Bought in 2015 , Price Paid:
Location : west monroe, louis 71292, USA
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - arkansas stone

Likes: Looks are about the only pro

Dislikes: Burn rate adjustment travel is about one inch and really doesnt make any difference where it is set.
I have 2x6 walls, foam insulation on all 2200 sqft and i have used a cord of wood already here is north Louisiana and most nights were in mid 40s and days in the 60-70 degree range and this insert still cant do the job.
The burn time is NOT as advertised. It is not 10 hours or 8 hours and at best its 4 hours on a full load. We went to bet at 10pm last night with it full, at 1:37am i had to add wood and at 6am is was empty again and my furnace running at 67 degrees. My last stove was a LOPI and i burnt half the amount of wood and usually too warm in the house.
The mnfg does not list a 800 number and refers you back to the retail store where all they know is to sell". I thought only Facebook ran that type of business !!
