    Is there any way to reverse the door handle to the other side? And what is the absolute minimum height to install this in the masonry fireplace? Are you able to attach the liner from the inside of this unit?

    There is no way to reverse the door opening. The minimum chimney height is 15', including the height of the unit as well. The liner can only be attached from the outside of the unit.

    I have a superior model # BR-36-2 prefab insert. Will this unit fit into it?
    1 Answers
    The BR-36-2 is a unit that is not rated for vent free gas logs, grate heaters, or fireplace inserts. The BR-36-2 was a builder grade version of the standard BR-36 and uses no internal insulation and uses a lighter gauge of sheet metal. As such, the heat generated by the previously mentioned products could result in a dangerous amount of transfer to surrounding framing.

    October 21, 2016
    Contrary to the manual, it appears the flue opening is not quite 6," but a little over (like 6 q/4 - see pic). Regular flue line adapters seem too small for it. Does anyone know how or where to order the correct adapter?
    1 Answers
    The issue may be that you are attempting to attach the 6" flue liner directly to the insert and this is not the proper procedure. Hearth product manufacturers will refer to chimney measurements by the inner diameter. The insert flue collar's inner diameter will be 6" with the outer diameter being 1/4" larger. The chimney liner will also have a 6" inner diameter with a slightly larger outside diameter. The correct transitional component to attach the 6" chimney liner to a 6" insert flue collar will be a Connector-Adaptor.

    October 15, 2016
    I broke the vermiculite baffle while I was putting the stove back together, finishing up the install. Do I need to replace it? Or, will it be fine in two pieces?
    1 Answers
    Because of the low airflow that moves through a closed combustion stove, there is not much upward lift against the baffle. The baffle can be placed carefully back together and used in this state; you may experience a small amount of incidental leakage through the gap in the baffle, but there should not be anything that makes it past the upper insulation blanket.

    Does this unit have an ash pan?
    1 Answers
    Unfortunately, no. The overhead height of fireplace inserts is very limited, which prevents the use of an ash drawer of any kind. The best solution is to purchase a double bottom ash bucket and scoop most of the ashes from the unit while it is still burning. A small bed of ashes should remain for best operation.

    We have a Superior wood burning fireplace that was installed in 1987. The firebox dimensions are 29" FW, 11" BW, 18" H, and 14" D. Now the actual opening is 36" wide and 31" high and about 18" deep. Wouldn't I have to remove the old firebox to install this Drolet Escape 1400 wood burning fireplace insert with blower? Could I just leave the brick structure into which I would install this insert?
    1 Answers
    If the current Superior fireplace is installed into a true all brick enclosure with no hidden framing and has a true masonry chimney, you can indeed install the fireplace insert in place of the existing unit.

    from Lansing, MI asked:
    January 30, 2015
    What is involved in installing an insert? Is a stove pipe involved? What is involved in maintenance / cleaning?
    1 Answers
    Installation of a fireplace insert generally involves the insert itself and a flexible liner, top plate, and cap. The chimney should be swept prior to installation of the insert. The insert should be swept at least once a season to ensure creosote does not build up to dangerous levels. Periodic inspection of the baffles should also be done. The reduction on heating costs will vary greatly based on the size of your home, insulation, your fire building skills, and position of the insert within the home. On average, regular use and a central location in a home with average insulation will give a 40 to 50 percent reduction in energy costs.

    My blower won't stay running. The fire is extremely hot and the blower works for roughly 2 minutes, quits, then starts again after about 4 to 5 minutes. Where is the thermostat located on this blower?
    1 Answers
    The problem is likely attributed to a bad thermal switch. The thermal switch is located inside the blower housing, on the vertical wall that is facing the insert itself. To test the system, I recommend bypassing the switch to ensure continuous fan operation.

    Where exactly is the small opening in the interior that is used when outside air is not being used? How do we keep the outside air from going into the house through the small opening when the unit is not in use?
    1 Answers
    The air opening for this stove is at the very bottom front of the firebox, just ahead of the first row of firebricks that lay upon the floor of the unit. Additional combustion air feeds the fire through the secondary air tubes in the ceiling of the firebox. When outside air is used, it is important to keep the door of the unit closed when it is not in use. This will keep any cold outside air from bleeding into the room, as the door is gasketed.

