The unit was stated at producing 69k BTU, however, after un boxing a piece of paper hanging from the glass shows that it produces approximately 11,805-27,252 BTU/hr and is roughly 65% efficient. This was from the US EPA rating of the appliance.
After installing the unit and running the first burn there was quite a terrible smell from "seasoning" it. My second burn yielded better results with the smell greatly reduced. Just be weary, the first few burns will make your house smell like burning paint/plastic.
The little unit does a good job at putting a decent amount of heat into the house, despite the low EPA rating. Since it is a smaller unit, you must realize that it may take an hour or 2 to really get the unit hot and heating the house. I live in a 1901 square foot colonial and backed the thermostat down to 60 degrees. After 3 hours the lower level is around 65 degrees. The upper level is warming as well, a bit slower.
My main goal for the unit was not to heat the entire house, but rather lower my oil consumption. I am confident that I will save money in the long term however wish the unit produced more heat. The firebox accommodates a fairly large amount of wood and will last an estimated 6-7 hours with the air inlet closed. I believe if the fan was a bit stronger I would be able to heat the room faster.
The wood stove draws well, the fires start easier than in the fireplace, heats most of our 2200 sq. ft. home, and has definitely saved on our heating bills this winter.
There are 2 things to note before you buy: First, you'll probably have to install a stainless steel liner in your chimney to meet code/pass inspection for insurance. That was not cheap - you can price them easily. However, since the wood stove was such a good price, the insert was affordable. Second, the wood stove is relatively small as wood stoves go - when/if we replace this one, it will be bigger to allow for larger logs, and to work around inside a bit easier.
