Location : Saugus, MA 1906, USA
Purchased from: Mail Order/Internet Retailer -

Likes: It heats up the downstairs and offsets teh cost of gas heat

Dislikes: The igniters have a life expectancy of about 2 years, and die without warning. They are a bear to replace when you have an insert, (ie rip out the stove to get at the back) and the one little igniter part costs $120.

Comments: If I realized I would be replacing a part every two years (3 igniters in 6 years) that wasn't easy to get to (up on a ladder outside disconnect the venting, then pull the stove out) I never would have bought it. Hard to justify dropping another $3,000 for a different model.