    A grate is not used with the modern EPA inserts. Because the combustion chamber is small and well insulated, the logs lay directly upon the bottom firebrick and do not require a grate for ventilation.

    No, I stack two pieces of wood longways in the bottom put newspaper between them, then I stack wood on top of that perpendicularly. I continue this up till I have 4 or 4 stacks high then light newspaper...works great.. Leave plenty of gaps for air and you should be good to go..

    1 Answers
    This unit is rated for use in a manufactured fireplace and has provisions for outside combustion air, which are both necessary requisites to installation in a prefab unit in a manufactured home. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any information on your model of Marco fireplace to see if it is rated for an insert and is large enough to hold one. Marco was absorbed into Lennox Hearth Products, who we are not a dealer for. I recommend contacting Lennox to see if they may have additional information about ratings for your Marco fireplace. I apologize that I do not have access to this information.

    How do you maintain your fire? I don't have much of a place for a bed of coals. Do you continue to take out your fire bed so it won't come out the door when you open it? It seems like it should be deeper. I just bought it used and I am wondering about that. It took a long time to get going. Also there is no positive draft under the wood. I have a brand new 6" pipe from stove to the top of the old fireplace sealed with a cap. Can you help me troubleshoot this?
    1 Answers
    EPA stoves and inserts do indeed have a smaller firebox than older models. After the initial lighting of the kindling fire and addition of the main fuel load, there is no other maintenance of the fire necessary. These stoves produce a great amount of heat by utilizing all the fuel that they are supplied with, leaving very little ash behind. While they do have a primary air supply, the stoves function mostly by the secondary combustion air that is fed from the tubes in the top of the firebox. Typically, a 6 inch liner or Class A chimney pipe is used to vent the unit through an existing larger chimney.

    Where does the Drolet bit get it's fresh air from,inside and outside? What I mean is most stoves get their air in front by the door, and I don't see an entrance for it.
    1 Answers
    This model of insert is able to use inside or outside air for combustion. When set up for indoor air, there is a damper control handle that opens a sliding flap on the underside of the firebox, which allows air to enter the firebox through a small opening in the interior. When set up for outside air, there is a knockout on the side of the firebox that allows the attachment of an adapter and flex hose. The slider will still control air flow.

    I have a manufactured home with a fireplace. I am looking for an insert for the existing fireplace. But, it is only 14 inches deep. Is there an insert to fit?
    1 Answers
    A small insert, such as the Osburn 1100 High Efficiency EPA Woodburning Insert with Blower could likely work for your installation. This model requires 13 inches of depth and only needs 26 inches of width to fit properly. I do recommend measuring your fireplace to ensure that there is 26 inches of width at that 13 inch depth point.

    1 Answers
    For your installation, the Napoleon EPA Wood Burning Fireplace Insert - EPI-1402 would be an excellent choice. It requires very little depth to fit and would do well to heat your 1,800 square foot area. However, approximately 10 inches of the appliance must project on to your hearth. Does your prefab unit have a hearth that would support the front of the unit? Please advise at your convenience.

    What kind of construction is required to create a new fireplace for a wood insert? Can the area be lined with concrete backer board, like what you use under tiles, or do I need to build a brick fireplace? Do I need to get a steel pre-fab fireplaces? If I do build it in, and use cultured stone for the front, can I take that right up to the edge of the insert, or do I still need the face plate?
    1 Answers
    The minimum requirement for a wood burning insert to be installed is to have a masonry enclosure constructed that would completely surround the insert. A factory built class A chimney could then be attached to the top of the enclosure, venting the appliance to the termination. Installing the insert into a pre-fab fireplace is certainly an option as well, but this often proves to be a more difficult route to pursue. In most cases, the flue collar of the insert does not line up with the collar of the pre-fab box. There is also not a UL listing for this type of installation, so many building inspectors will not pass it. It is possible to build the masonry enclosure and use the cultured stone you mention to completely enclose the unit, however you will still want to leave some access around the insert for removal and service. It is possible to have the surround cut down by a metal shop so that it does not appear so large. You may consider an option such as the Flame Monaco XTD EPA Zero Clearance Wood Burning Fireplace, as this unit features greater heating capacity and efficiency than most inserts and can also be built into a combustible enclosure. Class A chimney pipe can then be used to vent the unit.

