HI all...after reading numerous comments and postings, I decided to replace my pellet stove with a new Lopi Northfield "GreenSmart" gas stove. Wow... I am impressed with this little stove...perfect for my front room warmth and ceiling fan spreads the heat. I did get the convection fan (see electric cord in outlet) and opted for the GreenSmart Remote Control instead of wall thermostat. This is a very cool item and since I can go witht the intermittant pilot light option, I suspect I shall save in propane fuel over the year. I also like that the pilot light has battery backup. All in all...very nice looking stove. I love it. It does have three side glass panels...only problem I have at the moment is keeping the side ones sparkling clean cuz I would have to move around the logs, rocks and items to get to them. I heasitate to do this as I do not know this stove that well yet to start tinkering around with it. Hmmm...maybe it is running a bit to rich? I dunno...I like perfectly clean, sparkling glass and I was told I only needed to clean them once a year. Anybody else get one of these LOPI GreenSmart types?
