I would recommend this item to a friend.
Vantage Hearth Mini Classic Hearth VGMR
March 2, 2012
This unit is compact without appearing "toy" or inadequate and it produces an impressive amount of warmth and ambiance. My unit is in a lower-level room and warms this room, which is below ground level and has a laminate flooring over concrete, and some heat also benefits the first floor. My whole-house unit is cycling less and the lower level is much more comfortable.
Pros:The unit was easy to install, is compact while producing comforting heat and is attractive. Customer service (I needed a little help getting the remote to function) was provided by a real human who was prompt and friendly.
Cons:This is a personal preference: I would like less heat to be released at the hood and all of the heat to be released via the screen.