    This model of insert can be utilized in an existing manufactured fireplace. However, the maker of the fireplace must clearly state that the unit is able to accept a wood burning insert. If the manufactured unit is not listed to accept an insert, clearances to combustible framing may become inadequate and a fire can result.

    Happy eFireplaceStore shopper
    Although I frequently shop online, I initially looked at fireplace inserts at local brick and mortar stores figuring that an item of this size and weight would not be a candidate for an internet purchase. However, after seeing the high prices of our local vendors, I discovered this company and found near universal praise for it. Furthermore, this website was easy to navigate and contained useful product reviews from customers. Importantly, the price was much lower than comparable inserts sold locally. I emailed this company with a couple of questions (e.g., on which side is the blower cord) and received a thorough and prompt reply. The insert and faceplate arrived promptly and in perfect condition. The people who installed the insert and the chimney liner were impressed with the quality of the Drolet and were even more impressed when I told them the price.

    Great product , needs better directions.
    Have had the fireplace installed for a couple of weeks now, and it works quite well. Live in NC and heat with Propane. I have been setting the thermostat at 69 deg. and the fireplace has been able to keep the temperature around 73 deg. even with outside temps in the 20's. Should pay for itself this year or the next season. Ended up having to order another part before I could finish install. Could not use the original fireplace in the mean time. I had downloaded the install manual ahead of time but the part where you attach the the liner to the fireplace is about as vague, with a poor picture as it gets. Oddly the offset ,the extra part I had to order, had better instructions for installing the entire system then the fireplace manual did. Reading the reviews other people complained of the same thing, but I am an Electrical contractor and pretty handy, I figured I could figure it out and I did. Over all install very easy. My rating of the product itself so far is a 5 lost one star due to the process.
    ProsEasy Install, Good product, Does what I need it to. And by easy I mean the actual process took less than a couple of hrs. with good directions probably could have done it in a half hr..
    Cons Poor Instructions almost pulled my hair out trying to figure out what I needed up front, spent hrs doing research before I purchsed and still ended up having to get another part

    Pros and Cons
    I have mixed feelings about this fireplace insert. The product was delivered promptly, is sturdy, and is well constructed. Despite its sturdiness, however, some of the sheet metal bent during shipping, but I was able to straighten it. I also noticed that the paint on top of the unit was flaking off, but this area is hidden once the insert is installed. The installation instructions were rather confusing, in my opinion. I did purchase the six inch offset piece to help with positioning the unit. I did not realized that I also needed the stainless steel exhaust and so was forced to wait for that to arrive before installing the unit. Now that it is in place, it does a great job of heating the surrounding area. It is a very efficient fire burner, although my 20 foot fireplace does get a bit smoky when I start the fire. Overall, it is a good buy for the price that I paid.

    Outstanding Fireplace Insert
    This insert is wonderful. It stands far above all other units that I considered when efficiency, price, and blower quality are taken into consideration. Even my chimney sweep confirmed that the unit is worth much more than the price that I paid for it. He installed my unit and a five-foot chimney liner and insulated the interior of my fireplace. I assembled the backsplash myself and found it to be a fairly simple process despite the somewhat unclear instructions. I am still experimenting to find the perfect draft setting, but that will come with time. I have not really had trouble keeping the glass clean. When it does get a little dirty, a damp rag dipped in cool ashes cleans it wonderfully. I highly recommend this fireplace insert as an outstanding unit for an excellent price.

    Heats Like a Dream!
    After two warm winters of burning with this stove, I can put down my stamp of approval. It will completely heat my 1800 square foot house (although a little extra circulation is required to get heat to the back rooms, but that is to be expected), and the blower works very well. The temperature-sensing blower is a really nice addition, and it helps make sure the insert doesn't get too hot! Other than a flexible chimney liner, it is ready to be installed to heat your home!

