Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 294 | House Size (Sq feet): 1500
Bought in 2011 , Price Paid: 1400
Location : Tuscola, IL 61953, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - S&S Heating

Likes: It is a very nice looking unit. It is easy to operate with just one air control. The fan and convection supplies more heat from the unit than radiant alone. Seems to be well made cast stove that is put together with gaskets instead of stove cement. Small and fits with small rooms.

Dislikes: Small fire box, short burn times. The stove manual has conflicting information regarding hearth protection under the stove. The sticker on the back and page 8 seem to indicate non-combustible ember protection only unless using the short legs. Page 11 however says thermal protection is required with either long or short legs.

Comments: I purchased this unit for our kitchen and wanted a small stove. It has decent clearances to combustibles, especially with double wall pipe.
