Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 480 | House Size (Sq feet): 2400
Bought in 2015 , Price Paid: $2,100
Location : Middletown, DE 19709, USA
Purchased from: Stove Dealer - Bylers

Likes: Well built, love the look of the Venice for our room. Produces plenty of heat. Cost of unit was very competitive. Factory incentive for springtime purchases at the time of my purchase. I would not hesitate to buy again.

Dislikes: My 28' chimney creates to much draft for the factory primary air setting. Had to remove the "stop bolt" to be able to control my draft due to its height.

Comments: Inserted this unit into a zero clearance fireplace and used an insulated 6" liner inside of the original 8" pre-manufactured chimney. I can run this stove overnight with plenty of coals in the morning and the blower still running. Has been a great supplemental heat source (my household heater does not run nearly as much). Cut my firewood consumption down by half even with burning overnight.