    I have been pleasantly surprised with the heating capabilities of this stove. It keeps my 2000 square foot Cape Cod between 65 and 70 degrees. I also have baseboard heat but have used less than 150 gallons of fuel since purchasing this wood stove. I have had a little trouble keeping the fire going overnight when it is very cold outside, but I think that is more the fault of my home's poor insulation than the stove. I would strongly recommend this stove to anyone who asks.

    Small Firebox
    The low price compared to other models is why I decided to purchase this particular insert. I hired a professional to install it and was able to use it in short order. On low, it heats my kitchen (15 x 40) and sunroom (15 x 30) to a comfortable 73 degrees, despite the cold New England winter outside. In my opinion, this a great value for the price and has my full recommendation. My only complaint is the smallness of the firebox. Even though I stuff it full when I go to bed, there are no warm coals in the morning to restart the fire.

    You Can't Beat It
    One of the negative reviews that I read surprised me very much. Even though the reviewer said that the stove does not come with a cover, my unit came with a cover when I received it (and there were no extra charges). I am convinced that this unit outperforms other units of the same size in every aspect. I actually think that they might be underestimating the official efficiency by a bit. Even though the winter temperatures where I live are very cold (it can easily get down to subzero temperatures), this stove can heat my house by itself until it gets to less than 10 degrees. After it gets down that low, I only have to turn on the furnace for several minutes before I need to turn it back off again. It is very easy to start a fire in this unit, especially since the fire box keeps coals smoldering for such a long time.

    Works Well Even in the North
    I was a little hesitant about this stove, especially since people living in the southern part of the country wrote most of the reviews that I saw. I didn't need to be concerned though as it has performed very well. Installation went fairly smoothly, although I would have preferred more information on how to attach the chimney liner. The size of the firebox was a little concerning, but we found that it held more than its appearance suggests. After burning three small fires to cure the paint, we gave the stove a real test. Outside was in the mid-30s with wind and a mix of rain and snow. The stove kept the temperature indoors at a comfortable 72 degrees with only the help of one ceiling fan. Compared with other similar stoves, this one is inexpensive yet burns extremely efficiently. My wife and I are very impressed with this stove.

    Cheaper than Comparable Items
    I found this insert to be much more cost effective than anything available at the stores near my home. Thanks to its secure packaging, it arrived quickly and undamaged. Once installed, it keeps the main area of our 1000 square foot New England home at around 76 degrees. The back rooms are a little cooler but not much. Instead of carrying blankets with us, we now wear t-shirts or light pajamas at night. Once we get a good fire going and have a bed of hot coals, we only burn one or two pieces of wood every hour. The unit does get very hot, so I would advise purchasing a set of long fireplace tool for use with it. If you need to move the insert, I would recommend taking all but the top firebricks out of the unit. It makes it much lighter to move, but you need to ensure that you replace them exactly as they were.

    Produces Little Soot
    Due to its efficient heat production, this fireplace insert has more than covered its cost in the time that we have had it. The fire burns well with minimum soot production. Our fall chimney inspection was astounding in the small amount of soot that was present. While this may be partly due to good quality wood, the insert's burning efficiency is certainly a contributing factor. We found it quite simple to install, and the maintenance has been very easy as well. Even our cats curl up by it to enjoy the warmth.

    Exceeded Expectations
    I bought this fireplace insert about a month ago after doing a lot of research. The Drolet insert had the best reviews for the cost. I did not really expect the unit to be able to heat the advertised space, but it has exceeded my expectations. Its heat reaches nearly every part of my 1800 square foot ranch home, and my gas use has dropped significantly. I have found it easy to start fires and keep them going. The unit does not require a lot of wood, but it stays warm for as long as ten hours.

    Not Pleased
    I had high hopes for this stove, and I can't say that I am entirely pleased. When I bought this size of stove, I wanted much more heat than this unit actually puts out. This stove has managed to remain airtight, and I suppose it is a little easier on the amount of fuel used (my last stove had problems with this). One of my biggest gripes with this stove is the lack of a good damper. Although you can change the amount of air it pulls into the flames, the change is minimal at best. Unfortunately, this means that even though I adjusted it to the lowest possible setting, I still couldn't get the fire to last the entire night. I'm still using it now, but I know there are better models out there.

