Likes: This thing throws some made heat. I've seen huge reductions in my heating bills. My last Jan bill was 200 dollars. This years was 95 dollars. I'm not burning daily, perhaps every other or every third day. But it's made a huge difference. I work the night shift, it's common for me to stuff it full of would at 930pm, get home at 630am, and there are still enough coals to restart if I used Oak.

I usually keep my basement at 60 degrees. When burning, If I keep tossing in wood and leave the fan on High, I can get it up to 80.

Dislikes: It makes an annoying Hum when I use the air control. Does anyone else get this? It's non stop!

I live in a split level house. It doesn't seem to get the heat upstairs. However, I have a narrow hallway, and my house doesn't have forced heat. So other people with air vents would probably have better luck. I'm going to install some vents with a fan system to blow the heat upstairs. I can't blame the fireplace for this.

Comments: Overall happy and would recommend.

Do not go to fireside in Eagan MN. These guys said my prefabricated box could not fit an insert. They wanted 12k just to demolish my brick wall before putting in a new fireplace. I then went to Twin City Fireplace, the guys name was Chris. He was able to make cuts to the firebox and installed a new insert all for around 4k. I don't remember the exact price, but I saved thousands. I'm pretty sure Fireside in Eagan was trying to screw me.
