From reading this forum a number of people had problems with the Mt Vernon AE when it was first introduced. Fixes were done and the number of problems seems to have dropped drastically. The Mt Vernon has the best set of features for what I want. I heard them run at two different dealers and the quietness is important since it will be in a room with a TV. We have a 3300 sq ft two-story colonial with a fireplace in the family room and foyer open to the second floor. I'm hoping the 60,000 BTU capability will do a lot to keep the electric heat we have now from running almost constantly as it did last year at times. For those who have had theirs a year or more how is it working now? Have you had time to really test it since last year? If you purchased one this year have you run it much and is it working well? I'm hoping if I get one now it will work as advertised and meet the expectations I have of it after talking with the dealer.
