Just wanted to post a quick review. I installed this at my previous residence and loved it. Pros: the design matched our home the integrated fan put off a lot of heat easy to clean Cons: minor- a metal piece inside the firebox would fall down if I bumped it with a log. Dealer was no help. it shielded the ceramic blanket that sat atop the baffle. I would just pull it out till the fire died down and with time my technique was more delicate. If I lived there more than the two burning seasons I would have created a permanent solution. Overall we were extremely pleased and would install the same thing again at that house based on function/design. 2500sq foot home built in 2000 cap cod. It heated the upstairs and main living area well - the main living area opens to the upstairs. The rest of the first floor was much cooler.
