Likes: The only sensible way to truly get the most out of a fireplace in a home. Radiant heat and heat blown into the room. Beautiful view of a burning fire.
Much sturdier engineering than other brands we checked out.

Dislikes: We don't have experience with any other fireplace inserts so have nothing to compare to. We haven't come up with any negatives so far.

Comments: We never really enjoyed our fireplace from the time we bought our house in 1998 until we installed the Summit insert Series - C in 2016. I had no idea that we could get so much warmth from a fire in the fireplace AND enjoy watching a beautiful fire. The way our family room is configured in the home a good fire in our insert warms the family room, kitchen and foyer and the heat rises and warms all the bedrooms upstairs. We love watching the secondary burn of the smoke from the baffle system. The stove burns efficiently and contributes tremendous warmth to the home. We love it!