    Inexpensive Yet Effective
    We were looking for an inexpensive insert and found this product. It is well constructed but does not have a lot of fancy features. Installation of the insert and a six inch chimney liner took us one afternoon. The blower is very quiet, but it does seem to take a long time for the thermostat to decide that the temperature of the fire is hot enough to turn it on. I would recommend using a magnetic thermometer to measure the stove temperature, especially during the first few uses while the paint is curing. The stove drafts quite well even on cold days. Keeping the fires burning hot also keeps the glass in the door clean. A moist towel dipped in the ashes will do the trick when it becomes dirty. Due to the size of the stove, logs should be less than 18 inches, but with the firebox stuffed full and the vent closed, the fire will last for eight to ten hours with a remnant of hot coals. Our home is in coastal Maryland, yet the stove keeps more than 2500 square feet near 65 degrees.

    Cuts Back on Wood
    Although this insert was a little difficult to install, I have had great results all winter! It has cut back the wood I burn from nine to three cords. Even though my house is quite drafty, this insert keeps my furnace from running. Once the fire is lit and the fan starts blowing, I can have the whole house ten degrees warmer in just an hour, and a small fire will keep the house cozy all day. I am very impressed!

    Difficult Assembly but Excellent Heating
    I installed my insert in 2009. I found the instructions lacking in specific installation directions, especially concerning the metal trim. Because I'm mechanically minded, I did find a way to assemble and attach the trim, but was disappointed in the instructions. Furthermore, there were a couple of inconsistencies regarding the description of the insert and what it actually is. For instance, the product description indicated that its output is 60,000 BTUs, when the label on the insert itself says 30,000 BTU output. The description also contained no parameters for the size of the opening. In order for mine to fit properly, I had to build up the base with bricks. Other reviews had not stated that it takes an hour for the fire to burn before the blower will operate. After it does, however, the insert heats my entire basement satisfactorily.

    Poor Installation Manual
    I purchased this insert because of all the positive reviews that I found, and I was not disappointed. I received the item very quickly and got it installed, but I found the installation manual to be less than helpful. The installed product, however, works just as it was described. The fan turns on when the fire gets hot and is very quiet. Once the fire is underway, closing the damper almost entirely will allow just enough air to keep the fire going slowly. This is a great insert for the price that I paid. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an inexpensive yet effective insert.

    Incredible Heat Output
    I have used this stove for a full year and am very pleased with it. The hearth is rather large for the size of the insert, so I installed an insulated chimney liner and stuffed bulk insulation into any empty spaces. I also allowed the insert's air intake to access that of the hearth so that it has an outside air supply. I also burn locally seasoned wood. All these factors combined have resulted in an incredible heat output. Even with below freezing temperatures outside, this stove can actually overheat my home. I recommend bypassing the stove's thermostat and simply using the fan switch. This change allows you to have when you want it rather than waiting for the thermostat to turn on the blower.

    After Installing, You'll Love It
    After two winters of using this stove, I can say that I would definitely buy it again. It brought my gas bill down to below $60 a month (no mean feat, I can assure you), and because it is so efficient I also was able to qualify for a government energy rebate. In order to increase the air flow in the stove, I recommend that you get a nice, flexible chimney liner (it will also remove a lot of the hassle from cleaning your flue). There is one thing I need to mention about installing this stove. It is big, and it is heavy. Definitely get some help when installing it. Also, you might have some issues with fitting the stove along with your previous damper. If you do, expect to get dirty, and you might have to add a little bit of extra pipe to get it to attach to the liner.

    Stove Has Exceeded Expectations
    We have a guest house and decided to install this insert into the 1200 square foot building. In short, we are pleased to report that this stove has more that succeeded in beating all of our expectations. It uses surprisingly little wood, and has significantly helped us in keeping our electric bills low. This is a product that we would highly recommend to any interested shopper.

    Very Oil Efficient
    I purchased this stove a few years ago and have been very pleased with it. I found the manual to be a little vague in its installation instructions. Certain sections of the assembly took me a while to figure out, and I eventually had to get a professional to assist me with the liner. I have been very impressed with the stove's efficient use of oil. The first year that I used it, I only purchased two 50 gallon containers of oil, and that was only because I requested automatic deliveries. The next year was a very cold winter, but I used only half of my 275 gallon tank. This stove is a great cost saving device.

