Location : Westerly, RI 2891, USA
Purchased from: HVAC Contractor -

Likes: Cheap?

Dislikes: Smokes into house, fan that circulates heat really is not effective and just produces noise, the insulating brick is falling apart, this unit just isn't built for having fires on a regulare basis.

Comments: If you are going to have one of these units installed be ready to be disappointed with it and when you decide you would really rather have a wood burning stove be prepared to have the entire chimney removed as you cannot hook up the chimney that comes with these cheap units to a wood burning stove! I hate this thing, it is only good for looks and the occasional fire during the holiday season.
