This stove does put out some heat. The glass door is nice, and with a decent draft it should stay fairly clean. Instead of a variable speed blower, add an ash pit tray and a grate. Also, the firebrick was cracked when it arrived. Spaces between the brick are so large, the metal back of the stove could be seen. Solution: Refractory (Rutland) cement in a tube! The door handle can get really hot, so something different should be done here.
Doesn't put out that much heat my house is 1200sq feet and only heats the living room area. Still better then the $5900 the fireplace guy wanted to fix my fire place
Fan stopped working same day I installed fireplace!
A+service....as described...100% satisfied...burns good and puts out a lot of heat..using it for backup heat just in case something happens
