Location : Ottawa, Ontar , Canada
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - The Fireplace Center
Easy loading, very good heat output, easy to manage fire (Good draft), The door stays very clean and provides a beautiful ambiance. (Temperatures exceeding -30 C this year... keep stove stoked on a low burn keeps 1800 sqft. 25 year old split level house at a constant 70-72 C overnight)
Fan rattles intermittantly with various degree's of loudness as the stove heats up or as heat dissipates. (Going to take it back to dealer).
Ash box could be larger for the size of the the firebox.
Gives a good 4-5 hrs. burn time when fully stoked (Using a seasoned hardwood mix - birch, oak, maple, beech, ash). I have fought with numerous old wood stoves over the years, this stove is worth the money and I wish I had bought one earlier.
