Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 500 | House Size (Sq feet): 1900
Bought in 2000 , Price Paid: 900
Location : Farmington, NM 87401, USA
Purchased from: Select Store Type - n/a

Likes: Very efficient heating. Easy installation (DYI + a guy who knows what he's doing job).

Dislikes: 8 hour burn time perhaps a bit of a stetch.

Comments: I bought this used in the fall of 04. Ilive in Colorado at 8000 feet where it is consistently below freezing at night (and generally below 0) in the winter. My old forced air prop heater was on all the time just to keep it in the 50's. With the CV4000 my living room is 65-70+ after a few hours of burning. My upstairs stays at about 60. This may not seem extremley warm, but my house has single pane windows, and is not well insulated. I have the Wood stove burning, the forced air never comes on. This has already saved me several hundred dollars (if I had the foresight to actually cut some wood before I installed this thing I would have saved a couple hundred more!)

I was skeptical that this thing (only rated for 2000 sq feet) would even keep my living room warm. I have been very pleasantly surprised.
