Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 650 | House Size (Sq feet): 2000
Bought in 2009 , Price Paid: $2,200.
Location : Peterborough, NH 3458, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Fireplace Village

Likes: Starts easily. Runs beautifully. Very simple air control that is simple to use. It is extremely well made and lovely to look at. If you burn the fire clean, the glass door stays clean and the flames are just as mesmerizing as those in an open fireplace. It does everything I could want it to do.

Dislikes: It is not an overnight burner. It likes to be tended every couple of hours.

Comments: We have a 2000 square foot home on one level. It is almost new and very well insulated. With an outside temperature of 7 degrees F and some wind plowing, the stove maintained the living area at 78F and the bedrooms at 65-70F without being pushed at all (top surface temperature of 400 to 450F). We bought the optional blue/black enamel finish and love it. It is a truly fine stove. Fireplace Village did a very good installation job.
