Likes: Efficient thermostatically controlled unit heats with radiant heat. Provides heat for 1200 sq. ft. basement plus main floor until temp. drops below 20 degrees F. Will keep basement toasty warm even at -40 degrees F. Does not require a fan to spread the heat so remains operational even if the power goes out. Clean viewing window every second year.

Dislikes: None

Comments: Looked at many other gas stoves and most required a fan to spread the heat. Would recommend it unconditionally.
