Wood loads linear, preventing accidental rollouts. Firebox holds about 2-4 hours of burn time wood, depending on the quality of the wood. Heat exchange very good. Damper very effective. Easy to clean and maintain. Noticeably more efficient than the heat exchange fireplace it was inserted into.
Blower rheostat spotty in settings. Manufacturer supplied replacement but was delayed (we were told) because of the number they were replacing. On high the fan was a little to loud for my comfort but was resolved by turning it down a bit.
