Comments about Osburn 1600 High Efficiency EPA Wood Insert:

It heats my 900 sq ft space on the lowest setting, with outside temps in the low 40's. I burn Oak logs, and one log 16" X 6" diameter last for about 5 hrs, with the damper at it's lowest setting. The fan, however is a little loud

    Comments about Osburn 1600 High Efficiency EPA Wood Insert:

    Works great. I was able to heat up my house to 82 degrees (then my wife told me to stop adding the logs :-)) while it was only 8 degrees outside. The only thing I do not like is that it does not have any ash tray and you must let the fire die in order to clean the ashes. Otherwise the blower that comes with it is very powerful.
