Rated 4 out of 5Â by GoodDad Good Value for the money
We own a seasonal summer cottage in Minnesota. We shut it down for the winter. I shopped around and bought this one to replace the old wall furnace of similar dimensions. To heat the place (800 sq. ft.) on cool autumn days & nights, it does a fine job so far. It has to be alot more energy efficient than the 50 yr old unit, right? How long it holds up remains to be seen (planned obsolescence?) I bought the blower accessory too, which is noisier than I had hoped, and underpowered compared to my last furnace. I place a portable fan nearby to move air more forcefully. The installer said it was not difficult to work with including lp conversion. I also bought a thru the wall fan which I'm very happy with too, and is in the photo (if it uploads). There was a manufacturing dent on the access panel which I was able to easily fix. I had a problem finding attic vent pipe. Home Depot does not offer it. I found Amerivent brand type B vent pipe at another home center via special order. Summary; so far, I'm happy, but longevity remains to be seen. I'll report back in a few years.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Stuart difficult installation
The heaters description leaves out the fact that you need to purchase additional product specific exhaust vent parts that are very expensive. Heater should be manufactured with direct vent.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JHDIY Great value, easy install
This unit replaced a 50 yr old unit. Getting the old unit out was more of a chore (2.5 hours) than putting the new one in (1.5 hours). The previous home owners had redone the exhaust system thinking that would fix the old unit that was not venting well. The problem was the seams had come apart on the old unit. This new unit worked perfectly and when checked with my detector it registered zero on carbon monoxide emissions into the home. I bought the 35K unit and It puts out a ton of heat too. I put this in myself but having a second person would make this a lot easier even though the weight of the main unit was only about 80 pounds.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Murph do not know how this product performs as Home Depot does not sell the vent kit that is necessary to install this product
This furnace offered several features that were appealing to me. there is a vent kit that is not offered by home depot that is unique to this furnace and difficult to find especially if you are not an HVAC contractor you can not buy from these companies. Home Depot should either start stocking the required componets to install the furnace, make it very clear to purchasers that they will have to buy the needed componets from anohther dealer or stop selling the product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rusty nice furnace at a good price
The furnace itself is made well.for the price the Thermostat is very cheap, broke the tabs that hold the cover on first thing. Had to use a Thermostat I had from before. Instructions are to complicated than need be, can be confusing so looked at the drawings to understand how to install.
