We had a Valor fireplace installed in Dec 2014 in our basement. Best choice we ever made. The f/p is temp controlled and cycles on and off as needed. Kept our basement warm all winter and help keep our upstairs warm as well which meant the furnace came on less. Reduced our overall gas bill. It is beautiful as well. Our Sales Reps was efficient and helpful. Installation was quick and clean. Overall a good experience and recommend.
