY what the installer told me about the log set.

    Loving it so far J. Still playing around with different settings - had the downstairs up to 76 degrees last night :) The thing I like most is that our heat pump hasn't kicked on since the stove started running yesterday. We were using around 8 kilowatts of electricity per hour before, and the last 14 hours we have used 1.2 kilowatts per hour.

    Very nice.....I like the color choice and how it "pops" against the color of your tile and the white mantle.
