Good product. One minor quality issue
Overall a nice less expensive alternative to fireplace inserts. Vendor had motor placement incorrect on web site which was replaced at no charge. Manufacturer had clamp mark damage to sheet metal. Also replaced at no charge. Tube inserts would be better if more snug and less use of fireplace morter.
Variable speed motor is nice for noise reduction. Throws out nice hot air after all was done and sealed.
Produces a lot of heat. Using a medium setting, the noise from the fan was tolerable. During a power outage I was able to run 5 hours with a portable battery. Improvements would be quieter fan, and lower wattage

Solid construction and well designed. It definitely pumps a lot of heat into the room. The motor is loud which kept me from rating excellent

I love the fact that I can shut my glass doors and still get all the heat from the unit. Most of the others require you to leave your doors open to let the blower work. I wish that the motor was just a little less noisy. It rattles a little. All in all, I have recommended this unit to quite a few people already!

The only thing I would do differently
with it would be to design in such a
way that would allow extension on each
end to fit opening. With my fireplace doors being an issue I had to have a welder friend to make a little metal piece about 3 inches to fill the small opening that was left on right side after installation. Had it not been for the doors it would have fit fine. Other than that
I am thrilled with the product and the amount of heat it throws into the room.
It along with my new doors have enabled me to burn my fireplace anytime
I want without fear of electricity going up the chimney. I'm thrilled!!!
