Room Size (Sq ft): | House Size (Sq feet): 3000
Bought in 2009 , Price Paid: 3500
Location : orange county, new y , us
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - north star

Likes: I purchased the 36\" elite and it does a wonderful job heating the house. We get cold winters and this stove kept up real well. The unit is really attractive and completed our living room, tons of compliments.

Dislikes: I cannot seem to obtain the 12 hour burn that is advertised. I changed the gasget and use only seasoned hard woods, but only get a 6-8 hr burn. Not bad at all though.

Comments: Costly unit but will make up the money fast with the amount of heat this thing throws out. North Star company was great and informative. Glass does get dark but no big deal. I would highly recommend this stove/furnace to all.
