  • Digital thermostat monitors temperature and maintains comfort.
  • Heats up to 2,000 sq. ft. comfortably with Clean Burn Technology.
  • Generates a maximum peak heat output of 198,000 BTU¹.
  • 3.4 cu. ft., stainless steel lined firebox and fixed grate system accept 20” logs.
  • Pre-wired, front-mounted draft inducer simplifies installation.
  • Optional steel stand makes loading easier.
  • Easy-access, slide-in filter keeps blower clean and maximizes distribution air.
  • Longer burn times and higher heat distribution out-perform pre-EPA furnaces.
