Mantis Fireplace Insert--Very efficient, but is it good?

archsteveAugust 23, 2010

Hi all,

Apparently Mantis Fireplace inserts are a fairly new product, and have a high efficiency (natural gas) rating. I am very tempted to get one, but I cannot find many reviews out there. Anybody know anything about them?

Your in luck.

My company JUST installed 6 Mantis firpelaces into a condo complex in Denver, CO.

I have to admit that these little guys are the ticket. Talk about kick butt.

They are somewhat easy to install, but, the product is totally cool and from what I hear (these are just finished) are very efficient.

Please contact me for more information and I can also offer pricing through my company to see what kind of pricing you can get.

You can't go wrong with these fireplaces.

jph1, I'm wondering if you got the feeling Mantis will take the wear and tear of very frequent use in those 6 condos. For example I hear that the very highest efficiency regular forced-air furnaces have more service calls than the 2nd tier efficient units. I love the idea of using Mantis as primary heat in a zone but in an advanced condensing design like Mantis I am a little nervous something will need service sooner or later. Like is it a small condo where this is the main heat source (frequent use) or a big condo where there is also central forced air maybe only occasional use if it's in a formal living room), or...

The word I'm getting is early adopters had some issues with their units, however the company seems to have made some changes which resolved most of them.
I would, however, like to hear from some actual users!
