Room Size (Sq ft): | House Size (Sq feet): 3000
Bought in 2005 , Price Paid: 3500
Location : Sout;hfield, Mi , usa
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Solleys

Likes: * Allows you to use larger logs for burning all night.
* Allows variations in set-up for different types of plans

Dislikes: Could use different door handles... they get too hot and gloves are required to open the doors

Comments: We have a 3000 square foot house with a fairly open plan. I can raise the temperature of the entire house 10 degrees per hour using this unit and maintain it all night with little effort...in Southfield Michigan! We burn wood daily and it really helps with keeping our gas bills down. And its a good method of recycling too!
