We've got ours pre-used from a neighbour, perfect for our existing fireplace as there was no need for any building work. Easily installed and heat performance is excellent. Glass needs a daily clean, but will stay clear if well seasoned logs are burned with the airwash fully open (this will also minimise soot build up in your chimney - so it is a good way to run it). We light it every night (Oct - May) and it costs us about 60 in logs (bought unseasoned) for the year. Has small capacity, so standard sized logs need splitting, but I personally love getting the axe out (as Roger Deakin put it, that way the logs warm you twice). Great little fire if used correctly - would recommend to anyone without the space for a free-standing stove.