    Fits the Bill - Lowers Your Bill
    It was exciting to see that this stove fit the bill perfectly to substantially reduce my propane bill this past winter. Plus, installing a new chimney liner greatly increased the draft, so it’s easy for everyone in the family to start a fire in the stove now. It’s a great price for a great stove that burns long - all night - and restarts easy with the hot coals. Having an air wash system allows you to see the flame very well and the glass window is easy to clean with a damp rag. It will be interesting to see how much propane I will save next winter. Reviews on this stove were all true. Installation was easy except for some minor issues with the clips and screws while putting the faceplate together. Just be careful that the bottom of the faceplate doesn’t block the airflow during installation. Double check to make sure there isn’t any residual cardboard left inside the stove before you start a fire. After using the stove for several weeks, we noticed it had warped but there are jack bolts included to stabilize the stove if this happens.

    Small Insert, Good Heat
    Though this insert is smaller than I expected it to be, it is very attractive and it heats well. To make sure you receive the item you order, check the serial number against the product description.

    Lots of Extra Warmth
    I chose this particular fireplace insert after doing a lot of research on the product and the price. The insert arrived quickly and was in fairly good condition with only a few loose bricks. It took both my wife and I to place the insert into the fireplace, but once in place, it filled the space perfectly. The fireplace does not heat the entire house, but it does provide a lot of extra warmth that reduces the amount of heat required from other sources. I eventually chose to bypass the thermostat, since it seemed that it took a long time for the blower to kick in, and it was easily controlled using the fan's on/off switch. I am able to keep the glass clean using a paste made from the ashes and a soft scrub pad. An included ash pan would have been a helpful feature.

    Well Designed, Sketchy Instructions
    The assembly instructions on my insert were a little sketchy, but I was able to successfully complete installation after I thought about it a bit. The design is pleasing; I especially happy with the self cleaning glass door. It takes a while for the blower to come on after a fire is started, but that is the intended design. I wish the firebox were a little bigger. The gasket dislodged from the track at the bottom of the door during the first used, but I stuffed it back and it has stayed put ever since.

    Good Supplementary Heat Source
    This insert was purchased for my 1,700 square foot Victorian house to be installed in an existing but disused fireplace. I first lined the existing fireplace with a Duravent SS liner. The insert is compact, it was still a little too large for the opening, but it fit well after I removed some of the fireplace bricks. Our first fire lasted about five hours which was the length of time I expected from other customer reviews. I think the burn time can be increased to seven hours with proper wood choices and fire tending. The blower, even on high is not loud enough to be annoying. The insert heats the space adequately; however, a larger unit would be needed for more square footage.

    Best Value on the Market
    After extensive research, I found my Drolet insert to be an exceptional value. It easily holds 18" to 19" logs and has a long burn time, even if it does not last all night. It easily heats my 1,600 square foot home. I had a professional to install this unit, and used the recommended chimney liner. The stove lights easily and does not smoke up the room as long as the choke is pulled all the way out when the fire is being lit. The variable fan speed is handy and helps me control the amount of heat realeased into the room. The blower makes an irritating sound since it rattles and vibrates. I remedied this problem by placing a shim under the unit. Unfortunately, a customer wouldn't know if if his unit's fan would vibrate until after installation and use since the fan is heat activated. Otherwise, I like my insert. The glass front really does stay clean by itself, the gasket works well, and the choke is easy to manipulate. I would recommend purchasing a magnetic thermometer to indicate the heat at which the choke should be adjusted.

    Strong and Capable Product
    As I was looking for a replacement stove to heat our home, this one caught my eye. My priority was getting a powerful unit that could save me money on propane, and this one certainly does the trick. With a little maintenance and daily attention, the stove is easy to use and puts out a lot of heat. I found that while installing it, I did need to be very precise and detail-oriented in order to get everything in place just right. For a good price, this unit has served us well even in very cold weather, and my family enjoys both the way it works and the way it looks.

