Likes: Huge. Looks great. Takes long sticks.

Dislikes: EPA Exempt. Inefficient, uses too much wood per BTU. >35:1 air to fuel ratio to get legal exemption from EPA...means it puts lots of heat up the chimney, some into the room.

Comments: I need efficient heat. Napoleon won't say efficiency %. "Very inefficient" say Professors and professionals. Get EPA certified unit, or use twice as much wood.
