Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Earth Sense Energy Systems

Likes: Lots of heat. House has never been so toasty. We used to heat with oil forced air which we kept at 68 degrees with a setback to 64. Wife was always bundled up in the house, she wears shorts now. Installation was easy. We built it into a corner and vented it directly out the wall. We go through about a bag a day with most of the house at 72 degrees. At this rate, we would have to continue this usage all year long to equal what the $3/gallon of oil would have cost us this winter.

Dislikes: Fan is kind of noisy. We built our tv into the area above the insert. At first I did not have the stereo hooked up yet and the tv was being muffled by the stove, but now that I have the stereo hooked up with the tv it is fine.

Comments: I would definitely purchase this again. Price included insert, piping, and 1/2 ton of pellets.