    A Wonder to Behold
    From the get go, I was quite impressed with this stove. I had placed the order for the stove on a Friday, and the following Thursday discovered that it had arrived in my driveway. The packaging was quite effective, and once I had gotten it out of the rate, I discovered a handsome looking appliance in pristine condition. It took two people to install it, but overall, the process was quite easy to accomplish. Once installed, I did all of the necessary calking and let it dry overnight. I fully expect it to do an excellent job of reducing my electric bills in the winter, and the one item that is my favorite is the blower system.

    Cannot Go Wrong With This Terrific Heater
    This particular stove was installed in my home in March, and so far this year I have needed to use it six times due to very cold spring weather. In each case, it has done the job remarkably well. One piece of advice that I would like to pass along is that you invest in a 45 degree stainless steel elbow to help with the ventilation. This aside, the blower that is included in this stove runs very quietly. The long and short of it is that if you are looking for the perfect heater to install in your residence, then this item is exactly what you want to get.

    Very Simple to Install
    This insert was so simple to install that it only took two people about two hours to do the job. I ran a six inch stainless steel liner all of the thirteen feet from the insert to the top of the chimney. I found it to be very effective at heat production. With the fan at half power, it will heat my entire split level home to 75 degrees. Since I have a corner fireplace, I chose not to use the front flashing, but the fireplace looks just fine as it is.

    A Great Value
    After using this unit for one winter, I am very impressed with its performance and value. I have supplied it with both compressed sawdust logs and cordwood for great fires. The unit has a good draft, and its heat output is great. I would recommend using the blower though to effectively disseminate the heat through your home. In my opinion, this product is a great value.

    Works Well But Doesn't Heat Whole House
    I purchased this insert for my 1,500 square foot house. On a very cold day with the fire burning and the blower going, my house's average temperature is 65 degrees. The self cleaning door lives up to its claim; I never have to worry with cleaning it and it stays clear. The blower, however, is rather noisy and causes an annoying vibration with the ash shield which I toned down with a firebrick. Overall, I'm satisfied with my insert because it was worth the money and has probably paid for itself by now; but I do occasionally have to use my existing forced air heat.

    Excellent, Efficient Choice
    When first purchasing this unit, I figured it would heat very well, but that the blower would look kind of intrusive. I am pleased to say that even though I was right about it heating our 1600 square foot house very well, I was dead wrong about the blower. It works very well, and it matches the stove so well that we don't even notice it is there. It was simple to get into our fireplace, and the rest of the installation was a breeze. It is also easy to clean because of how much of the wood burns!

    Easy Installation And Awesome Price
    The process of installing this product was quite easy, and the price was outstanding. One thing that is important to remember is to make sure that all of the clips are put on the floor properly during the installation process.

    Good Product, Could Use a Few Improvements
    If this insert's shipping weight is any indication of quality, I can vouch for the all-metal sturdy construction. When our insert was delivered, I was pleased to find all the parts included. The stove heats 1,600 square feet efficiently with a burn time of approximately six to eight hours. Our insert is located in an addition to the back of our 2,400 square foot home. When temperatures fall into the teens, the stove still takes the chill off the rooms. One improvement to the design would be moving the fan the side of the unit; because the blower is located under the firebox, ashes and dust can be blown into the room when the stove door is opened, so I have to keep the firebox very clean. Another improvement might be a larger firebox. I'm much more pleased with this insert than my previous metal heatform fireplace.

    Great Savings, Hard to Get Parts
    My insert is good quality, has saved me a great deal in heating expenses, and is very efficient. This insert required the purchase of a double wall flexible stainless steel chimney liner, a $600 expense I was not expecting. I have found it difficult to find parts because the factory requires that parts be purchased only through certified dealers, and the parts are rather expensive.

    Very Pleased Overall
    This wood stove has met my needs very well. It has kept my entire 2100 square foot ranch home around seventy degrees throughout the winter, except for those few times when the temperature dipped into the single digits. The stove's firebox seems a bit small, but I am able to fill it before going to bed and still have coals remaining when I get up the next morning. It does take a little while for the thermostat to turn on the blower, but I found that the problem was helped by starting the fire in the corner near the thermostat. To save money, I chose not to install a chimney liner, and it has done fine. I would caution anyone choosing to follow my example to make sure that your wood is very dry before burning it. I found that the glass insert stayed fairly clean as long as the draft is good. Overall, I am very pleased with this stove.
