Other Information about the Home and Stove

Bought in 2019 , Price Paid: $2300 CAD
Location : Peterborough, Ontario , Canada
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Fires Alive

Likes: Attractive, very easy to light, draws great, easy to clean ashes, adequate burn time and easily heats almost 1000 sq ft at -20C and lower. In fact, we don’t load it right up because it gets the living room a bit too warm, unless we are going out and don’t want the propane backup to come on. So, it could heat a larger space quite well. No smoke when you open the door, which is a huge difference from the old stove, and after a month the door glass is still crystal clear. The front-to-back burn always yields an attractive fire to enjoy.

Dislikes: Nothing comes to mind.

Comments: Masonry chimney is steel lined. Would highly recommend Fires Alive in Ptbo, who sold and installed the stove. The stove is steel wi5h exterior cast iron panels.
